Carboot Sale Buying & Selling ♥

So a couple of weekends ago I held a stall at my local carboot sale. I had so much stuff to sell it was unbelievable! It was almost entirely old (very old!) clothes and some old and new make up/nail polish etc. I went along with my plans to sell everything for £1 or 50p, because I just had too much stuff to price it all individually. After selling almost every single item, I came home with just over £160! If you’re thinking of doing a carboot sale, you can check out this post I did last year on top selling tips. I was so pleased to have made so much, far more than I was expecting! So if you’d like to make some extra cash I really recommend it.

Anyway I left my Mum to babysit my stall for a little while and went for a walk to see what I could spend my new cash on! So here’s what I bought..

This floral bowl is actually quite large (fruit bowl sized) so I’m not really sure how I’ll use it, but it was only 20p :O

This gorgeous red Warehouse dress was also 20p from the same seller, but unfortunately all of the buttons are missing, so I will have to get some replacements!

This is probably my favourite buy! I found this gorgeous bird print dress on a stall with not much else on it, and it was only £1 and in perfect condition!

And finally, I picked up this long length real wooden framed mirror for only £2! I’d been browsing for one for my new dressing room, so this was perfect!

And that’s it 🙂 Have you picked up any bargains lately?

    Great little vintage finds! Also, If I were you I'd spray paint the wooden mirror white to give it that rustic shabby chic look! (:

    Some Fantastic bargins and some lovely items you have bought, my local carboots are normally things people would take to the skip, and far to over priced! When i used to live in aylesbury, there was always some amazing things to be had.. but in poole there are over priced crap that should be in the tip!
