Boot Sale Booty.



At this time of year, a Sunday wouldn't be a pukka Sunday without a Boot Sale or two.

Yesterday's was the turn of nearby village Prats du Périgord; a pretty little village where the stalls are mostly run by locals, and not professionals.

My haul? Just a couple of things to demonstrate my love of all things 'rustic'; an old wooden grain shovel and a 2 litre brown jug. The jug I shall use for lunchtime iced-water, and the shovel; no idea. ,

Both were bought from an old acquaintance (M César), at a combined price of €7. I nearly bought some beautiful old kitchen scales for the barn's new kitchen, but Lady M said no.

There's a much bigger sale next Sunday..... what larks!

  2. If that is a two litre jug, then yes that is a shovel and not a scoop.

    1. I measured the content this morning. It does look small in the photo; it's actually quite big.

  4. Gorgeous grain shovel. At least it can be an ornament if you have no other use for it.

  8. That brown jug reminded me that I used to have a very similar one - looks almost the same - and I have no idea what happened to it. I must hunt in a few cupboards.
    We do have grain shovels lying around but sadly they have woodworm.

  9. I like the jug very much. Good shape, attractive colour. I do so enjoy seeking treasure at boot sales, jumble sales (a dying tradition alas), thrift shops, school fêtes and the like.
