Yesterday was 25 degrees and we went to two carboot sales. One in county Cork and one in county Kerry. There was a myriad of items for sale. Even the kitchen sink. I jest not!😊
Here's some of the things we spotted and bought:
I even managed to capture my shadow. I am definitely not a ghost.
Two hardwood elephants to go with the every growing collection.
Do you want to guess what we paid for each item? Go on don't be shy. 🤔
Have you been to any carboot sales lately? What did you buy or sell?
I call mine a Draining Spade! It's a handy tool to ownReplyDelete
Good name! They are handy for digging drainage trenches or for burying a water pipe.ReplyDelete
I like the jumper. I bet it was a bargain.ReplyDelete
Thanks JayCee. I paid 15 Euros for a brand new hand kitted Aran jumper. They are around fifty Euros in the high streets shops. Some cost over an hundred. I've put it away for Winter. It's raining here this afternoon.ReplyDelete
A bargain then! Still warm and sunny here but your rain is on its way over.Delete
Oh how we miss car booting. We can't get around them any more but most of my house is from car boots. I bet you didn't pay much for those items. I like the look of that jumper it would cost pounds to knit that. well done.ReplyDelete
That's why I am always wombling looking for the bargains JayCee. Very heavy rain and the gardens and plants are having a very welcome drink. It will soon look like the emerald isle once again.ReplyDelete
Thanks Briony. We use to go to some massive carbootsales when we lived in England. There aren't so many over here and you have to get up early and travel an hour or so to get there.ReplyDelete
That jumper is a real bargain. Hope you don't need it too soon.ReplyDelete
Yes. It was Linda. My wife is knitting one for herself. The wool o ly cost four Euros from a carboot sale. Thanks.Delete
Long nosed shovel = 12 eurosReplyDelete
Sledgehammer = 8 euros
Aran jumper = 12 euros
Two hardwood elephants = 6 euros for the pair.
TOTAL = 36 euros
Close Mr Pudding. Twelve Euros for the long nosed shovel is correct. Sledgehammer 7 Euros. Total 19 Euros. The seller gave me a Euro back luck money. Aran jumper 15 Euros and the two hardwood elephants were ten Euros.ReplyDelete
That 'jumper' is a wonderful find. Along with the wool. Along with a wife who can turn that wool into another jumper for herself. Well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks Debby. Now I have to sit next to a knitter watching the television every night. Oh well.ReplyDelete
