Car Boot Goodies



The Car Boot Sale has usually finished now but this year they are going to try and run it until Christmas. The same one is on both Saturday & Sunday, we also go to another early morning one on Sundays, but that will be stopping soon.


This weeks purchases.

An apple peeling machine, which cores, peels and slices, it says you can use it for potatoes as well.

Bought for £1.00




A carrier bag full of Card Making items £2.00





Winter Pansies £1.00 a tray

Much cheaper than buying from the garden centre.


Love these frilly ones.





A lady had a whole table full of Streptocarpus, I have never seen one before they were just beautiful. 
I chose my favourite colour purple for £4.00.




Not much but some lovely things.

  1. You will love the apple peeler. I have never used mine for potatoes but reckon you'd only be able to use it for curly fries as it gives a spiral cut, and you will be left with a core that you can boil for mash.
    Streptocarpus are very easily propagated from leaf cuttings, so if you love it you can soon have a houseful!

    1. I wasn't going to buy anymore but with all those cards and envelopes for that price it was silly not to.

  10. I've never thought to use my apple peeler for potatoes, I'll give it a go, the slices would be great for dauphinoise (I can't spell that and spell check is giving me something that looks even more ridiculous!!) :-)

    1. Yes it would it says on the back of the box suitable for potatoes, as Deborah above commented you would be left with the core but that would soon be chopped by hand in seconds, thankyou for following me, x

  11. some fabulous buys there. You have such a good eye for these things. Curious to know how good the peeler is. I remember my mum having one back in the day and it never worked that well. Knowing us, we weren't using it properly! ;o) xx

  13. More lovely bargains. I don't go to car boot sales very often but I never seem to strike lucky when I do go, you seem to manage it every week.
