Bargain Bin

I promised a few posts ago to share some photos of the stuff I bought at the last boot sale I went to, and here it is. I'll keep it short and sweet as I have a ton of fairy cakes to make for my Mum (she's a teacher and it's her last day at school tomorrow before summer, so she wanted to take in some cakes for her class.)

this is the second of these I have found, but the colours are different

vintage 80s rub on transfers (pretty sure I used to have identical ones)

vintage poodle figurine

two more polaroid cameras to add to the family (both use 600 film so fingers crossed I will be able to acquire some soon so I can use them)

French edition of Le Petit Prince (with really beautiful illustrations, some of them are even full page ones)

vintage 50s pink poodle toy, and ceramic Minnie Mouse photo frame

a ton of vintage floral fabric which the sweet lady let me have for £3! I need some ideas of what to make with it... I might make some large bow brooches from some of it, but there's quite a lot of yardage to use up.

And possibly the best buy EVER. I found this Lomo LC-A camera for £2! I got a serious case of the shakes in my hands when I was paying for it, and had to resist the urge to do a little dance on the spot in case the stall owner suddenly realised his error and demanded I give it back! (For those of you not in the know these cameras sell on Ebay for about £150 to £200, and new models are on the Lomography site for about £250. Bargain.
