I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t like to get a bargain and I have to confess that I am a secret car boot lover. This time of year is car boot season and I love nothing better than a trot around a packed field full of car booters and their wares at the weekend.
You never know what you are going to find and half the time you don’t even know you needed or wanted it until you’ve found it! Think of it as Ebay without the postage and packaging costs.
Now, I am quite a snobby car booter, I only buy good quality things in excellent condition (because why would you not) but believe me there are people who sell things that are only fit for the bin! I usually suss out the seller, you can instantly tell what sort of things people will be selling and whether you want to buy them from first impressions.
So I thought I would share with you my best bargains from this weekend. This is probably my favourite find – A brand new Boden dress for £4! I’ve got a Christening to go to in October and this will be perfect.
Baby clothes are also great on a car boot (if you find a decent stall) as they are barely worn, so practically brand new. We all know how quickly baby’s grow. I normally find more girls clothes than boys, but you only need one good stall to find some lovely things.
I paid £1 for the Cath Kidston top and £0.20p for the John Lewis dungarees – Bargains!
I love reading, and there are always books to buy from as little as £0.10p each, as well as children’s books galore.
I paid £0.30p each for the children’s books.
BE WARNED – It can be a dangerous place to take your children -you will end up with more toys and soft toys in your house as they seem to be magnets to them and sometimes they even want to buy things you already have at home!
