Went the day well....
This morning Laurel and I decided to visit our local boot sale as the season is drawing to a close. This year has been quite modest in terms of acquisitions - at least it has been for me, Laurel and Holly always seem to have bags full of stuff to bring home - aside from a couple of books and some trees a short while ago.
Today though, more than made up for it!
The box was battered beyond saving and the polystyrene packaging was haemorrhaging bits everywhere in the house but the contents are absolutely pristine - not bad for £5!
All hardback and all in pristine condition. The Overy title I acquired simply because it is better condition than the version I own (which is now going spare should anyone be interested) and the Storm from the East brings back fond memories of watching and enjoying the BBC series. The three above cost me £2.50 in total!
Needless to say I was really pleased with the North African village as it will be ideal for a whole range of projects beginning with the French Foreign Legion and also serving during the Great War and WW2 for Tunisia.
Anyone Beevor’s Stalingrad is a book I have read before but have not gotten around to acquiring a copy. The Russian Campaign is one of those things i will get around to tackling at some point - all the games of Panzerblitz and Squad Leader: Cross of Iron have certainly left their mark!
I have had a hankering for a Mongol Army for ages but have never really done anything about it. It may see the light of day at some point especially for something like Lion Rampant.
I feel rather pleased with myself and for only £7.50 the above represent a pretty fair return on the day out!
