My DH is so jammy sometimes! We are always going to car boots and he comes home with total junk and dumps it where he sits and I go mad! :mad:

A few weeks ago he bought a machine and it was ugly and old, when we got home I ask him what it was for and he said he was going to sell it on ebay :laugh: yeah right!

He paid £3 for it ($4.77 US) - he has just sold it on ebay for £195 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ($310 US) ~ I still don't know what it was (apart from JUNK! LOL) He does stuff like this ALL the time!!!

Anyway last week I went to the car boot with my Mum and I said 'I'm going to buy a box of rubber stamps' LOL ~ She was teasing me saying 'oh haven't you got them yet?' and I said 'No they are saving them for the last stall, so I don't have to carry them round with me' ;)

This week on the way to the car boot with DH, I said 'I NEED rubber stamps for my card making, so can you get me a box of them? And don't come home until you have them LOL'

He did !!!!!! £20 the lot ($31 US) ~ What can you say? :eek: LMAO!

I'm so gob smacked! LOL ~ VERY happy though.

THANK YOU PAUL ! :hug2: ~ Oh and lots of them are huge and have NEVER been used!

Wow, what a great deal! Looks like you are going to be busy (or should I say busier ;) ) What a nice DH!!! He should get brownie points for that!!

It is amazing what sells on Ebay isn't it, something we may think is junk is someone else's treasure!:smball:

Gob smacked~~My neighbour says that all the time!! She is from Jersey!! Love her accent when she says it! I'll have to tell her I heard it again!!:D

Wonderful Bev!!! I love all your stamps! What a great deal! And also great deal on selling that ebay item!!! Yay!

Isn't a "car boot" sale like a flea market? where people gather together to sell their items from the back of their cars or tables set up?

Anyhow, love all you new stamps! great deal! and I can't wait to see how you use them!

Amy ~ you can borrow my DH as long as it's for long periods LOL, he IS a good bargain hunter and very generous too but he makes enough mess on his own for all my kids put together it drives me :furious:

Now I thought I knew what you called a car boot but now even I'm confused LOL. We have garage sales which I assumed were your yard sales ~ where ONE person sorts out their things and sells from their own house/garage/garden.

Flee markets here are bric-a-brac sales, antiques & collectables surposedly but you can get away with just 'good junk' which you couldn't take to a 'proper' antique market.

Car boots are like a small ebay but no bidding LOL ~ You sort out everything you don't want, clothes, books, STUFF lol and take it to a pre-organised place usually a field or school playground and set up a paste table or similar and sell. Everybody knows where it is as they are regular and advertised in the local paper.

Sorry I rambled but I was going to say yes like a yard sale but now they sound more like a flee market LOL - next time I go I'll take a pic and show ya! ;)

Sorry flee markets also are normally indoors and car boots are always outside and a car boot is more than one person (hopefully lol)
