I am so so pleased the weather is picking up as our local Boot-sale is up and running and getting busy again! I love nothing more than setting myself a limit (this time was £10) and heading off to see what treasures we can get! (Mostly for Rocket)
We managed to pick up an ELC toy car garage for £4! other than superficial dust and dirt that can be cleaned, its stickers were all perfect and it had all its bits, it just needed a new set of batteries and is now like a new toy! I am very pleased about this!
Rockets daddy found him an ELC toy camera, batteries working and in good condition for £1!!!! being the son of 2 photographers, that’s made our day!
We also got an In The Night Garden wooden toy clock which has the numbers and clock hands and spins round, Rocket loves this and we picked that up for a nifty £2!
Aaron picked up a couple of WORKING super 8 cameras, with original mechanical timer and remote so he is happy too!
The thing I love about Boot-sales is being able to get decent toys for Rocket (after a good wash and usually a new set of batteries) he’s able to have a variety of things that we could no way afford new and he knows no different. In fact, i’m hoping he grows to love thrifty living too and start the cycle of recycling his toys to other children before he gets new ones.
All in all a good day! Shattered now!
