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.
