    Big boot fair today, only one but good stuff.

    Bought a tall wooden cat for my garden for £2.00



    Sally clocked a Mexican blanket over a cars bonnet, I know the lady sells weird, random stuff but always stiff, hardly negotiable prices.
    So took a pic, texted @CraigRK to counter offer whatever she wanted via WhatsApp, and showed her the offer.....

    She wanted £5.00 which he was happy with, but he texted back £3.00 or £4.00.

    She took £4.00 when I nagged, I know she was not overly impressed, but Craig got a cheap blanket for Ouma LiL 1947 Chevy Fleetline Aerosedan: Company... | Retro Rides



    Between us Sally and I bought quite a few bits.

    One of two of my favourite things was this riding crop, clearly old.

    Note the woodwork, it’s a spiral, cut from one piece. @50p it was a bit cheap, and clearly has age.

    Same seller sold me a beautiful military swagger stick for £1.00 covered in very fine leather I wish I knew someone who would love it as much as me.



    Not at all everything we got, but some of it.

    New IOM TT Races T-Shirt £1.00
    Two Jack Daniels T-shirts new 50p each.
    Mexican blanket £4.00
    3 rolls of wide masking tape 50p for them all.
    Riding Crop 50p
    Swagger stick £1.00
    Racing duck 20p
    London scarf £1.00
    Strawberry Glass bowls and holder 50p
    4 Guineas coasters 50p
    Dog toy dragon 50p




    And as a “special treat” because I am heading to the USA next week, took Sally to Maccy D’s for breakfast.

    Both of us on CCTV screen.




    Then back home.

    Next job, unpack and clean company car.
    Remove personal stuff from Blazer. Potential buyer Tuesday.
    Wash and hoover Prozac the Berlingo, MOT due 20 October so nice to have it clean for then.


    Best part of the weekend......?


    Public Holiday Monday.

    Bootfair follow up.


    Cat found a spot.



    I love the detail of the leather bound swagger stick.





    And the riding crop.

    50p for this work.........

    How is it done?






    @CraigRK and I took some time today to fine tune the road trip as well.

    It has taken on a whole new life and personality with 4 of us in a truck for the first half.



    New logo.

    Of course it can be improved a lot.



    And this years transport.

    Can you say Dually?

    4 metal plaques £1.00
    Coke tin 50p
    Mouse/Fairy doors 50p each
    Books 20p each
    Socks 20p
    2.3kg curry sauce paste £1.00 each

    But..........

    At £4.00 for the blanket, keeping in mind that I am in the Mid West the buzz is also from getting it cheap.
    Neither Craig nor I probably need to shop for random **** at bootfairs etc but 3 rolls of masking tape for 50 just gives one a buzz.
    It also puts a couple of quid into the chicken wings on holiday fund.

    But I totally get you.

    Sally took me to meet Uncle Bob yesterday.

    She had previously taken photos and sent them to me.....

    This time I got to go see for myself.

    Snowy the rescue curse word.



    Owl sh!t meet car in barn.



    One of soooo many tractors



    Yes, it is for sale.

    Pity it is 2200mm wide over the mudguards.... never fit down my drive.



    First find........

    Uncle Bob offered it to me for Dennis.



    And offered me this Land-rover

    But what to do with it??





    Fag break.



    Offer number two for Dennis’ gas station



    And a Dunlop puncture repair kit dispenser.



    Rover 3500 S

    He has three, this manual, the two Autos are for sale.




    More when Photophukit sorts itself out.

    Prize winner.



    What does £20.00 or $25.00 buy you at a steam and traction show?

    One large tap



    I felt pretty privileged being offered shed and barn afyer barn just look around, dig around and smell the dust and oil.

    Such a perfect counter balance to my day job in the hospitals.



    After two hours we sat down and Bob was asking me about America, American cars and tractors

    Of course told him about Andy in Oklahoma.




    Once we got home I gave Dennis’ prezzies from Uncle Bob a preliminary clean.

    Inside was mucky as a mucky thing.



    Dunlop dispenser is covered in grey primer.

    Dennis will know what to do next.



    All done.




    What a great afternoon I had.

    The hammers and dollies was a good buy. Never seen a tracked version of that model Fordson before, normally old iron wheels with lugs on or on rubber tyres.
