This is a car boot sale
























































Hi Everyone.I remembered my camera this week, this is what a car boot sale looks like, i hope it gives you an idea how it goes,people come get a car parking space,open thier car boot,have a large table for bits and bobs hanging racks for clothes and curtains etc.People sell all sorts of things chairs, tables,pine bookcases ,sideboards and even kitchen sinks .Normally its twice this size but i still managed to bag a few goodies.One lady was selling these empty picture frames for 50p i bought 3 i will have to buy some mounts and put in prints and change them with the seasons,this is a few pictures i hope to change not sure if i should paint the frames or leave well alone.The table cloth was a real find it is actually all hand applique should make a nice item for my halloween table.My friend who was with me found the cute jars with the unusual lids i thought they were sweet then i found the little cheese knives in a block and last but not least a beech plate rack.Hope you all enjoy the pictures there are lots.Take care ~Kate~

Great items! Looks like a fun day. It's kind of similar to a Flea Market here in the States...it's just people drag tables there to put everything on. Using your car trunk or bed of your truck would be a LOT simplier!

Have a great day!

I was wondering exactly what it was like! Kind of like a flea market here except you use your car! That makes sense! Thanks for telling us! You sure do find some neat things there!

Oh wow, I would have loved to been there. Is a car boot the came thing as a car trunk? You know the back door. I love your little mouse and spreading knives. So cute

I love your sale; wish I could get there to shop; LOL! I don't know if you realize it, but I have given the Arte Y Pico award to you too; you can come to my blog and right click on the picture, save it to your computer; then post it on your blog along with the link and the "story" which you can find on my blog and copy and paste to your post; then you nominate five people who you think need an award and send it to them! I know this is confusing probably; but I wanted you to know that I think you should have an award because you are great at this and provide us with a glimpse into a world we might not see otherwise. Now, me, I am still coveting that quilt in the photo of the boot sale!! Love it; Merrie

I love that beech pot rack, you did really well with the photoframes too. How unusual were those little jars with lids, not seen any of those before. Enjoy your weekend Kate. Hugs to Ellis and the dogs.

Kate,
Living in PA. I don't know of any prim places in Florida but Ann-Marie does live there so maybe you could leave a comment on her blog and maybe she could tell you of some. I don't know where in Florida she lives, she is listed in my favs 3rd up from the bottom of the list "This Simple Life".
Have a good day!

Car booting sounds fun. We have a flea market that does something like that.
