Carboot haul #3

So I went to the carboot sale with my friend Georgia this morning. After getting about 4 hours sleep last night I didn't feel too good this morning, but I'm so glad I got off my butt and went because I got some lovely things!


Vintage tapestry handbag - £1
I love this so much! I bought one before but the zip broke and it generally got worn and torn, but I love the pattern on this, and it looks like it will go with most of my outfit colours - black, gold, burgundy etc.



Camera bag - 25p
I couldn't believe how cheap this was! I swear my one when I bought my SLR camera was atleast £20! I bought this as a little present for my boyfriend, as he does photography as a job. I'm sure he's got loads already but this was a cute size and a cheap price!



Vintage tapestry weekend bag - £2
I am so so so in love with this bag! It's big enough to take for a few nights away, or if I need to take alot of things into uni one day, and the pattern is gorgeous!



Vintage rose jumper - £1
I was so happy to find this too! I've gone a bit off vintage jumpers recently, as I went through a stage of buying millions a few years ago, but I stumbled across this one and I thought it was so cute! The colours, fit and texture are all perfect :)



Topshop daisy peter pan collar dress - £2.50
The price is a little bit more than I usually pay for clothes at carboot sales, but I have wanted this dress for ages, and it goes on eBay for like £10 so this was a right bargain really!


 
Primark v-neck playsuit - £1
I had been looking at this playsuit on eBay for a while too, so to get this for £1 is a right bargain!



Two massive curtains - £2
I bought these because I loved the paisley pattern, and there was just so much material. I am planning to make a cute little paisley dress out of this, or maybe even a few!



Vintage crochet collar shirt - £1
This is so cute, and I think that now I've got reddish hair it'll bring out the red in the shirt. I've always been obsessed with crochet collars, so ones for £1 are a bonus!



Tapestry glasses case - 20p
This was probably my bargain of the day! I bought it off the most cutest old man too! I've had my iPhone just over a week now, but I ordered a phone case from Hong Kong which can take about 3 weeks to arrive and I'm getting so paranoid that I'm going to drop it! But I found this gorgeous tapestry glasses case which it fits into perfectly, and it's so padded too!



And lastly, here's my new red hair :)
You can't see it that well, but to me it looks so different! I'm most happy that my hair's all one colour again as for a while it was almost dip dyed naturally, but not in a nice way!


Thanks for reading :)
Do you go to carboot sales?
Have you managed to find any bargains recently?

  28. I wish there were car boot sales in the US... I guess we have flea markets/thrift stores, but because I live in NYC everything is SO overpriced. Urgh.

    That camera case is an amazing find because when you get them in stores they are unnecessarily expensive.

    Great finds. Can't believe you got that Topshop dress for practically nothing...
