We went to a jumble sale on Friday afternoon. Around here it's not odd to hold a jumble sale during the day and the queue had already snaked around the block by the time the doors opened at 2pm. Being a deprived inner-city area most people are after essentials and aren't in the least bit interested in the vintage fripperies we love.
I grabbed a heap of vintage souvenir linen tea towels which we used to recover the tatty old seats on our four kitchen chairs. This Spanish lady is especially for my dear friend, Sacramento.
The Lloyd Loom "Lusty" bedside table was 20p.
An Antler suitcase, 1950's grosgrain clutch bag, suede-lined English made Leather Kelly bag and a bamboo handled bag were 20p each.
This framed watercolour reminded me of the snake charmers we saw in Djemaa El-Fna in Marrakesh when we travelled around Morocco in the early 1990's. It was 10p.
The vintage English-made velvet turban was 20p
This 1960's crimplene tunic was 20p....
The psychedelic bri-nylon pussy bow blouse and 1970's leather Okay Sac satchel were also 20p a piece.
Fab 1960's and 1970's dresses
A gents' sheepskin leather jerkin for £2 (off the nearly new rail) and a 1970's reversible wool cape for 20p.
This gorgeous 1960's Welsh tweed cape was one of Jon's finds. I've now got more capes than a super hero.
