Yep you're right. We went carbooting again just for a change.
The Darling buds of May were blooming and the sun did shineth and biblical multitudes and the world and his wife had decided to set up stalls and people shopped in verdant pastures of a Dairy farm near Mallow in County Cork.
So what did we buy? Starting from left to right: a cottage teapot biscuit barrel, two sugar cottage pots and the green cottage butter dish and plate. I bought them for the wife's ever growing cottage teapot collections. I would say they are 1940's and would make good money in a antique shop. Look them up on Ebay!
I bought myself two brass M 80 mortar shells and a Lidl carrier bag full of brand new work gloves. Plus a poached egg plant and another plant I can't remember it's name.
Wifey purchased me The Concise Guide To Self Sufficiency by my smallholding guru, hero and writer John Seymour. I don't think anyone's inspired me more than that man. Well apart from Linda Carter when she played Wonder Woman that is!😊 I have big copies of the book but not a concise one. I must have read that book numerous times. It really is the self supporters bible. It inspired me to grow my own and rent allotments and end up with a smallholding. Also to write about such things.
We also bought the Antiques Source Book by Martin Miller. I will probably give that to my brother.
It was well worth the run out and we are well on our way to appearing in Hoarders very soon.🤔
