How much do I love jumble sales? More than any car boot sale, flea market or charity shop when I can find a fabulous Seventies frock like this for a piffling 20p.
Crimplene frocks rock! This was washed and ready to wear in just over an hour and no need for an iron.
|Thanks to Heather for the wooden star burst ring & stretchy wooden bracelet, Nelly for the Scrabble ring & Dee for the amber perspex cocktail ring, the Scandinavian Greek Key bangles were 1970s originals from my Mum's collection and the 1950s Siam souvenir bracelet was a Christmas present from a pal.

What else did we get?
When Jon and I go to a jumble we go our separate ways, buy independently and have a show and share session over coffee when we get home.
Jon found himself this Italian military jacket
a groovy British-made 1970s wool suit
and a groovy psychedelic deckchair to add to our collection.
He also found the Foxcroft vanity case and the Harris Tweed flat cap, I bought the 1950s woven men's brogues and the "Made in Bournemouth" floppy floral hat.
I found this 1970s Keynote swimming costume. I'm a bikini girl but this'll be cool under a high-waisted maxi skirt.
A cute 1970s knife pleated midi dress.
An insane cotton velvet and lace Flamenco dress
A Welsh Tapestry purse filled with old coins
An Exquisite Form "Festival" girdle.
A cute 1950s plastic pinny
a "The Daily Wear" housewife apron,
and these wooden deer wall plaques. Aren't they sweet?

I spent yesterday afternoon was having a huge declutter to accommodate my new finds. I can now close my wardrobe door for the first time in ages!
Hope your weekend's been wonderful.
