Find of the month - Original 50s footstool, just £4 (about $6.50) from the antiques centre.
It was shoved in the corner, covered in dust, dirt and cobwebs. The seller obviously bought some things as a job lot and this was in there and they want to just get rid of it! £4!! All it took was a good scrub with some hot soapy water, and a toothbrush and it has come up brilliantly!
Also from the antiques centre, picked up these vintage leaf glasses for just 20p (about 45c) each. Bargain, and jsut goes to show that antiques centres ARE worth a look round as there are bargains to be had! Yes a lot of things are expensive and possibly overpriced, but you can still get some gems if you look hard enough!
More vintage glasses, this time from the heart foundation - £1.49 for the pair
And these fruity beauties were 25p each from the hospice shop!
Fab clothing find! I hardly ever find anything vintage that I like, that is my style so I was thrilled to see this 60's knit dress for £5.99 in the PDSA shop. A quick wash and dry later, and on it went with my trusty bow belt - its a black and grey checkerboard knit dress - perfect for winter!
A few days after I got my dress, it was time for the annual local beer festival, so it had its first outing for probably many years! Its very comfy, and just the right length, so I can see its going to be a staple in my wardrobe. Here I am with my friend Jo - CHEERS!
