Carboot sale haul #7 - Mostly vintage homeware! :)

I've had a busy few weekends, which means that I hadn't been able to go to the carboot sale for a while, and I literally felt like I was getting withdrawal symptoms! I love getting up early on a Sunday morning and driving to the carboot with Joe, not knowing what we're going to stumble across each time. Sometimes I manage to find nothing and sometimes I come back with bags full of stuff! This Sunday though, I managed to go, and thankfully I found a few nice bits too!


I went to the carboot sale with my best friend and my boyfriend, and when we bumped into my sister and her boyfriend, my boyfriend decided to go off ahead with them so that me and my best friend could have a proper rummage through each stall. This also meant that I could buy a few little goodies for Joe without him knowing! I found this golden ship plate and knew instantly that he would love it. I almost walked straight past it without asking a price as I thought it would be so overpriced, but I'm so glad I didn't as it was only £2! I also found this little teacup with a ship on and a little Amsterdam style windmill for just 20p :)


 I've been on the lookout for a little teacup exactly like this for a while so that I can put my Yankee Candle Sampler in it and it can melt into the cup. I was so happy to find this one in white with pink flowers to match my bedroom, and it was a total bargain at 50p. I also bought these gold sun candle holders off the cutest little old couple for only £2.


These gorgeous set of pin up photos were on a stall that was absolutely full of framed photos and pictures. The man who was at the stall said that they were all from movie sets which is pretty cool! I paid £4 for the pair which is more than I would usually pay for things at a carboot, but I absolutely LOVED them and can't wait to get them up on my wall!


I managed to get all four issues of Vogue and Elle for £1 which will be great for some fashion research I should be getting on with right now for uni! I found this cute little Pears Soap sign with a vintage feel for 50p, and I thought it would look so cute in my bathroom. Finally, I found this burgundy knitted jumper for just 50p! I'd been on the lookout for one for ages, so when the lady said she wanted 50p I was so happy! :)


Thanks for reading :)

  4. You found some great stuff, especially the jumper which from the label I think is supposed to be from Edinburgh Woolen Mill (sad that I know this) so would have probably cost you around £20-£30 full price! x

  6. At the car boot sale this past weekend I got a collection of 3 elephants that went from big to small for 50p, I also got two vintage Tea Tins for £1 and my boyfriend got this amazing deal of getting a proper poker set for £4 (haggling down from £5). Then when we got home, he realized that a £1 had fallen in the box so he kind of got it for £3. Major bargain!

  9. I really love those nautical items! Carboot sales are my favourite, everything is just so cheap. We went to one yesterday morning, I didn't buy much this week just about 10 of the little perfume sample vials for 50p each from a lady who sells things for charity. I was super pleased though because she had Vivienne Westwood and mine has nearly ran out! xx
