Bootsale booty

A Theo Miles brown tweed blazer - £2
A yellow paper sun parasol - £1
A small Vogue mirror - 50p

I did yet another bootsale yesterday and managed to raise another £25. So that is £50 in our holiday spending money fund. I quite enjoy this bootsale lark!

I managed to have a little hunt around for myself and came away with some goodies! All for the pricely sum of £3.50. If anyone has any history on any of these items, please let me know!

I have no use whatsoever for the parasol as my dad very kindly pointed out when I showed him my "junk" but it looks fab in my bedroom and if we ever hit a heatwave I am well prepared!

I had seen the vogue mirrors on various blogs and did a little inward dance when I spotted this on the stall behind mine. When the lady said 50p I couldn't open my purse quick enough. The frame needs a rub down and banging together. I am going to bribe my dad with chocolate. Any idea of the date of this? I would love it if it is a good few years old!

The tweed jacket sold me with the elbow patches. I am going to wear it with jeans and roll the sleeves up. I've not have the chnace to google Theo Miles so am not sure on the brand as of yet.

One pet hate of the bootsale is, why do people come with wads of £20 notes? No I do not have change for that. Ugh.

Anyone else hit any bootsales over the weekend?
