I promised to share this week's car booting bargains with you didn't I?
Here we go then...
It was a huge boot on Saturday and I was in my element as there were row upon row of traders and it took hours to walk around!! Fuelled by a half time sausage and onion bap we found that these wondrous lovelies on a stall near the end of the very last row. It's very rare that I come across Wiccan goodies at boot sales so as you can imagine I was very happy to spot the items which follow. The only annoyance was that the stallholder told me he'd had loads of very similar stuff but had sold most of it by the time we got there. Gutted!!!!
As an aside - I'm afraid I could never live in a minimalist house. I just love STUFF too much!
Moving on .... a completely rubbish and out of focus shot of a new 'green man' candle holder - although this looks shabby, it's not and is absolutely brand new and came complete with a brand new wrapped candle and packaging (it's just my rather suspect photography that's not done it justice!). This was the princely sum of £1.00!
Next and on the same stall was this gorgeous green man goblet - again just £1.00.
And this beautiful 'Book of Shadows', a resin (very heavy actually) note book bound with leather thonging, still boxed and bubble wrapped - and ideal for scribbling thoughts and pomes, ponderings and ... well.... stuff!!!
Front View -
And back view! As pretty from the back as from the front.
And yup - just £1.00!!!
The candle holder and the book of shadows are by Nemesis Now. Check out their website for lots of other examples of their wares. The odd thing is that there is a guy who sells purely new Nemesis Now products on a stall at this particular carboot sale and a couple of weeks ago Charlie bought the Salium dragon for me.
We always drool over the stuff he sells but it's a tad pricey, although he assures us that his prices are cheaper than the actual web site. Before we'd purchased Salium, neither of us had heard of the product before. We'll deffo be keeping an eye out for more of it though.
And finally - I fell in love with this candle sconce which is very similar to a Rennie Mackintosh design (which I also love). This piece is called "Crescent Moon" and was (according to the info piece on the rear of the sconce) was inspired by an early twentieth century Glasgow scuplture by Agnes Bankier Harvey. It's quite heavy but again I think it's just moulded resin - very purdy tho' and even nicer cos I'd picked it up to admire it and didn't even bother asking the price because I simply have far too many candle holders!! It was a lovely surprise when my lovely blokey presented it to me when we stopped for breakfast - he'd paid £2.00 for it which wasn't a bad price at all - but even nicer that he'd done it without me knowing!!
It's gorge innit?!! Not sure where I'm going to put it but I'm sure it'll find it's own place in our home!
Speaking of my lovely man - it's his birthday today.
(Look away now - slushy stuff follows!!)
Happy Birthday darlin' - you're the best and I love ya tons!
