    Aye that certainly is bloody lucky!

    I might as well add to this thread a lucky turn of events that happened today also for me.
    I was talking to a guy who has an antiques shop up in the Lake District a while ago and mentioned the collectibles im into.I got a call to say the next time im up there ,he has some bits for me.
    In the area again today and phoned him for a meet and this box is what he came up with!! Its about time i had some bloody luck!

    Mind you,it cost me some of the nice 'Beswick' pourcelain cats that my great-aunt left me a few years ago.(bless her)
    I dont think she would have minded as she used to work at the local 'fuze' factory years ago.

    cheers

    waff


    I must add that all the items are completly FFE,spent primers,fuzes unscrew, etc,etc.

    Car boot sales in OZ

    You lucky Buggers the only thing I've ever found in a car boot sale here in OZ is spare tyres and jumper leads and the tyres are always flat! Keep up the good work in posting pic's of your finds And the next time I visit England I won't be going to the tourist attractions I'll be hanging out at car boot sales and local fairs.
    Regards 25thapril
