Etsy shop preview...

After the amazing crafting and thrifting trip to Glasgow with Vicky on Saturday, we followed it up with an epic car boot adventure on the Sunday. What a haul I landed! As well as the below items soon to appear in my Etsy shop I also bought a handmade pink tea cosy shaped like a house (photos to follow obviously!), a blue stripy knitted tea cosy (the lady gave it to me for free!), Delia's complete how to cook for £1, a gardening encyclopedia for 50p, 3 coasters with vintage French adverts printed on them for £1, a noticeboard I plan to cover in fabric and diagonal ribbon for £1 and a set of 6 egg cups with 3 matching plates and bowels in this lovely blue and white Scandinavian design for £3.50. Photos of my personal finds to follow but here's a sneak preview of the things I discovered for the shop...

I ♥ thrifting. I do not ♥ spilling tea on my keyboard and mouse, the scroll wheel seems to have broken and the arrow keys are all sticky, sad day.

Woah! Ace finds - I must see this tea cosy!

What carboot sales did you go to? I miss decent carboot sales since moving up here, nothing has yet beaten (or even come close to) the midlands ones I used to visit :(

Thank you! I tried to take some photos this afternoon but I got home just too late to get decent ones, that's the plan for the weekend now!

I went to the one at Omni car park on a Sunday morning, it's pretty good, LOADS of stalls. It's supposed to be 9-1 but we got there around 10.30-11ish and folk were starting to pack up by 12.30 so we didn't have a huge amount of time to see everything. I'd suggest going earlier if you can be bothered to get up that early on a Sunday!

I stopped going to the Omni one as it got rubbish - I guess I should give it another chance!
