We'd only just arrived at the car boot sale this morning when a trendy mother and daughter came up to me and complimented me on the way I was dressed (pretty amazing considering it was just before 9am on a Saturday morning). The teenaged daughter asked me where I bought my clothes and I told her that it was a combination of car boots, eBay, jumble sales and charity shops. They said that they loved "vintage-style clothes" but that this boot sale was "crap" and there was nothing old around.
I proceeded around the car boot sale, which admittedly was a little quiet, and still managed to find these vintage treasures without trying too hard.
This gold dralon bedroom chair (which Polly's already claimed) was £3
This 1960's fitted jacket by "Norman Linton, London W1" and the vintage silk scarf were both 50p
These boxed 1950's leather ice skates still have their guards and are my size, too.
This pretty satin evening bag was 30p
This groovy 1960's quilted jacket had never been worn by the elderly lady selling it.
This 1970's Welsh Tweed covered foot stool was £2
I love the print and colour combination on this 1960's silk scarf
This 50p carrier bag full of artificial flowers isn't vintage but will be really useful for making floral headbands for next summer's festivals.
This 1950's edition of Odham's is quite hard to come by. Not a bad find for 20p
Plenty of old stuff in my eyes. I think that lots of people don't actually know what vintage is, they just like to say they wear it because it sounds cool.
