What a glorious day for a car boot sale! The sun was shining and people were happy.
‘Eats, Shites and Leaves’ Book: 50p
Already an owner of Eats, Shoots and Leaves, Ted has found its partner. This interesting book is full of amazing facts and is in excellent condition, and no doubt will become a collector’s item in years to come.
K’Nex ‘Pirate Ship Park’: £3
Yes, Ted has made yet another purchase of K’Nex, this time a boxed themed set. It will be used as a resource rather than for its intended purpose.
Large Box of K’Nex: £3
The box may be one of the largest K’Nex ones, but unfortunately it was not full to the brim. However, it was a worthwhile purchase and, for a change, didn’t have any Lego pieces in it.
‘Mighty Metro’ Scalextric: £20
Ted felt that he had paid too much for this. His wife asked him to try to find one, and as soon as he had arrived at the car boot sale he spotted it. Oh, what synchronicity! The nice man wanted £25 for it, but Ted offered £20. The man’s wife muttered £22, but was ignored. The nice man settled for £20 and assured Ted that it was complete and in working order.
Shortly after the purchase, Ted saw at least two others for sale, albeit with different themes, but didn’t have the courage to ask how much they were.
Small Box of K’Nex: £4
The box may be one of the smaller ones, but it was stuffed full of K’Nex.
Two Metal Letters: £3
Never again will Ted come across something like this. Each letter is made of solid metal (probably aluminium) and is beautifully formed. There are no fixing holes or brackets or anything on them, and Ted believes that they must have been intended as paperweights.
If Ted ever comes across a Mr. Zg, a profitable resale is highly likely.
Very Small Box of K’Nex: £1
This was hardly worth buying in view of the paucity of the contents, but there we are.
