Car boots have been a big part of my growing up, many a Sunday morning walking around a normally muddy field or school playground looking at the carboot stalls mom and dad buying the most random of objects, Mom collected elephants for a LONG time, shes not gone of this, but my Dad collects anything with a horse on it and also candle sticks!!!
Many of my clothes as a child and teen were from car boots and i have zero problem with it! Why not, pair of jeans 50p? yes please!
This weekend mom and dad have been to there caravan for the 1st time in a while and they went car booting, mom came back with these little jems of items for Harry.
4 pairs of shoes
|sorry didn't realize it was blurred :(|
2 pair of clarks stomposaurus shoes £1.50 each (still available in-store for £32!!)
1 pair of brand new velcro fasten pumps originally from sainsburys £1.50
1 pair of skecher trainers with flashing traffic lights (bigger size but will keep for when they fit) £2.00 (have seen these online for between £20 and £40!!)
What a bargain!! I have no problem buying 2nd hand for Harry, as long as the condition is good and they get a wash and wipe over when we get them home, i think its fine :)
Now, what did i say a few post ago?? no more toys for harry for a while, well turns out a while was in fact 3 days in my mom&dads eyes!
They got him a bob the builder phone £1.50 and pencil case 50p
and this bargain:-
|bob fancied a ride!|
Thomas the tank bubble machines, not only does it blow bubbles but it moves along the floor and plays the Thomas theme tune, when looking online at this, its still available for £59.99!!!! What did they pay? £1 how could they not buy it as they put it. So they're let of the hook, i agree, how could they walk away from that bargain!!
Harry's loving all his new 'shooooeess' and keeps trying them all on and hes especially loving his new Thomas and Bob toys.
I thought id just throw this into the mix too, its sort of cheating as it wasn't 2nd hand but it was a bargain from IKEA £9.99 reduced from £45!! perfect for our bedroom colour scheme (which has changed since my last post about it, its now black and greys and red!) so this fits perfectly!
Would you buy 2nd hand for your kids?
