Car Boot Sale...without the Car Boot
What a satisfying day! I spent this afternoon hawking household items at a car boot sale sponsored by the Spring Chicks, a local Womens' Institute group. I've been rummaging around the house for days looking for unneeded bits and bobs and am pleased to say that not only have I cleaned the house but I've made some cash 'to boot'. Sorry, I can never resist a pun ;)
I'm still amazed at how much stuff we still have in our house though, even after several clean outs. But I'm even more amazed that there are so many people out there wanting to buy it. In fact, the event was supposed to begin at noon but there was already a queue at the entrance by 11.30! In the end I sold a couple of boxes of items that included a beat up carpet for £3, two mirrors for £1 a piece and a score of DVDs at £3 a pop. All those little sells did add up and even after paying for my table fee and buying a pair of sneakers (brand new!) I still took home £50. I say that's cause for celebration - or at least a good bit of Sunday relaxation.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend :)
