Thanks for that - very reassuring! I keep looking at Jim's amazing finds, thinking 'bootfairs can't all be like that' - so it's nice to be told that mostly. I'm right. (The only ones I have been too were mostly kids' clothes and the sort of junk charity shops throw away.)

I think I will carry on having a lie-in at the weekend!

I was at work this morning, but my son and wife went to the local boot fair in Doncaster, son bought me a set of five bowls [4 x ~125mm dia, 1 x ~100mm dia] as an early father's day present :)
Boot fairs are too bloody early for me to ever attend, bargains by proxy suits me more.

Spock was only half Vulcan, keep up Adidat :lol:

I've yet to investigate the balls, hopefully they'll be LV, I thought I might turn a box and a couple of small bowls.
