I found these grey 1970's leather boots with a wooden stack heel in the PDSA for £4.99.
A pristine copy of a 1968 double LP by Pink Floyd, Beacon Centre For The Blind £1
Gripping reads, three books for a quid, again from Acorns Hospice. The Model was a huge favourite of mine back in the day.

This will be fabulous on the roof rack of the Beetle if we ever get a decent summer.
Jon found himself some indigo skinny jeans for £4.49 which he wore last night along with the vintage Oxblood brogues I got from last month's jumble sale and a 1950's Dhobi mohair and wool overcoat that once belonged to my late Grandpa.
