Car Boot Haulin'.

I can't actually remember the last time I headed to a car boot sale before yesterday. I've been dying to go 'carbooting' for some time and as the weather has been okay, we decided to have a browse at our local car boot. Myself and the hubby played a little version of Bargain Hunt and each went and sought out the best bargains. Between us we managed to spend under £10 on our goodies so I thought I'd share a few of the bargains I picked up.

I know this won't be to everyone's taste, but I'm a sucker for anything bunny based. I picked up this cute rabbit plate for 50p. I haven't quite decided what to do with it, but no doubt it will fit nicely into place on my dressing table somewhere.

Next I spotted this M&S leather bag for £1.75. My plain black shoulder bag from Primark is on it's last legs so I knew this would be the perfect replacement. It's amazing quality and I love the croc print design and gold hardwear. 

Miranda is easily one of my favourite comediennes and I've been wanting to pick this book up for some time. I managed to grab this in a 3 for £1 bundle along with some other books the hubby spotted, so all in all this was 33p for the hardback version.

I also managed to grab a tartan dress originally from Glamourous for a tiny £2. It's practically brand new and in perfect condition. This will get a lot of wear in the cooler months.

Finally my most favourite purchase is this stunning turquoise Foxcroft suitcase for a tiny £4. I spotted this on a stall when I was browsing and couldn't leave without it. I won't be using this to carry my holiday clothes in, but it looks perfect in the corner of my room as a decorative piece. I did want to use it as storage too, but I need to pick the locks first! I'm just completely in love with the shape, design and the colour. Easily my favourite buy of the day.

Do you enjoy hunting around car boot sales?

  5. That suitcase is just dreamy! Something very Mad Men about it, I can see it in Sally Draper's bedroom! I don't drive so I can't really get to car boot sales, but I'm a big fan of a rake in charity shops for cute plates, ornaments, glassware and other bits. In fact, I found an old case for sheet music in a charity shop which as my daughter's initials embossed on it!

  6. I LOVE the suitcase, but the bunny plate wins it for me (like you I'm a sucker for anything with rabbits on, even though I have eight of the rascals in my garden!)
