Treasure hunting at the Capital Car Boot

If you read my weekend post yesterday, you’ll know I had rather a lot of fun finding treasures at the Capital Car Boot on Sunday. I’ve only recently heard about it, and rather sadly this Sunday was probably the only chance I’ll get to go….although who knows!

The car boot is on every Sunday in Pimlico, come rain or shine! It’s really an awful lot better than the other car boots in London I’ve been to….it has lots of variety, but only ‘proper’ car boot stalls (no dodgy dealers!). Most of the sale happens in the car park of the venue, with lots of the sellers literally selling out of their car boots…..there are some other sellers inside, as well as refreshments available.

We had a great time there….well over an hour in fact….and it’s a nice area to potter around in afterwards, with the Tate Britain nearby, as well as some lovely pubs about. I’d definitely recommend it to the intrepid treasure hunters, who like me, enjoy a good snoop about a bunch of random stuff….and I’m sure even the die-hard car-booters enjoy a good barter and bargaining there!

I snapped up a whole load of treasures, all at a bargainous price….and I thought I’d share with you here!……

Pillow cases in a lovely Toile Pattern…..

…..and matching duvet cover for one of our new spare rooms

Super cute tortoise sweater

Amazing Gentleman’s travel set

A whole load of treasure I found in a big heap of random stuff on a gingham cloth!……

…..including a lovely string of pearls……

….a Snow White charm…..

…..some tiny wooden skull beads…..

…..a tiny wooden die…..

…..a pretty pearly jewel…..

….a little secret treasure keeper charm…..

…..all wrapped up in a little Woods Ware ‘Beryl’ sugar bowl!

It’s worth following Capital Car Boot on Twitter and/or Facebook, as they give passwords to gain free entry with each week!

Happy treasure hunting!
