Boot Sale fun on a Sunday

I am a huge lover of markets and boot sales, I haven't been to a boot sale for years I think the last time I went to one was when I was re decorating my bedroom before I went to university.

I decided to head to a huge bootsale at the MK Bowl today, there are so many stalls and so many people. I wasn't on the hunt for anything specifically just things I could use for crafting or things I could craft onto. i ended up laden with bags with all sorts of different things which I have lots of crafty ideas for.  I enjoyed bargaining for the best deals and just having a mooch at what people were selling definitely a great way to spend a Sunday morning.

One of my favorite buys was this amazing vintage suitcase, I am not sure exactly how old it is but I loved it as soon as I saw it, I assumed it would be very expensive but when I asked the stall holder he said it was only £4 I snapped it up.

I plan to use old atlas pages to decorate it and am going to use it to store my holiday snaps and memorabilia I am a hoarder of all things travel related I have tickets, maps, leaflets and postcards from all over the world everywhere I go I collect stuff and this suitcase seems like the perfect way to make a feature of this collection.
