Car Boot Saturday At Doll Shoppe

As you all may or may not know I a becoming more and more fascinated with London fashion and trends. (I have decided at some point in my life I want to experience living there) In the US, when it comes to finding great finds a lot of people wait for weekend yard sales. This is where homeowners pretty much turn their yards into a all out flea market and allow strangers to peruse through their used and unwanted items. The saying "One man's trash is another's treasure", can be related to yard sales. These sales are usually limited to one household per sale..

Well the British do things a little different. There they pack all there items in the trunks of their cars and meet up at a designated location. Hundreds of people come to scavange out cool, handmade, new, vintage, and used... anything! I mean anything. Think of it as a mobile yard sale/ marketplace.









A few weekends ago I was contacted by a lovely doll Olivia and asked to look over some vintage items she had. She literally had a car full of  items and thought I would be interested in seeing them. Guess where I ended up? The parking of Bed, Bath, and Beyond in the trunk of this woman's car. LOL! No in no way shape or fashion was this set up like a store but I got the idea I was having my first car boot sale.... I picked out a shit load of items and made her an offer, she obliged, gave her my cash, and I packed my bounty into my car and sailed off into the sunset. Simple as that.

I learned that the trend has become so popular people have started hosting these gatherings online. Which has inspired today's post. I thought it would be cool to do the same thing with the shoppe! So, what I have decided to do tomorrow from 8am (5am pacific) and 12am (9pm pacific) to have a major sale. EVERYTHING on www.LoveDollShoppe.com will be 50% off!! Talk about a deal! All you have to do is use promo code: CARBOOT. visit www.LoveDollShoppe.com or click the pic below to be directed.



Making my dreams come true,
