Car Booty


I haven't posted any car boot finds for a while so I thought I'd better make up for it & show you what I found this morning.
When I awoke I was surprised & bewildered to see that above us was blue stuff...whatever could that be? Why! It was a blue sky!! ;-)

So Mr Cottage & I set off nice & early & this is what we found....


Lovely vintage books, a gorgeous pink pressed glass vase & a knitted tea cosy....
(Notice Toby peering around the corner?)



Gardening & Enid Blyton books.....


A Terry's chocolate box & a sweet puppy picture.....




An unused hand mirror & brush, a printed cot sheet, a comical tea towel & in the corner you can see a crocheted granny square scarf (never used).....





A collection of vintage baby congratulations cards from 1937 & a set of unused coffee wrappers which would look fabulous in a frame.



There was also a boxed set of assorted kitchen knives, a baby gown & a couple of vintage wooden coathangers - one from an hotel & one from Harrods - which I seem to have missed out on the photos!

So, all in all, pretty good pickings!

  4. Those baby cards are really fantastic! Not long ago I was looking through my mum's baby book and she had such a similar card (although she was born later, during the War.) I used to study the card in detail when I was a child...

  9. I had a great boot today too! The weather was perfect and the boot was a good one too! And now I get to pour over what over people got over a cuppa - You got a great haul - we have such similar tastes - I actually think I got a pillow case today in the same design as your cot sheet!

  18. Hi, Great 'trove'! Haven't been able to go booting for a few weeks and really miss the thrill of the chase (or hunt) if you see what I mean.
