Hey everyone, how’s it going?
Just a short, fun post to fill the slot where there are 5 Tuesdays in a month!
In the UK we have something called ‘Car Boot’ Markets. I’m not sure if these exist in America, so for context, car boot markets often take place in open fields or large outdoor areas. People pay to have a stall, and there are trade stalls, selling cakes, meat, and jewellery, alongside stalls selling all the stuff people no longer want. I guess it’s like one giant yard sale!
The beauty of it is there’s different stuff every week, and you never know what you might find. Anyway, one persons junk is another’s treasure, and I love wandering around looking for things that’ll fit into my eclectic collection of figures, books and other stuff!
My first find was an awesome pirate ship model. I have a huge thing for pirates, from Treasure Island/Treasure Planet, to Ladies Guide to Petticoats and Piracy, to Lost Isle, to, well, pretty much anything involving pirates catches my attention!
I adore collecting anything to do with my absolute favourite interests, and now my pirate ship sits on a shelf in my writing den. It only cost me £2.50 too 🙂 Since buying it, I’ve seen lots of bigger models at the same boot sale, but sadly I don’t have room for them all!
My second find was an epic 8bit Demogorgon Pop Vinyl. For those of you who are new, I love Stranger Things, in particular Steve Harrington and the Demogorgon, who I main in Dead by Daylight.
My Demogorgon now stands next to my Steve with a baseball bat Pop Vinyl. The coolest thing was, he only cost £7, and when I looked on eBay the only ones sold are kinda expensive and from America!
Thanks for Reading!
That’s all from my awesome car boot finds this month. I might do further posts like this in future, and maybe even post sneak peeks on Instagram 🙂
