Who doesn’t love a good early morning rise on a Sunday to peruse other peoples flea bitten furniture, videos and cassettes made for discontinued technology, cracked pottery, old fashioned and slightly creepy ornaments, ripped books, old rags, dirty bric a brac and generally useless and rather obsolete items?
As foolhardy as a boot fair expedition sounds, it is actually a rather entertaining venture, and last weekend we had a good nose around the objects people were flogging and found a few gems.
We were particularly enticed by the Vintage Punchbowl, and while it would make a rather stunning Penthouse centre piece, £20.00 (although still a bargain) would rob us of food, and indeed any drink to put in the punchbowl for at least a fortnight. So, sadly rationality won over indulgent junk-splurging on this one.
