Boot Sale Finds - From Art Deco to Alice Cooper
What I love about a car boot sale is the eclectic mix of goodies you come home with. I go with a mental list of things I'd love to find and come back with the total opposite.
Today's finds included a 1930's silk lined capelet, an Alice Cooper 1987 tour tee shirt, a boxed 1950's shoe stretcher and a vintage "Flying Trapeze" toy.
In less than an hour I've got something to wear tomorrow night, a Christmas present for my hard-to-please brother (a fellow collector of kitsch) and a solution to a pair of vintage shoes that are too small but far too cute to eBay. All the items pictured came to less than £6.
How could a morning on the British high street possibly compare?
