Bally Shoes for a Pound

There is a reason why I love Carboot sales on Saturdays or Sundays… I got a pair of brand new riding shoes for 2 pounds in North Wales.

The reason they’re so cheap is that they’ve been in the box for, I guess, at least 20 years and the leather has become rather stiff.

And this pair. Although not new, these pumps frequent the vintage stores in Shoreditch every so often for 10 pounds upwards.  I bought them for a quid.

Carboot is often filled full of shit more unworthy of shit. One needs to look  very carefully and patiently.

It’s worth it. A tenner can get you more than you can bargain for.
