I love car boot sales. They are such a refreshing change from the monotonous dull grey tedium of the shopping centres. Saying that, they are slowly becoming full up with cheap badly made cast offs from Primark and George at Asda which I find thoroughly depressing and symbolic of the throwaway culture we now live in.

My strategy at the car boot is to go for stalls that are run by old people, they always have more interesting and often vintage items for sale. I find it rather amusing how random and bizarre some of the objects are, things just aren’t made the same now, it’s all about cheap plastic repetitiveness, that makes me sad.

Here is a collection of some of the random items I found at Mytchett car boot sale on the weekend. I did end up purchasing 2 of them, I wonder if anyone can guess which ones?!
