Instead of going to an audition in London today, I did a car-boot sale (okay, it seems like a silly decision, but very logical in the long run, as I can do the audition again in January when I have more time for rehearsals and I am not met with the frantic sorting needed for the start of university). Anyway, back to the car-boot sale, after arriving at 8am, having got up at 6am (!!!!) we pitched our stand and unloaded all the merchandise, (I use that term very lightly), we had. Of course we managed to get the worst spot on the whole area, but what of it, we worked with it. . . but not so well with the people! Really, is £2 too expensive for a hardback book, a really pretty boxed ring and £1 for DVDs/PS2 games? No, I didn't think so, but 'these' people seemed to think it was. It was going well to say the least, but things picked up (somewhat) and we managed to make more money than our rival stall, much to his dismay, with us being car-booting virgins and him an avid weekly goer! Three and a half hours later we shut shop, as that everyone else had shut theirs and totalled our profits . . . hmm, well PROFITS, not really, but Milly made £9.50 after the deduction of sellers costs and buying a ring and I made £13.50 (after tax).
This is what i'm wearing today:
Very very casual today, but I had to be comfortable whilst grafting!
Knitted top: Jane Norman (a surprise considering I never shop there)
Jeggings: River island
Worn with Ugg boots and a green jacket from H&M.
