#MagpieMonday Lickle duckie...


Already on the look out for a bargain...

Car boot sales. Well what can I say - One man's trash is another man's..er..trash also. Really not a huge amount of treasure to be found at our local - and very popular - car boot sale yesterday. The glorious weather brought the punters out in droves and I bet the ice-cream man made a killing!
I did manage to pick up a couple of bargains though. £3 for a car booster seat for the little man who is rapidly out growing his infant car seat and a couple of nice plants for the garden.

And then there was this little chappy - nestled in amongst some random plates and jars...




Looking a little forlorn and unloved - although judging by the state of him he had been well loved at some point. His paint is chipped but he is smooth to touch from years of little hands pushing him across the floor.  He is obviously old (they haven't made toys like this for a long time) but there are no clues to it's history. Riley wanted him. I wanted him. The owner was happy to part with him. And the price? I hear you say.... 30p.  Yup, you read that right. 30p!!!   That was pocket money when I was a kid, you can't even buy a packet of jelly tots for that now!

Riley's happy. I'm happy. And I think Lickle Duckie is happy too :)


Why not hop along to Liz's blog and check out all the other treasures found this week...
