Well, if we are starting the year as we mean to go on, I'm in for a busy time in 2015.
And I will be wearing a lot of green.
I enjoyed my day at the new charity shop on Tuesday - not quite as much as being in my shop, but it was fine.
And because it would be rude not to make a purchase, I bought this;
a 1960s metal waste bin, thereby ensuring that I continue to amuse my fellow volunteers with my apparently odd tastes.
1950s wool jacket - charity shopped
Dress - made by me from a 1950s curtain and a 1960s pattern
1950s carpet bag - flea market
Boots - retail (sale)
Scarf - hand-me-down
Gloves - gift
(I've lost one of those purple leather gloves today, and I'm really cross with myself.)
1970s dress - vintage kilo sale
1960s vinyl/tapestry bag, 1920-30s brooch, coat, cardigan and scarf - charity shopped
Yesterday proved another vintage-filled day at St Luke's.
I put a lot of stock out in the shop, but cherry-picked a few items to put on Ebay, where I think I can get more money for them.
Top line - 1960s .
Bottom line - 1970s.
The 1970s DL Barron circle print dress with matching tie top is a keeper, but the rest are up for grabs. I would have adored to keep the 1960s Welsh tapestry coat, but sadly it's too small for me.
(As always, email me or mention in your comment if you're interested in any item.)
Favourite label of the day?
Well, this one made me chuckle...
but this label transported me back to my childhood in an instant.
I'm sure other UK readers of a certain age will remember the Ladybird brand, sold in independent shops and in branches of Woolworths. I had some lovely Ladybird dresses in the late 1960s/early 1970s.
A 1950-60s Ladybird wool cot blanket.
The cats will love it - throw a blanket over my knee, and this is the result;
a lap full of tabbies.
But the funniest label of all was definitely this one;
hmm, I might like to recommend this for a few folk in my acquaintance...
But I couldn't possibly name names!
