weekend carboot

Have I mentioned how much I love carbooting?

Sunday my regular carboot mate and I decided to try somewhere new to us so we headed to the Kilburn Park School which has run on a Saturday for a while but is now also open on a Sunday.  It was smaller than expected with perhaps about 20 stall holders with everything from books to clothes some household goods and the normal random stuff.  I was able to pick up three expired film for £1 and a set of three jewellery crafting pliers for £2.  My friend also got some good deals like a vintage M&S skirt, another pack of crafting pliers and flip flops for her beach holiday.

However, that hadn’t quite quenched our carbooting thirst so we decided to head to our usual haunt – the Capital Carboot in Pimlico.  I think there were even more stall holders than usual because of the amazing weather (although there was a torrential downpour at one point).

I was able to get a vintage circle cake/bundt tin (which might be some sort of 70s meat jelly cooking thing but I am going to use it for cake); two trays; two teacups and saucers, two dinner plates and one side plate, a toast rack (which I am sure I will be able to find a practical use for in the absence of toast making marathons) and a high street dress for work.  All for the bargain price of about £20.  Seriously can never recommend this carboot enough.
