Brighton Bootsale finds

All found at the Seven Dials Boots sale  in Brighton at the weekend.

The knife has a tiny nut and bolt, which when undone allows the top to pivot and the blade can be changed...Archie and I couldn't resist trying it at the boot sale and I dropped the tiny nut....so we spent quite a while all searching the tarmac for it...
