June was another busy but enjoyable month for me! In my last update I mentioned that I had found a property that I wanted to buy and my offer was accepted, but I was just waiting for the mortgage to be approved.

So carboot sale season is officially over for me now until April next year. I have had another pretty good run this summer, finding quite a few little bargains!

I haven’t had much luck with the carboot sale lately. I’ve only been three times this year so far and I haven’t really picked up anything special yet. Our local carboot has actually relocated to a smaller field and it’s a bit rubbish now, but hopefully when they move it back to its original location soon it will be better! I’m planning on holding a carboot sale soon too, because…
