CAR BOOT BONANZA



This has to be one of my best finds at the car boot.
3 large bags stuffed full of all the things I need for my embellishments.


I haven't been to the bottom of the bags yet but there is so much there.  Fairies, hearts etc.


You can keep all the fancy things in life, this is what makes me happy.


I haven't counted how many little tubs of beads there are but its LOTS, so excited.
I paid £6.50 for each bag.  Sounds a lot but anyone who buys seed beads and charms will know what a bargain this is.
1 pot of seed beads will be 99p  or more, can't wait to sort them all out. 

It was a man who sold them to me who obviously didn't have a clue.  WHOOPEEEEE.

  1. They were a bargain! I use to work in a craft shop and I can assure you five years ago little pots of beads were more than 99p.
