Fabulous weather for the boot sale this morning, and there were LOADS of sellers and buyers out and about too - which is just as well as the darned thing is not on next week because there is a balloon fiesta taking place on the site. Mind you, I'm quite excited to see lots of balloons in the skies around here, I've never spotted one in the last seven years - and am even thinking of forking out the £35.00 it would cost P and I to go and see the night glow and mass take off. I really miss not seeing balloons floating serenely by - they're a beautiful and very common sight in Bristol - and I never tire of seeing them from both near and far.
Which goes very nicely with the Holly Hobbie little cloth doll - 20p - who is sitting on a humungous piece of embroidered corduroy I found. The cord was £2.00 and I reckon there is at least 4 yards of it.
Away from the fabric-buying frenzy, I found this embroidered tea cosy - 50p, and a boxed set of Roger & Gallet guest soaps - £1.50. I really like these soaps and they're tres expensive to buy in the shops so I was very pleased to find them.
A couple of nice toiletries for me - Hackett Body Wash (I prefer a more masculine scented shower gel to the very floral ones) and a bottle of Frizz-Ease shampoo - I could definitely do with that for my fuzzy barnet. They were 50p each.
And a Sonic the Hedgehog T-shirt for my nephew - 50p. I did also buy three books for re-selling on Amazon but, as is usually the case these days, two of them were utter rubbish. The third one was quite a good find though. All in all, it was a pretty good morning.
Linking up with Me and My Shadow's Magpie Monday.
