At the market

Bad news: no books. Plenty of other bargains to be had, though.
A cute little cyclamen for £1.00

A huge bag of baby knitting yarn (there’s more than this),

plus thrown in a couple of stamps for my new card making project. I am definitely not going to get hooked on it!

All the money for those to Help for Heroes.
Circular knitting needles, 50p each. You know what they cost!

Why did I buy an old chocolate box?

Because it has stamp mounts inside. Like the needles, they are usually very expensive to buy.
Even the fruit and veg was extra bargainous. Five avocados for a pound and my friendly greengrocer threw in an aubergine that happened to be lying around. Good job I like them. Came home quite pleased with my booty.

What a lovely post! I love your market purchases. The chocolate box looks like an old Black Magic one :)

I miss pottering on the market but will again once I can walk properly.
Thank you. I hadn't thought of Black Magic, but now I think you're right.

Roll on the day of comfortable walking!

What a terrific haul. More needles? :-) Rubber stamps now - that slope is getting more slippery by the minute!

Re: Market bargains

I know, I know! But I might use a pattern than needs a circular needle of a particular size ...

I'm in denial.
I love your market and car boot posts!

That tin is rather lovely.
Glad you like. Next thing you know, I'll be posting my Tesco receipts!
A very good marketing day indeed!
It was! You can't expect it every week, of course.
