I have only been once or twice this year, so was very keen to go. We ended up at Dunton Boot Fair which is enormous and also visited Barleylands Boot Fair on the way home which is smaller but my favourite for craft materials, jewellery and children's books and toys.
These are the books we bought, all of these were between 20p and 50p and the kids have been enjoying reading these.
The three fashion books were 20p each, I have bought versions of these for Little Lady before where I have found them discounted and they cost around £5 (on Amazon they cost between £5 and £11). The little knitting tool was 50p and the Star Wars Story Studio £1. I try to look for things that keep the kids busy and mean that they have to use their imagination or own initiative.
This was one of my favourite finds. The box of acrylic paints was 50p (they are £3.99 each in the shop). The lady then threw in the watercolour paints for free (the smaller tubes).
The pencils are half watercolour pencils and half regular colour pencils. I love how pristine they are. I have been wanting to try and learn some simple art with watercolour pencils (inspired by images like this).
Little Lady took some money of her own and enjoyed doing her own shopping. This was her haul (bag, fingerless gloves, purses x2, packet of silver loom bands and Jacqueline Wilkinson 2014 planner all 50p, mini Miffy stationary 20p and Tatty Teddy (her favourite) pencil case full of stationary £1). The snaps she bought for her brothers who then dropped them all over the house.
She also bought this rainbow loom band for £1 as it was a different design than she usually makes. The little rainbow crystal bracelet came with the sparkly bangle I bought for myself in the image at the bottom, both were £2 together.
The peacock feather locket is a Past Times Art Nouveau range one which was £15 in the shop and which we paid £1 for and Little Lady absolutely loves it. The ring was 50p.
It was nice to pick up some treats at bargain prices and it means that we'll all have lots to keep us busy and for us to play with.
