Thrifty Haul August 2017

Hubby is away until after Eid, so usually visiting boot sales would have been out of the question.  But my mum and dad are planning to go Pakistan later this year, so have been visiting boot fairs at the weekend to do some their shopping.  Last weekend, they called me soon after fajr (dawn) prayer and asked me if I wanted to go with them.  I didn’t need to be asked twice.  

We ended up driving about an hour away to the Chelmsford BootFair.  This was the first time I visited this site and it turned out to be one of the best boot fairs I have been to.  We left late morning to return home laden with bargains.  I found some really nice things for next to nothing alhamdulillah.

I bought the red alphabet toy and the microphone as soon as I got there.  Both were working with batteries and cost £1 and 50p respectively.  The assortments of purses, walkie talkies and wind-up torches were all 50p each.


Most of the items in the picture below were also 50p, everyone ended up with a pair of sunglasses, I kept the pretty necklace with the crystal hearts and Little Lady has already filled the acrylic butterfly with her earrings.  The grey mirror matches her bedroom.  LL also took the tin of post its and the naughty book.  The naughty book has been a source of great hilarity.  I come home from work and every day the days misdemeanours are recorded in it much to both Darling and Baby's dismay (ok maybe Darling, Baby loves to create mischeif). Even I and my mum-in-law get a mention.


The practice books were 20p each and the watercolour pad and book were 50p.


This was my pile for myself, varying from 20p to £1. I have been interested in NLP for some time, so look forward to seeing what I can learn from this book.
