Couple of car boots worth

What a strange mix of stuff I got this week, to start off,
a silver plated tea set for just £1, I don't know if I like it or not, theres a couple of sets just like it on ebay, so I don't think its very old, which is a shame,
next up is a Tiny Tears doll from the 70's, as a child I always wanted one but never got one, I'd been looking at them on ebay last week, just for reminiscings sake, so  was surprised to see one yesterday for £1. Shes had a bath and washed her hand knitted clothes, and will now become another dust catcher, lol.
I love aprons, or pinnys as we call em, so was chuffed to get this unopened Domestos apron from thier 2007 offer, bought it from my workmates who had a stall, for 50p, cheers girls !
Found this Bossons 'punjarbi' head for £1, its awful but cool
I got these 2 books for 50p each, one says first published in 1935, but the cookery one looks about 40's/50's
last of all, but my favorite is this 8 day mantle clock, for £2,  we gave it one turn of the key and it ticked for a couple of hours so will try winding it up properly, see how it goes, don't know how old it is, maybe 30's/ 40's ???

thanks for looking, have a lovely bargain filled weekend x


  1. Love the apron and clock - not so sure about the head! Books look really interesting.

  2. I always wanted a tiny tears too and never got one either! Love the apron esp :o) Scarlett x

  3. I have those books too! Love the clock but that head freaks me out!! That really is quite an ecclectic mix of carboot loot!!

  4. Tiny tears is all snug again in her hand knit clothes, I'll post a pic tomorrow.
    I forgot to put on the other stuff I got, 2 pot deer and a Dennis the menace hand puppet :)
    thanks for the messages, its brilliant to know theres other people who share the joy of weirdness :)
