|1960's Crimplene Dress (20p) and Vintage net gloves (20p)
It's a busy day for us, not only did we go car booting this morning but there's also two jumble sales on. I'm between jumbles at the moment, so I thought you might like to see the dress I picked up from "The Twenty-Pence Man" this morning.
|The sign that brings cheer to my life
Yes, there really is a 20p stall at my favourite car boot sale. You name it, Paul's got it, everything from vintage footwear, best selling novels, curtains, handbags, straw donkeys, china tea sets and CDs. He's always got at least two racks jam-packed with all manner of weird and wonderful clothing from Escada to Asda.
When I caught sight of the typically 1960's daisy chain braided sleeve poking out of the dross I almost shoulder-charged a granny to the floor in my eagerness to get at it. After years spent in the catering industry I'm not really a fan of black and white but perfect fit swayed me. Being glorious crimplene it was dry within an hour of washing it, too.
Needless to say the lounge is looking a bit like a jumble sale with my heaps of purchases scattered everywhere and there's still another one to go.
Wish me luck, doing battle with the hardcore jumble saleing grannies of Tipton isn't for the faint-hearted.
