a super kitsch budgie brooch for my vintage brooch collection
letter cards - they were from an old spelling game, like scrabble but without the board - I will be using them for craft projects and for personalising gift wrapping
teeny tiny playing cards with ships on to add to my collection of unusual playing cards (which I will be sharing very soon as part of my collections project)
a vintage Brownie reflex camera - I see quite a lot of these at car boots but they are always too pricey (like £5, which is expensive for me!) but this one was a steal at £2.
vintage polka dot plimsolls for a quid (I have loads of thrifted clothes I bought recently - should I blog pictures or am I the only person who cares that I got a dress for 50p?!)
this cute little tub is full of vintage cigarette cards with all sorts of gorgeous images on (and I got the whole lot for £2.50)
I LOVE DYMO! I have a new one but have always lusted after the vintage ones on Etsy... now I have one of my very own! And it came with a TON of tape (seriously about 25 rolls of the stuff, although my dog ate one when I got home) for only £2!
(yeah, not just boring black tape, but coloured ones too!)
two spoons to add to my collection (for reals, I collect everything)
I wanted to give you some warning before I shared this final purchase.... if you are prone to thrifting envy (as I am most certainly a sufferer) then I'd suggest you stop reading here because I found one of my greatest boot sale buys ever....
A BRAND NEW IN BOX DIANA CAMERA... for £2
it had a film in it but I buggered that up trying to work out why it wouldn't advance properly... but look at her.... my very own Diana to keep my Diana Mini company.
Sigh, I am a happy girl! You can read Siobhan's blog post about all her amazing finds right here. Oh, and I'm always looking for boot sale buddies, so if you live in the London area and want to rummage through other people's junk with me, then just holler!
