Boot Sale Saturday!!!

For a change, the weather was gorgeous when we got up Saturday morning. So hubby and I set off for the boot sale in Chigwell Essex for a stroll and some much anticiapted bargains. I thought to take a few pictures to show you what the boot sales are like-here I am, enjoying an early morning tea and burger!!!

I'm wearing a purchase made mid week-my 'perfect' black leather jacket, that I found in Sue Ryder Charity shop for £10! I 'm so pleased with it, I will show better pictures of it later in the week!!! Anyhow, the boot sale for me was really good, I managed to get a black padded parka for winter for £5, a black boyfriend style merino wool cardigan for £3, 2 grey tops for £1 and some gorgeous biker ankle boots for £1-I'll show these later in the week too!! So, this week I've spent £20, but quite a haul of needed goodies!!


The rest of Saturday was spent relaxing and visiting my mum in hospital-she broke her ankle last week, poor thing, so I've been on hospital duty all this week. Hopefully, she can come home midweek. Its no fun for her being bedbound, but she's bearing up brilliantly. She had to have an op to put things right, so lots of rest, recuperation and patience needed!!

You always manage to find the best goodies, I can't wait to see what you got...especially the boots! I've been after some biker boots for forever, but the prices on the high street are ridiculous!
