Spring Bank Holiday Monday + What I Wore

May 8, 2012

Yesterday we had our Spring bank holiday here. Nothing better to do but to go to a carboot sale. Oh, how I love these, all the kitsch and all the bargains… and even though it was really small, it wasn’t disappointing.

Two thick 100% wool Irish jumpers for £5, plus the lady threw in the belt as I was admiring the leather craft braiding and the Celtic style buckle.

The Great British Cookbook, Enid Blyton’s Everyday Stories and Sleepyland Stories, 50p each.

The best finds of the day: Charles and Di biscuit box and mug from their wedding in 1981 and a mug from the Queen’s jubilee in 2002. All for £1 each.

The day was mostly unpleasant and with some rain, but we had a nice lunch at the pub and nipped out when the rain stopped for a couple of shots:

Cardigan : Vintage
Long Sleeve tee: Primark
Beach Skirt: Primark
Shoes: Billy Sandal at Monki

And another one because Carl wanted to be a little artistic. (thanks Carl for taking the photos)

How was your Monday?

    You look like a breath of fresh (h)air! Love it!! Great finds, too. One of these days, I'm crossing the water so I can say “jumper” instead of sweater.

    Great finds?
    Cute jumpers, how nice of the seller to give you the belt for free.
    I find that going to a smaller boot sale you find more treasures.
    Monday i went to a further bigger boot sale and all i found was lip balms.
    I also would of snatced up Charles and DIana bisquit box to use for the jubilee.
    What an awesome beach scene skirt.
