First - the present:
This was a gift from my friend Jen, who spotted it when thrifting and knew I would love it! I can't find one online to date it but its marked as Barratts Delphatic White Tableware, England. I'm guessing its 60s. And the best bit? Jen messaged me this week to say that she found 5 more this week when thrifting so bought them for me - yippee! :))
And on to my finds from my local charity shop:
60s mugs - 25p each. Love the colours - match our house perfectly!
Fornarina top - £2. I really like Fornarina stuff. Its like a poor man's Moschino Cheap n Chic. Both still too expensive for me, but not when you find it in the charity shop! Its a really nice shape, cut and gathered so its really flattering, the fabric is nice and thick, and with a nice embroidered bow to the chest too.
Boring but useful! Two pairs of jeans - One French Connection, one Next. The FC ones still had the tags on them! They should have been £65! I got both pairs for £2 each
And on to the purchases....
Handmade bag in cool Tiki fabric, £8.
I bought this from a girl at the Roller Derby I traded at the other week.
And a close up of the print. (Its Alexander Henry 'Tiki Lounge' if anyone is interested)
Ships wheel vest from OldSkull4Eva - an independent label that was at Kustom Klub in London.
Handpainted sugar skull - by KalaHula, also from Kustom Klub. I ♥ him!
And this weeks Ebay purchase;
Collectif Sailor Cardigan - won for £3.76! (Bad photo taken with phone, ended at a random time like 10.43am on a tuesday morning - Why do people do this?! If you take good photos, in natural light and end things at 8pm - you get far more money for them! But hey, I'm not complaining!)
And to make it even nicer.....
I added some of my own design Dolly Cool Patches to the front :))
