Balmy Booting Day

It was such a nice day we decided to have a ramble around our local car boot. It is very much a social occasion for both sellers and buyers alike. We always manage to stop and catch up with friends and neighbours.
Today I purchased some books for the grandkids at 25p each quite a snip. My eagle eyed daughter managed to buy several sewing and knitting magazines so ample reading for us as well. My favourite buy this week though was this box/canister. It is made primarily of ply The seller advised it is quite old (I think around early 70's which makes me feel old now) and confirmed she bought it in France. I really like it and thought it would be ideal to store my crochet hooks so it now has pride of place on the top of my study shelves.

  1. I love the phrase, "a ramble around the car boot" --ha! it makes me smile. We say nothing like that around here!
