Go on, have a guess. What cost me £1?
Our new rug?
Or a bottle of Cath's very own bubble bath?
Mmm, now that's a quandary isn't it? Which one could it be? Well, would you believe both?
Yes, the rug was sourced at the Saturday car boot and the Cath Kidston Bubble Bath at the Sunday car boot. It was £1 a bottle!! OK, so it is damaged stock (a little leakage) but I went through them all to find the least damaged! Yeah, that's a little something that you don't know about me, and those that do will be groaning and reliving the mortification. In shops, if there is more than one item, I will study them all to find the best. My lovely friend Justine still reminds me of the afternoon in Habitat where I got out every single, identical, plastic laundry basket to find the 'best unscratched one.' She says she'll never forget the embarrassment. Oh dear. This time with the Cath bubble bath I got them to open boxes until I found 3 that were presentable. Well, wouldn't you - my goodness you should have seen my eyes pop out when I saw them next to the butcher's van. At first I thought they were pirate copies - that someone had copied the labels - but no, the cap had Cath Kidston engraved around it, too hard to copy, so I slowly realised that they must have been damaged stock. Oh my friends, my first thought was for you all and how much some of you would have liked to be standing there with me, making a nuisance of yourself by asking ,very politely, if they would just open another of the Lemon & Geranium boxes. I would have loved to share my good fortune at finding genuine CK goodies for £1. Shame it was only bubble bath. I left with soapy hands and then tried to keep the bottles upright on the journey home in case they leaked some more. Not as easy as it seems.
What do you think of the rug? Our other one was black and I love it but it had been losing it's wool. I'm not sure about the cream - not practical but guess what, it doesn't show the cat hair!
I have decided to put my bits up for sale on Monday as we are going to Ludlow on Wednesday until Sunday. As I am doing an 'email me if you want one' sort of thing I thought it best to be at the other end of the email! So I'm sorry to drag this thing out and thank you for all your encouraging comments. Now where's that bubble bath..
