On the weekend there was a car boot sale her in Vällingby. About 100 sellers with their cars gathered on one of the parking lots. Anne, Sanna, Sebastian and I met up to check it and the local charity shop out. There wasn’t a whole lot that caught my eye. I did see stuff I liked but I so didn’t need any of it. I do however need another lamp and when Anne decided the one above wasn’t for her I snatched it up. After re-wiring it it’ll probably go on my bedroom nook window sill. With a different shade though.
My best loot of the day were these though. They are the same handles that I have on two of the doors in my house and the same ones I paid a fortune for at Byggfabriken and blogged about here when I installed them at the old house. At Byggfabriken they were 490 SEK (USD 70) per pair and I paid 50 SEK (USD 7) per pair at the car boot sale. Amazing huh?! I think I will probably sand and oil them instead of keeping the varnished though. Such a great find!
I love finding stuff I actually need when thrifting as more often than not I buy cute and fun stuff only to return it as a donation to the same store later on because I didn’t get any use out of it. How about you, are you car booters or flea marketers? Any great recent finds?
