Hartford Boot



Just back from the sunny Hartford boot sale which was very busy and full of interesting and cheap stuff. Archie didnt want to go so we left him a slumbering. He asked us to get some Lego base boards for him as he's got back into making things again and he gave all his lego boards away - silly boy. We didnt find any but he seemed happy with the Dinky dustcart Hazel found and the DVD of Unfortinate Events with Jim Carey with a big rubbery nose. Other DVD's included Monty Python's Holy Grail with extra disc of out-takes, making of etc. and Fargo ( Coen Brothers ). Also on a brotherly theme, a CD of the Best of Sparks.

Hazel got a good haul of metal doodads and thingamys including some curious fishing tackle and pins with leafy end bits - all on card. Alos a Katita automata jumping insect clockwork thingy for 20p. Her other stuff included a nest of padlocks, Ikea frames in their wrappers ( great for postcards in the loo ) and some coloured pencil lead re-fills in a metal case. All will eventually be displayed on A 1 Scrap Metal I should'nt wonder.

She's gone off again with her Mum and sister for another rummage.

I thought your loo needed some artwork... or a magazine rack, given the time I spent there last visit..

HoHo! Yes, the bathroom has it's own curious diversions- namely the chinese water torture from several drippy pipes and taps and gurgling cisterns!
