It was the last of four large car boot sales that happen throughout the summer, at one particularly pleasant venue.
I was selling at the last ones, but still recovering from my surgery I was attending as a buyer this time instead.
Mr Thrift Bee was talked into joining me. Mr Thrift Bee does not like car boot sales, and once he decides he doesn't like something it is very hard to get him to change his mind.
He came along in good humour and carried my bags all morning. It may have been because of this that i went a bit mad, bought quite a lot and even managed a few things on my thrift list.
You spend all your life dreaming of one day owning your own camper van and then all of a sudden two come at once!! The VW is a money box and of course will be used for the camper van fund. The other was given to friends that are currently actively shopping for one, hopefully as a good luck charm.
For €1.50 i couldn't resist another vanity bag, good condition inside, but I think the outside used to be white and someone dyed it (badly) blue.
I probably have enough Le parfait jars but never pass them up.
The large jar with aluminium lid is a cracker, Mr Thrift Bee spyed it ,he has a good eye, and often spots things that i have missed and this jar was only €1.
I picked up a nice selection of crochet items throughout the morning.
A letter tray/paper organiser has been on my thrift wish list for some time, it is easy to find plastic ones but i was very pleased with these Ikea ones.
I have also been after a new fruit bowl. I dropped something on the one i have had for years and needed a replacement. It will also be used as a salad bowl on occasion. Little Bee is a great fruit eater and i'm a big believer in always having it in easy reach for her just to help herself. Another well spent €1.
We don't own a scrabble board. This is a travel one in its own zip up case. It's not old, the letters are plastic, but it will sit with my collection of board games waiting for a camper van, or a power cut.
Finally some vintage teatowels.
Nice recipes printed on it. We often get given bags of apples in autumn from kindly neighbours with more productive apple trees than our own.
Our best apple tree will this year, be offering from its boughs, just one solitary apple, which is about the size of a small plum.
From the year i met Mr TB - strange to me to think this classes as proper vintage now!
Neither of us have ever been to Australia. I just need a 26 year old Australian to gift it to.
