Boot Fair Bargains

We visited friends in Oxford at the weekend. We spent Saturday afternoon walking around the shops in the sunshine, then had cocktails, followed by a tasty meal at the Jam Factory, finished off with some ice cream at G&D's Cafe.

We got up relatively early on Sunday morning to visit the boot fair that is only a few minutes walk from their house. This was my first boot fair of 2010, hopefully the first of many!

I bought two Pyrex dishes, a large casserole dish and a serving dish, they are the same pattern but in different colourways. I love Pyrex as it can go in the microwave, oven and dishwasher.

I got a few crafty bits too, and old needlecraft book, a jar of buttons and a fantastic 1950/60s dress pattern, that looks easy to make.

I think I did quite well, and was very pleased with my purchases for a total price of only £4.50. I haven't emptied our the jar of buttons yet, I am saving that up for next weekend, hopefully there are lots of lovely ones in there, if not I am sure I will be able to use them somehow.

We spent the rest of Sunday playing Settlers of Catan, which was great fun, before returning home and having Cartmel sticky toffee pudding and custard for our dinner.
