A few finds from the World's Biggest Car Boot Sale!

Although it's a few weeks late, I just thought that I would share with you some of my treasures from the World's Biggest Car Boot Sale! I believe this event needs an exclamation mark! I'm not 100% sure if it is officially the "World's Biggest" but it did have around 400 stalls and is definitely one of my most looked forward to events of the year.

This year particular year it was stinking hot and I had a tired and cranky almost 2 year old toddler on my hands. She did finally fall asleep in the pram which gave me about an hour to myself to race around and look for goodies.

  • I bought this sweet Minolta SLR to replace my old Minolta that is now filled with mould after it experienced the 2007 floods. I haven't had a real close look at it yet but I would like to throw a roll of film in it over the Christmas break.

  • I grabbed this roll of retro wallpaper with the intention of using as a bit of a backing on Eliza's toy kitchen, which is a work in progress.

  • And this gorgeous kids book for 20 cents, it is falling apart, but I am probably only going to cut it up anyway!

I forgot to take photos of the safari beige old school telephone I grabbed too. I didn't tell the collector that I wanted to give it to my daughter as a play toy. Hehe.

UPDATE : Here is the photo of the phone -->

Phone home.
