The car boot sales in the weeks before Christmas are the time to find almost everything you need for the festive season without buying them new from a shop.
A few people might be dealers but there's bound to be some ordinary house-holders selling unwanted stuff. It's always puzzled me..........why don't they just keep it and use it - whatever IT is for this year?
But they don't and I'm glad as it gives me a chance to find things, so that I don't need to buy new.
Very wet underfoot at the local boot sale a couple of weeks ago, everyone tip-toeing through the mud and not many people selling but I did pick up these.
Why would someone have Christmas crackers and paper from Wilkinsons - all new costing £21 originally and then sell them for £2.20? No idea but they did and I benefited. The crackers have modelling balloons inside. I'll keep them in the cupboard until the grandchildren are a bit older and here for Christmas .
