Car boot sales: the fashionista’s favourite for inspiration

We know that car boot sales are brilliant for a rummage and the thrill of a special find – it’s their universal appeal, after all!

In this interview on the Laura Ashley blog, Stylist magazine’s fashion director Alexandra Fullerton shares her love for a good car boot, saying: “Entertaining is one of my favourite activities, along with gardening, baking and rooting around car boot sales to buy other people’s junk (a hobby my husband despairs of!)”

Beautiful photos accompany the piece, showing off Fullerton’s North Essex home, complete with her thrifty car boot finds on display.

Fullerton’s beautiful home is great inspiration for good buys. We reckon you could easily recreate her look by keeping an eye out at your local car boot sale for items such as quirky coat hooks, patterned glassware and printed fabrics.
