Car Boot Sales Banter

Usually at a car boot you expect to hear the joy a certain item might bring to your life, how it is a must read book or a film you just have to watch!  Instead my friend upon me picking up anything from her stall, said things like “waste of time reading that one” and “that film is still in its wrapper because its got a rubbish plot”…

So worst sales pitch of the year goes to my lovely friend and fellow blogger Katie Cupcake.  I think she should stick to cakes, she could never run them down as she does a particularly fine job when it comes to baking.

We left a considerable few pounds lighter in money but a lot heaver in weight, with an assortment of treasure that the boys insisted they needed...  

Yet another plastic hammer for their growing DIY collection and a Dora ball not even in the picture –  So more toys to slowly fill the house to capacity! yippee!

Nothing like a good car boot and a chance to indulge my tombola habit, especially when it’s for a very good cause as an old friend of mine was raising money for Great Ormond Street Hospital.


  1. What can I say... I'm an honest saleswoman! lol x

  2. when we finally got there everyone had packed up :( So we spent all our money on the tombola and didn't win a thing - oh well, at least I don't have to find space for any more treasures (junk)

  3. L♡V a car booty

  4. You know I've never been to a car boot sale. I should. x

  5. I haven't been to a car boot sale in SUCH a long time (and I really miss them!) but I actually think I would be charmed by your friend's honesty and would buy stuff anyway!
