After a very busy and profitable day in the shop on Saturday, I was ready for a relaxed Sunday. With some local vintage shopping thrown in? Oh, go on then.
One of my favourite buildings in Sheffield, which has featured on the blog many times - Abbeydale Picture House.
I haven't been to the vintage market there for a while, so it seemed appropriate to take advantage of a sunny Sunday and have a browse.
There was an Eighties fashion show featuring Material and Uptown Girls...
and some very stylishly dressed folk who agreed to have their photos taken.
The couple on the left were lovely, friendly and funny and extremely well-dressed; the ladies on the right stood out in their colour and print.
The vintage market has grown over the years, and I am delighted to see the Picture House being used for events like this. I bumped into lots of people I knew, had a good rummage, chatted to stall holders, and a couple of hours passed very happily.
and both musical and alcoholic accompaniments.
Oh, don't try and tell me you aren't sniggering, I won't believe you.
This one's for Fi - that's you, that is!
So what did I buy?
This; it's creased because I put it on as soon as I got home, straight out of the bag. A fiver? How could I leave it behind?
1970s handmade evening dress - vintage market
Sandals - retail (sale)
1970s necklace - belonged to a friend's mum
Bangles - charity shopped
You're never less than visible in vintage black satin with metallic thread detail, so I'd better get myself over to Patti's for Visible Monday.
I bought another dress and a skirt from the same seller's £5 rail, which I'll show you in future posts.
This poor creature looked decidedly sad, unlike the perky painted foxes which have started appearing in my local area of late.
They make me smile.
So onward with another week - hope you're all doing OK, I'll be visiting soon, I promise!
