Thrifty Finds

I got up nice and early this weekend to get my thrift on before the cinema and it was a glorious day! The sun was shining and, surprisingly, the car boot sale I went to wasn't as busy as it usually is on a day like this, which just means more space for me!


First up, the annuals. I don't know anyone in the UK that hasn't seen Neighbours. At school we were all infatuated with it and they even showed it in my school canteen at lunchtimes. And who doesn't remember Mrs Mangle, Bouncer and of course Scott and Charlene's wedding? Oh, the memories!

The TV Comic one is also funny, it's full of old comic strips including Bugs Bunny, Popeye, Ken Dodd's Diddymen, Doctor Who and Laurel & Hardy! (You'll find all these vintage books and more in my Whimsy shop)


 More Enid Blyton books for my collection...


 ..and more Marvel films too!


 I got all these Scarlet Spider comics for only £1. That's got to be the bargain of the day!


 I bought this bag of assorted wool for a pound too.  I've got some ideas what to do with it and I hope to get started on them soon!


I've seen these Lindt bunnies in shops at Easter for two years running and really wanted one but I couldn't justify spending £10 or whatever on one. So I had to snap him up too!


I spotted this mystery box on someone's table and had to have a peak.


Turns out it contains six really cute Win-El-Ware coasters! So I'll be keeping these for my new home!

What goodies have you found on your thrifting trips this week?  Let me know!
