The Classic Car Boot Sale
On Sunday I took my mum to The Classic Car Boot Sale on the Southbank for Mother's Day, since she loves vintage things. Despite the rain, we had a lovely time and I took lots of photos :) Here are some of my favourites... Some very cool bikes.
An old milk float turned into a stall.
Browsing the vinyl.
Ladybird books made into notebooks. Not sure I approve of this. *Frowny face*
Various soggy knick-knacks.
Chemist pots. I would love to have bought one of these, but I don't think my tiny flat needs any more things to clutter up my already full shelves.
More chemist pots and bottles.
Victorian inkwells. I would love a few of these too, but I know they would just sit and get dusty. Maybe next year I'll have a use for one :)
Some Raleigh Choppers. My mum had one exactly like the brown one on the left when she was little.
There were also loads of classic cars about. I don't know much about cars, but some of them looked very cool with all the bits and bobs scattered around them.
What's a vintage car boot sale without flowery teacups?
Old-fashioned greetings cards.
A very cool baby pink Chevrolet. This car was so long, it was ridiculous. Probably almost the length of two small cars.
Decapitated Barbie jewellery. Best use for them really.
Toy dinosaur necklaces from the same stall. The baby hand collar necklace at the bottom is probably one of the creepiest things I've ever seen.
Glittery shoes and a sewing machine.
And finally, my favourite photo from the day:
I hope we can make it back next year when the weather might be a bit nicer!
