Carboot Sale Buys – Bits & Pieces ♥

 Since my last carboot sale post I’ve been to three more bootsales and have found a few more nice bargains! I’ve seperated it into two posts, so this one is the general buys and the next post will be the clothing items I found. So here’s what I’ve picked up…

Carboot Sale Buys – Bits & Pieces ♥At the end of the Bank Holiday boot sale there was a man with a van full of rubbish that had it all strewn out all over the floor, and he said everything was 50p each. I found all these bits seperately from eachother and he let me have the whole lot for £1! It’s an English maker and is painted with pretty purple posies. I got three cake plates, two saucers, three tea cups, and a milk jug!

This is one of my favourite films, Bride Wars, and this DVD was 50p.

I try not to go on about it too much, but I’m Eminem obsessed. I already had this album but lost it so bought another copy to listen to in my car! Only 50p.

I picked up this Kirsties Homemade Home hardback book from a seller who was selling a load of old tat, but I found this in a box and they let me have it for 50p! It’s RRP is £20 and it was released in 2010 so is quite new and is in perfect condition.

This isn’t for me, but my parents have been redecorating their bedroom and needed a new simple wooden bedside table, and I spotted this and it was only £6 and is made from solid, unfinished pine in great condition!

If you never bought these cheap cushions from Ikea then you missed out! They are the most comfortable things EVER! I affectionately called my old one my ‘dribble pillow’ and it ended up being a disgusting shade of grey after being washed so many times. These ones were brand new and 50p each, which isn’t a huge bargain as I think they were only 80p in Ikea, but they don’t sell them anymore!

This little floral sugar bowl and milk jug set was only £1! I actually bought the same sugarbowl from a carboot sale last summer, but now I have two, and a jug!

This Soap and Glory make up case was 50p, although I’m not sure I needed it!

And finally, this set of number cutters for cake decorating were only 5p each, which is great because these sell for over a fiver online!
And that’s it for now, but soon I will do my carboot sale clothing bargains post! You can see all my carboot sale posts here.

    You picked up some really nice things I especially like the china cups and saucers. I'm starting to go to car boot sales more often they can be very hit and miss but its always great when you find something good. I love knowing how much I saved. I know what you mean about the cushions from Ikea I have the ones you brought and they are really super comfy! What great bargains 🙂 Looking forward to your clothes post xxx

    ahh I love the teaset – SO good to get that all for £1! The Kirsty book is great too, they obviously didn't know what they were selling! I sometimes head to my carboot at closing time; managed to get two teacups and a vintage jug for 50p the other week but nothing compared to your bargains :). I have a post about some of my bargains here if you're interested 🙂
