Carboot sales can be hit and miss, to say the least. Not that I go very often – I’m certainly no bootsale buccaneer, sailing the seas of junk. Every now and again, I pay a visit and keep my fingers crossed for a bargain.
So I was stoked to find something amazing on a recent excursion – something I’ve wanted for nearly forty years.
If you’ve read my previous post about my Smurf figurine collection, you will know that I’ve always wanted a Smurf house as well. I’ve always had a dream of having a tiny Smurf village full of the little blue fellas.
And what do you know? I found this house at a carboot sale recently, complete with seven figures, for a tenner. I didn’t even haggle (not my strongest skill, anyway) – I just parted with the cash and embraced a lifelong ambition – to own a Smurf house.
Now bearing in mind that these houses are currently going for over £30 on Amazon, I think I got a good deal. I could’ve been charged 50p for each Smurf (at least), never mind the house. So I think this is a real bargain.
After all these years, I am finally the proud owner of my very own Smurf house, and I am very happy indeed. This is, without doubt, the greatest carboot sale find ever.
