An Early start

So the children have gone to Cornwall to stay with my parents for the start of the holiday, we have a few child free days and what do we decide to do?



Get up at a ridiculously early hour on a Sunday morning, way before we are normally woken by the children, out the door by 6.30am ....


.... to queue to get into a Car Boot sale!!



We had sorted and priced everything before we went, as past experience had told us to be organised and turned our sitting room heap.....




....into a reasonable display - it was so busy and really hot and we had very little to come home with - so all in all a worthwhile morning.

So all that was left to do was count the money - we made just shy of £300.00! Not bad for a Sunday mornings work!

Must admit I prefer the Flea Market - looking forward to the next one in 2 weeks time, where I can spend all our earnings to fill the house with stuff, all over again!

You did really well, if only you had enough stuff for every week that would be a nice little earner :)

I love a good boot fair, doesn't matter if I'm buying or selling the thought of a bargain..

Well done you, I'm more a buyer than a seller.
