Car Boot Sale = Money Gone


Yesterday was Sunday and the weather was great (not like today...gloomy) the sun was bright and the cloud were white. I woke up early and decided to go for a scavenger hunt at the car boot sale in Stone House. At first I was thinking to go to the one in Homepark (near Plymouth Argyle FC Home Ground Stadium) but remembering that last time I went there with Ayunni the area was closed I have decided to land myself in Stone House. I waited for the bus in Derriford Hospital bus terminal feeling a little bit confused on which bus I should board on to go there. is it the 10B First Bus or the 24 City Bus what??? At the end I took the 34B First Bus huhuhu because it wrote on the front of the bus it will go to Stone House. The journey there was very long......and I almost fall asleep. To my surprise the bus stop near Home Park and I saw there were lots of cars parked at the stadium parking lotwow.

When I got to the car boot site it is open and the first thing that I noticed when I entered the main entrance was this made in China, 1.5m height, aluminum, brand new tripod.


I have been looking for a good tripod since I bought my new camera (well I haven't introduce to all of you to my new camera...need to do it later then). Of course you would like to take pictures but at the time you would like to be in it. The problem is that if you are the one who are taking the picture it will be impossible to be in it.. so there is a need for a tripod. I would like to buy one from eBay...it is cheap in eBay but the problem is you can't see the tripod first before buying it. What you have is just a picture and a description and that was not enough for me. Back to how i find this lovely and cheap tripod. The person who was selling this tripod set his car at the front of the entrance gate (very strategic place indeed) and it caught my eyes as I was entering the car boot sale site. The price was 10 pound and I tried to bargain for a lesser price. But the owner wouldn't want to lower it. Seeing that the tripod is still brand new and the owner said that he never used it before I think.... "What the heck... just 10 pound.. better take it before other people took it..." and I did bought it. I was very happy that I bought this tripod emoticon.

Then I start to move from one car to another, looking for things that might be interesting. That was when I stumble on to this lady who were selling lots of books and novels. Hehehhehe... I found a bunch of books by Sidney Sheldon YEAAAHHHHHH!!!Photobucket.... Just look at the stack of books that I managed to get.... The best part was that it only cost me 3 pound only.... Very cheap....


Now I can indulge myself in the world of suspense, thrill, and drama created by Sidney.... Thanks to my friend (Aziem).. cause she is the one who introduced to me the world of Sidney.... After buying all the stuff and roaming the whole site... I concluded my day with a nice donut.... and went to the city to buy some groceries.

The whole day was great... and it is true "ONE MAN'S RUBBISH IS ANOTHER MAN'S TREASURE" (Hope this is correct huhuh)
