More Eclectic Car Boot Sales Finds. Maybe Japanese Art Treasure?

We went carbooting the other Sunday.  Not selling but buying.

I love looking for bargains and I always walk round the cars boot stalls at least 3 times.  You always miss something or something catches ones eye.  

Here's some of the treasure we purchased:

James Herriot collection egg cups.
Shot glasses from London. I like a night cap, especially if I am camping on one of my roughing  it trips like recently.
Wedgewood trinket dish.
Another cottage teapots from the nineteen forties.  I only paid 5 Euros for that and I will sell it at a profit some time.
Hardwood African warrior figures.
Unusual Japanese lady in silk Kimono next to lake.  It looks like it's been drawn in pencil and coloured in plus it's signed by Yukky Fuzi I think. 
The artists signature.
 Any one got any ideas?  I bet Rachel will have some idea of who it is?  I only paid 5 Euros for it.  

German Shepherd fire screen.  Our Heidi thinks it her.

I also bought an hoe with a blade attachment and a ridger for potatoes and yet another pair of loppers.

Have you been to any good carboot sales lately?

  7. I don't think we have carboot sales here anymore. I think everyone gets a stall at the Farmers Market instead.

  8. They're massive especially in England River. They were one thing I really missed during lockdown. It's great to get up on a Sunday and have somewhere to go to. Even make some cash.
