Originally uploaded by a1scrapmetal
Not that many rich pickings from the boot sales lately. But I did find this old tin for 10 pence at the Verdin Park boot sale last Sunday.
It was in a box full of old boxes (mostly empty).
This one conatined
broken button hook
bent safety pin
two misc bolts
bit of broken penknife
broken crochet hook
2 hooks (one from a watchchain)
Misc thing.
All had been kept in a
"cool & fragrant" Coral Flake tin
W.T.DAVIES & SONS, CHESTER.
Its amazing what people keep...(and buy!)

This one was obviously just waiting for you to come along and buy it - who else would find room for such rusty tat!
