I rescued Mum's prized lambskin coat from the bin last week. My Dad chucked it away but I managed to get to it before the bin men did. Mum loved this coat. I remember being mortified when she used to turn up in it at the school gates complete with leather thigh boots and skinny jeans, wishing she was more like the other mothers in their sensible skirts and Clarks' shoes.
Over thirty years on and they're back. I can't believe the prices these vintage coats are commanding, such as here and here. I'm thinking of having it professionally cleaned and trying my luck flogging it, it could pay for my next trip to India.
Mind you, if we have a winter as cold as the last one it could be useful.
