Hello stranger!

I know...I know...I've been neglecting this blog :( Recently I've been so busy, and when I'm not busy all I want to do is sit down and rest. Hopefully I'll get back into regular posting, especially now that the sun has made an appearance. Speaking of which, here are 2 buys I bought the other week from the boot sale. I'll do a bigger post of clothing etc that I've bought once everything is out the wash.

I couldn't resist buying this mirror for £2. I deliberated over buying it for ages, but if there's one thing I've learned it's that I would rather buy something for cheap and regret it (can always sell it on), than walk away and regret it, especially at boot sales where you may never see something like that item again.

I also got this pretty box for £1.20 (Very odd price). I always have lots of bits and bobs so this is good for hiding them. I'm a bit of a box hoarder as well, I have so many in all different patterns and sizes.

Recognise these little monkeys? Maybe from when you were a kid? I've recently started collecting monchhichi toys and managed to accumulate 4 in the space of 3 weeks. The total cost was only 55p. The first one cost me a mere 5p (yes that's right, 5p), from a jumble sale. I always make sure I check all tables, including the kids table as you never know what you might find. I had a grin on my face the whole day.
The second one was bought from a boot sale for 50p, it was hidden deep in a suitcase of cuddly toys. I reached in and pulled it out.
The third and fourth ones I got together for free from a lady on Facebook. I'm a member of a few groups similar to Freecycle/Freegle where you can get rid of/or claim unwanted items for free. It's a great way to 'pay it forward', and of course it brings me many gems such as these. Hopefully I can continue collecting and finding bargain Monchhichi toys.
