This time it was both of us who wanted to go to the big Saturday boot sale. Col wanted some wooden posts to raise the sides of the new raspberry bed. There's always a man there with a trailer load of cheap wood and trellising, and I just wanted to spot possible bargains.
My finds this week were 6 small storage jars, some birthday candles shaped as cupcakes, a little glass lantern that holds a nightlight candle, a dolls buggy for Florence ready for when she's walking properly and a bell with a wintery picture ready for the winter mantle-piece (after Christmas). I also got a couple of small trailing ivy plants for planting in the pots on my shabby-chic ladder ........................so it was a big spend day......... totaling £9.50.......... the jars were new and 75p each and the lady wouldn't drop the price - meany!.................although goodness knows why I'm moaning as they are over £2 each from a shop. 😊
Col got the wood posts and has added them to the edges of the new raspberry bed so it can hold a bit more soil and compost and to stop the grass creeping in over the top. I'll be ordering some raspberry canes soon. Summer fruiting for this bed and then autumn fruiting for half of the old fruit bed when it's cleared and after the tree people have been and cut down the overhanging Ash branches........this week we hope.
