I managed to convince A to get out of bed early this morning to go to the car boot before work. There were a few less stalls today because the ground was wet and this site is prone to the most enormous puddles. It was still busy, but I didn't get much.

I also got this 1980s Rainbow Brite Jigsaw which I will probably sell, unless my sister snaffles it. I actually did this before to check it was complete.
Aaand I got this:
|1970s Dressmaking Encyclopedia - 50p|
You've probably seen this book around - it must have been quite popular as I've seen a few copies before myself. I've also got the Golden Hands Handicrafts Book, which I mentioned here. I actually bought this to sell as I was convinced I already had it, but I don't, so I'm keeping it.
Here are some fabulous pictures from the book:
|I love these kids' coats (made from real Muppet Skin)|
|This dress is amazing, but I'm not convinced on the collar. Also the cape/dress in the background is fantastic!|
|Love this and I really want a quilted circle skirt for winter|
|Such a campy photo!|
Hope you've had some good finds this weekend, or good luck for tomorrow if you're car-booting on the Bank Holiday. Normally on a Bank Holiday Monday I'd be off to the Frodsham Car Boots, but I have to work - boo!
