Thrifty Finds from the Weekend

Photobucket
Last Saturday night I won the lottery. Don't get excited, only £10. As any kind of winnings or gifts burn a hole in my pocket, I wondered how best to spend it. £10 doesn't really go very far. My local car boot was a good place to bag some bargains and this is what I found, with some money still left over...

Photobucket
Carousel: £2
Set of 3 fawns: £2
Cream trinket box: £1 (bought the day before)
Mad March Hare from Alice in Wonderland: 20p
Miniature tea-cup & saucer: 20p
