Learn Something New Everyday

Today I learned.......just how annoying it is to travel 45 minutes to a Boot Sale.......a really good Boot Sale......only for it to pour with rain when you're only half way round.
I learned that when it rains.....everyone wants to leave via one small exit......all at the same time.......so it takes 45 minutes just to get out!!
I learned.......it's even more annoying when it's brilliant sunshine by the afternoon.
But I did also learn....... that even in a short space of time......you can bag some good bargains....including a new throw for the dogs' sofa......£1.
.
4 pretty necklaces........£1.70
2 books.....70p
a lovely 3D ceramic photo frame.....£2
A wooden photo frame with stand....ready to alter slightly......50p.
I learned......that despite deciding to buy no more clothes for an unborn baby........who according to DS "already has more clothes than me".......I just can't resist.......
                         
such a pretty little jacket and hand knitted cardigan.....£1.50!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonder what I'll learn tomorrow???

Awesome buys! I love the wooden frames especially. And the baby clothes are too sweet!!! I find that if you buy clothes for 6 months to a year old, they will be needed as everybody is busying buying itty bitty things.

You just need to learn not to tune into the weather forecast lol. Lovely little bargains, worth getting wet I'd say!

You did well Jacky - Annabel Karmel is on my cookbook shelf ... she has great ideas for kids :-)

Yes, another vote for Annabel Karmel here, I think that's a great find. Oh, and the necklaces too.

You did good in a short amount of time! I absolutely love the photo frame stand. Lots of possibilities there. Yes, it is disheartening to go to a really good boot sale (flea market to me) and then have it rain.

oh no! how annoying indeed. I met dulcie and introduced myself. i was amazed at her techniques, and her new stamps are gorgeous. Fergus the dragon. I really hope she does well out of this.
