Carboot haul #6 - His and hers :)

As I'm now officially back home from uni for the Summer, me and Joe will more than likely be going to the carboot sale every single Sunday morning! I thought it would be nice to include some of his buys too as he's just like me when it comes to shopping and loves a good bargain piece of clothing or home decor. The weather today was absolutely gorgeous and it made me remember how much I love going to the carboot! I'm pretty sure I sunburnt my hair parting though, but we were pretty lucky with our buys this week as we got lots of goodies! :) 


There were so many stalls today because of the lovely weather, and it was nice to stroll around in the sun as we've gone before when it's been freezing cold and it's nowhere near as fun! There was a lovely cake stall which I hadn't seen before so we treated ourselves to a mid-morning snack :)


 I found this lovely white crochet bottom top for only £1 and I can't wait to wear it! I also found this cute little paisley scarf for £1. It's the perfect size to tie in my hair or wear around my neck and I really want to get some more paisley into my wardrobe. Lastly, I found this un-opened Karl Lagerfeld bottle of coke for 50p. They're about £1.50 new anyways and I've started making a collection of the fashion designer coke bottles on my window sill including the Jean Paul Gaultier ones. I want to collect all of them!


I picked up this lovely Topshop skater dress in my size for only £2 and Joe picked up this aztec print camera strap for his collection for £1. He recently graduated after studying Photography at uni so he has a lovely little collection of cameras and camera accessories, he always manages to find himself some nice bits at the carboot!



Joe found this lovely ship painting framed in a burgundy and gold frame for £3, got the three packs of film for 50p and the ten pack of Polaroid film for £1. Even though the films are out of date, he likes to experiment with them and you can sometimes get really unusual colours from out of date film! I found this un-used Balmi in the Blackcurrant flavour for only £1. I was so happy when I found this as they RRP for around £5 and I've been wanting to try one out for ages!


Joe never really seems to find that much clothing as the carboot, so he was pleased to find a Vans checkered shirt and a Stussy t-shirt for only £2 each. They were both in brilliant condition, and the shirt was so soft - I will definitely be borrowing it in the colder months!


Lastly, and most probably leastly, I found this little pig mug! Me and Joe are both obsessed with pigs, and plan to have only vintage floral and piggy mugs in our house! He's a bit naff, but for 20p I couldn't resist him!


Thanks for reading :)

  6. Amazing finds! I love carboot sales :) my boyfriend & I got up early this morning to go to one before he had work at 10am, we don't make them very often because my boyfriend is usually working but we plan to go to as many as we can! I really love the crochet bottom top, and the aztec camera strap - that's so unusual and lovely! xx
