Carbooting Weekend & Homeware Haul

Good evening beautiful, how have you had a good Monday?

I had lovely weekend, I woke up bright and early on Saturday morning to head out to my first carboot of the year. Brad and I had already pre planned to head to Clevedon first thing, for the early “Superboot” then, after, head to the Whitchurch one back in Bristol.

We got all the way down to the Clevedon for 9am to find out the superboot, that had been advertised online, wasn’t actually on at all (which turns out was noted – in the smallest font in the latest news on the website – but wasn’t very clear at all!) so instead, as it was still really early, we we walked the dogs along Clevedon promenade for a little walk.

I was really disappointed the carboot wasn’t on, I love going carbooting, it’s a nostalgic thing I think. We always used to go as kids with all the family and I love finding a good bargain. After our mini dog walk I was hankering for breakfast, we walked out the house so quickly with a plan to get a bacon butty at the carboot. So on our way back to Bristol we decided to stop at The Battleaxes for breakfast (so I could start functioning properly!) and OMG!! It was such a good breakfast. I went for the scrambled egg and smoked salmon on sour dough bread, SO SO good!! Best breakfast I have tasted in ages, and good coffee too!

Luckily, the Whitchurch carboot, back in Bristol is always on, and is quite a big one, but doesn’t start until 11am. We finally made it for some bargain hunting on a full belly and wondered around. I found a few bits but not as big a haul as i’d usually pick up. I really want to go back down to Bournemouth for a weekend to do some proper carbooting, they have the best carboots in Dorset!

I did also go to the Clifton carboot on Sunday too and got a few bits for our bedroom. Which then inspired us to get productive in the bedroom with the new #pinterestworthy headboard we had been planning, there’s a little teaser in the video below, but there will be more on that when the rooms finished for a proper room tour! Check out all the stuff I got in my video below, if you like what you see, it would be great if you could like and subscribe to keep up with future home decor! I love it!
