We did two carboots at the weekend, a smaller one Saturday and a huge one on Sunday. Altogether dad made £26 on old PS2 games and mum and I made somewhere between £70 and £90 but it cost £10 to get a plot Saturday and £12 Sunday and I can't remember which amount it was after deducting those!

I sold the multi-coloured plectrum earrings with the guitars on Saturday and actually converted them into keyrings for the woman (getting to keep my packaging and earring hooks which was a bonus!), which cost her £3.50.

Sunday I sold a bracelet like the above ones but with miniature handmade chocolates on it for £4.50 to a pre-teen girl, a Lego bag charm to a teen girl for £2.50, and a pair of doughnut earrings I never got a chance to take a picture of either for £2.50 to a girl probably around my age. So I made £13! :D

Today in a little while I will be visiting the Range to stock up on more Fimo and browse and possibly see if they still have any John Howe books because I like his artwork a lot and a quick flick through the book caused me to chance upon a FitzChivalry portrait never before seen XD

Love carboots. Today I spent £2.00. And I got:

- Terry Prachett, The Colour of Magic [50p] (Usually TP books are £2 EACH on every stall and since I can only remember trying to read a couple of his books at about age 11 and not being able to get into them, I won't risk that much per book).

- Ship of Destiny, Robin Hobb [50p] HARDBACK, brand spanking new. And yes I already own it, but I'm getting a double of everything because they're all prtty worn out. And well, some are paperback, some are large paperback and some are hardback and it's annoying because I can't put them all in order that way.

- Pan's Labyrinth DVD [£1.00] Looks like if it's been watched it was only once; all the advertising junk you get inside the box is still there. ONE POUND. I am so glad I followed my instincts and went back to that stall to ask. It'd cost me £15 on the internet new ;)


So, a productive day :D And I think I'm going to start keeping note of the books I've read coz I usually do over the course of the year and haven't this year. But I can start from September onwards? :)
