I had an afternoon of pottering about in town on my own on Saturday.
I did ask the girls if they wanted to come, but they turned me down. Which was fine by me.
There were two vintage fairs going on (an odd bit of planning, or lack of it) but I just had a look at one of them.
Sheffield's Town Hall and Peace Gardens looked lovely in the winter sunshine.
And the Town Hall makes a grand setting for a vintage fair.
Opened in 1897, the building has some glorious Art Noveau features.
The vintage on offer was pretty good too.
I loved those vivid 1960s macs; the yellow one had its matching hat too.
I browsed and admired, I chatted to the stall holders, I tried on a few things, and bought...
this 1970s maxi skirt...
a pretty heron pendant, and a funky 1960s barkcloth curtain.
I thought that was £16 well spent.
1970s cotton maxi skirt and pendant - vintage fair
Shirt, beret, bangles and 1970s faux fur coat - charity shopped
I have a feeling this skirt is going to become a firm favourite; it's a perfect fit, made from beautiful cotton, and the spriggy little floral print serves as a reminder that Spring is around the corner.
The tabby girls agree.
I'll be taking my blue beret over to Judith's to join February's Hat Attack.
Hope you all have a good week!
(PS. For those who asked, my Ebay seller ID is cumo2. I'd obviously make a terrible business woman since I feel so awkward about promoting my Ebay sales via the blog, but the proceeds from the items currently listed will go to St Luke's hospice, so I don't mind pushing them!)
