Today's the day for the weekly town centre flea market. The BBC weather woman caught me out by forecasting a dry but bitterly cold morning and by the time I'd reached the town I was soaking wet from the hailstorm and overheating from the brisk walk.
Never fear, a damp morning means the traders are desperate to off-load their goods and leave early, which means bargains for savvy shoppers.
Vintage faux fur cloche hat with grosgrain ribbon trim.
1960's K Diablo court shoes, 1970's patchwork ankle boots, Vintage craft book with some groovy, typically 1970's projects including guitar straps, head bands and fringed ethnic-style bags, a Welsh tweed glasses case and some fabulous reading glasses.
I've needed reading glasses for a while and haven't found the perfect pair, until now. These 1950's Mafline beauties were 20p and I love them. They'll be sent to the opticians to have the correct prescription lenses added which will cost £20.
A selection of 1970's dagger collar blouses. These are getting increasingly rarer and I was so excited to find three of them. Perfect with vintage flares and my beautiful Swedish Hasbeens I exchanged my insane nautical platforms for with the divine Sarah.
I made this frock from a 1950's peacock green jumble sale curtain and used a favourite shift dress as a template.
