Car Boot Sale, England


Spending this heat-filled weekend weather with the family at the east coast of England and stumbled across a car boot sale during a drive. Of course, we didn’t pass the chance on adding more to the endless amount of stuff we have at home.
This post is relevant as I made some (self-proclaimed) splendid purchases which will be taken to my new temporary home in Deutschland, as shown below.
If it is of interest, the four items:
  1. 50p book called ‘Star of the Sea’ about Irish immigrants travelling to New York to escape Ireland’s famine, among other things. Rave reviews it seems, so might be worth a read.
  2. Authentic watercolour painting of Norfolk Broads, painted and signed by a man from the local area. Cost and Value? Certainly seems a lot more than the £1.50 I managed to haggle.
  3. 3 snazzy coasters for just £1.
  4. A new tube of tennis balls for a pound!

All in all, I’d say a pretty good haul. And with still £1 left from my fiver, I treat myself to a nice cone of ice cream on this lovely summer’s day.
