Beady eyed bird looking for collectables and design stuff
I’m not sure if it’s just a London thing, but every week we get a free womens magazine called Stylist, which is generally pretty good, especially since it’s free and doesn’t just concentrate on the standard, “Get ’em in” features which attract advertisers but manages to balance them with quite meaty and relevant content too.
I’ve recently signed up for their sister publication Emerald Street which sends out a daily digest of interesting info. I have to say it is sometimes scarily relevant to me and I’m not sure how they do it. But today’s email focussed on Car Boot Sales!
It’s great advice, especially along the lines of taking a wishlist. I cant count the number of times I’ve been swayed into buying something on a whim and then wondered what on earth I would do with it once I’d got it home.
You can read the email online here, they also used an Owl in one of their images – nice one!
I’ve noticed too that Time Out magazine in the last week has had an article about flea markets etc, I’m not sure if it’s coincidence, just me noticing more, or the time of year (spring cleaning, and springtime warmer weather always make me think about car boots and being outside) so I’m building up quite a list of places to visit over the next few weeks!
