Today was my one chance over Easter to get out stock-hunting and I wasn't going to waste it, sacrificing a lie-in to go early to a local-ish boot sale.
It seemed many other people had the same idea, there were many more buyers than sellers and I bumped into several other dealers from the antiques arcade where I have my unit.
Fortunately we weren't all after the same type of stock, so I managed to pick up a few goodies.
My favourites have to be these Vernon Ward floral prints, and the sweet blue-tit tapestry picture.
The trugs were bought from a gentlemen who makes them to supply a shop and had decided to bring a few to the boot sale. I bought a couple and the rest were soon snapped up. Later I heard him mumbling to himself "I wish I'd brought more of the trugs" whilst I was wishing I had bought all of them!
The rest of my purchases were just a few trinkets, the beads are rosaries. A bigger haul would have been nice, but at least the trip was worthwhile.
The pretty roses below are on a couple of Spode soup bowls which I rescued from a friend - can you believe she was going to use them for a plate-smashing competition!
Thank you for your Easter wishes on my last post, hope everyone had a lovely weekend, over too soon as usual. I have the luxury of an extra day off work tomorrow, but plenty to do anyway.
Have a good week!
