Another day, another jumble sale.
I knew that if I waited long enough the perfect denim waistcoat would eventually turn up and here it is, snaffled for the princely sum of 30p from the kid's section. It may be an age 9/10 but it fits just fine. Lacking in the bosom department has it's advantages.
There's no time for hesitation at a jumble, dither at your peril. Sometimes the most mundane of things look surprisingly decent on so, if something catches your eye, trust your instincts and grab it. This polyester dress looked like nothing at first glance but then I spotted the green lurex trim and was pleased to discover the 1970s label once I got home.
From back in the days when Wallis was a bit more cutting edge than it is now.
This pretty hand-made crochet shawl was hidden amongst the bedding, even if you have no interest whatsoever in household linens it's best to leave no single section of the jumble ignored.
I also picked up this 1970s straw bag,
these 1960s blingy gold sandals (in my size)....
...and not two vintage candlewick bedspreads, still in the original packaging...
...but four! All in the most fabulously lurid of colours.
|1970s Wallis midi dress (40p) with denim waistcoat (30p), crochet shawl (20p), knitted bag (30p) all from today's jumble, worn with Dolcis suede platforms (seen HERE), crochet beret (from the gorgeous Elizabeth) and heaps of tribal jewellery.|
There's more but it's hanging on the line drying in the sunshine.
Hooray for a beautiful Spring day!
