An impromptu night out delayed last night's blogging so I'm playing catch-up today.
It was a glorious day yesterday and given the choice of a local vintage fair or a stroll around the car boot sale I opted for the open air option. Although these fairs can be fun, for me there's nothing more satisfying than finding vintage treasures for pennies at charity shops, jumble sales and car boot sales.
"Foxcroft by Antler" vanity case with key
.......packed with vintage scarves and gloves £2.50
A festival-loving girl like me can never have too many pairs of wellies and these 1960's red ones not only fit perfectly but were only 30p
Another creepy child picture for my wall of misery, isn't she a beauty? Well worth a quid.
I loved these shoes when I first saw them in TopShop but no way was I going to spend £60, the £1 price tag was far more reasonable.
The posh elderly lady wouldn't take any less than £4 for this bugle-beaded, silk lined jacket .
I can never resist a vintage hat. A elderly gentleman was selling some of his late mother's belongings and let me have all six of these beauties for £5.
I've got a huge head and was delighted to find that they all fit me perfectly.
They shall be taking pride of place in my newly revamped glass fronted hat cabinet.
For 50p I had to snap up this pretty velvet-lined music box
Pitch perfect and complete with key.
