Carboot Sale Triathlon

Hey, where'd everybody go? Are you ALL outside enjoying this fine weather? Really? ALL of you?

Well, if anyone is around then you might like to have a look at this HUGE pile of stuff I dragged back to the cave on Sunday. I really need to open a (bricks and mortar) shop or get the sole use of an airplane hanger or something. I am out of control. Look at me! Wheeeeeeeeeeee!

Ahem.





Just look at the triangles on that....











And there's more, (see I told you I was out of control,) but let's not binge greedily, I'll come back to show you the nice dresses I found!

Serious shopping here!

I'm very intrigued by that clothes (pattern book!)

Yes I tend to spend my days out, but also my computer has the "jilly billys" it works randomly!!!

I'm still here!!! Beavering a way :)
Blogland is very quiet, you're right, it must be the sun. It's TOO hot to go outside in the South of France though, so shutters are closed from 11 - 4pm!
What a stash - love those puzzles!

Becky said...

Francesca said...

I'm here! I'm here! In the middle of winter (though really it feels more and more like spring this week).

Great book covers. Great things. Ah!

What the... is that some kind of Charles and Diana (or even Camilla?) jigsaw puzzle? Sheesh!

Great finds. Long may the lovely weather last!

Clare said...

I've noticed it's been a bit quiet too, although I'm guilty of not keeping up with blogging at the moment. I need my vitamin D intake for the year!
Loving your finds and your glasses from the last post!
