This is my favourite local carboot so I thought I would share a few shots of the weird and wonderful things that I often wish I could bring home with me! As you can see from the pictures there is such a selection of not just the usual carboot stalls with books and knick-knacks but plenty of vintage stalls, house clearance and retro delights! I could go every week and easily spend £100! I'm really craving an old metal sign at the moment but it just needs to be the right one (and at the right price...) and I'm in love with vintage sideboards, I have seen two here now that I would have straight away if there was any room for them! And they were only £20! *sigh* Never mind I'm sure there will be more another day!
Now of course I didn't come away empty handed (how could I with such a veritable treasure trove of goodies on display!?) I bought one of the little old bird cages pictured below, it was a bit sad looking and the back section was falling off but generally in good condition! So as you can see I have given the inside a lick of paint as that was very grubby and only paint could cover it, but the outside is nicely worn and I want to keep some of the original feel of the piece. Inside I plan to line it with some pretty paper or fabric and make some little wire birds to home inside, so I will keep you updated with my progress on my little project! Hope you have enjoyed todays carboot-fest...x
