I picked up a Silver Cross pram for £2 at the car boot and spent ages restoring it – it’s good as new now

AS any car boot sale fan will know, you can pick up some incredible bargains there.

And one woman was stunned when she found a vintage Silver Cross at her local sale, for just £2.



Decided to restore this 80’s silver cross pram which was headed to the tip #silvercrosspram #vintagepram #pramrestoration #trains #rebornbaby #carboot

The seller was using the pram to hold the soft toys she had for sale, but Alison Ewer saw the potential in the classic pram and decided to take it upon herself to restore it.

"Decided to restore this 80’s silver cross pram which was headed to the tip," she wrote.

The video showed the pram with all its grime and dirt, and rusty metalwork.

But, bit by bit, Alison cleaned the pram up – washing down the material and taking off the tyres to get them looking good as new again.

Finally, she took to the metal with a cleaning paste and a toothbrush.

And the result was incredible, with the pram looking back to its former glory.

"Omg that’s absolutely amazing I love it. So you actually paid £2 for it!?" one person wrote.

To which Alison replied: "Yep, just £2! It was so disgusting I think the seller thought no one would want it but I love a challenge."
