With folks desperate to buy and sell in the fresh air again we went to our first Tuesday car boot sale today.
Besides a few baby clothes and kids books we got a chicken egg rolling game and a Play-doh launching game for Junior. To keep my need for cheapo plastic satisfied I got the following bunch of goodies or tat depending on how you see it! All very cheap!
The big vehicle is a 1978 Fisher Price Fire Engine. £2. Incomplete but I'll enjoy cleaning it up. I found the little Marx TV and the unidentified milk crates in our CD case so I chucked them in the photo for good measure!
The four figures are left to right: unknown Hanna Barbera ghost, 1988 Britains jousting horse, cheapo Tarzan figure [a bit of a blog legend] and a 1983 ROTJ Rebel Commando who refuses to stand up. £1 the 4.
Quick mention of the Marx TV, which I may have done before. The colour pic of a young girl has come away inside, which is a shame. Dated 1964.
As always we reluctantly said no to some larger more expensive items, notable of which were more or less the same as these examples I found online:
Fisher Price Little People A Frame House, £10 - not as complete.
Sunrise Portable Organ. £5.
Little Miss China Tea Set. £5.
and the Matchbox Goods Yard playset, loose. £5 - may not have complete.
There was also a real Walker and Hill tea pot similar to but not the same as the one Lady Penelope uses in Thunderbirds, which I've blogged before.
What do you think?
