Car boot bargains

I have, I think, only been to two car boot sales. One in mid-August and one this weekend just gone.

At the first one I got an Aulos tenor recorder at a reasonable price (£8). It's not a great instrument but then I'm not a great player either! I also got a toy London Routemaster bus for Theo for 50p. It has become one of the "must have" toys.

This weekend I got a toy for Theo that I was too tight to buy for him new. My nephew has one and T was very taken with it when we visited last Christmas but I wasn't spending £36 on this battery operated toy. Got it for £7 at the boot sale at a local garden centre which we only went to because they also had a "country show" with a local viking era re-enactment group present.

You got a tenor recorder for only 8 pounds? I know the pound is worth more than the dollar, that's really surprising. {Smile}

I see what you mean about that toy. It looks fun... but it doesn't look like THAT much fun! {Smile}

I love car boot sales and I've been to loads. Not since I've lived here though. I've had many bargains over the years. What a bargain you got. T will be pleased :-)

Ooh cool, a tenor recorder! I should dust mine off sometime. Any news from the Carnivals?
