One of the nice things about shopping in car boot sales and charity shops is that occasionally you get a little bonus hidden inside a purchase. It's always surprising, sometimes weird and sometimes delightful. Here are the surprise findings within two purchases I made recently: a biscuit tin and an evening bag.
So, did I find old stale biscuits in the tin?
Nope, I found kitsch old Christmas cake decorations! Look at those tiny plastic deer, I love them.
What was in the bag? Old tissues?
Ta da! But what is it? My first reaction was 'it's the shell casing from a bullet! The owner of this bag probably carried a revolver in it!'. Then I thought it was probably a lipstick. But no, it is a retractable brush, probably for face powder.
Have any of you made any unexpected discoveries in your purchases recently?
