There is very little in the way of vintage to be had. So why do I go? Well, you just never know, do you? Amongst the many piles of clothes, toys, modern china etc, there might just be a teeny weeny little something that takes my fancy. And the habit is just so hard to break.
So yesterday morning my long suffering hubby and I set off to have a look at the one and only indoor boot fair in the area. The weather was pretty bad, it had snowed, it was grey and overcast and people had obviously preferred to stay at home, in bed, or in front of a lovely warm fire, lol. The hall was only half full. We wombled about, picked up a thing or two, went to the exit, and out into............ a snow storm! Ooops. The weather had changed so dramatically in just the half hour we had been inside. Thankfully we didnt have a long drive. Oh, I do love cars with heated seats.
Do you know what? I just realised that the photos I took today are from the boot fair and jumble sale LAST weekend, lol. I haven't unpacked the bag from yesterday. Not that there is much to unpack. Ouch, old age is not much fun, rofl. Guess I'll have to do yesterday's tomorrow then.
So, here are the pics from last weekend, sigh -
60s/70s is not really my thing, but this small purple bowl is such a luscious, rich colour, I had to have it -
Modern as well, but I do love these silver plated star shaped boxes. They just need a good polish -
What a great American pack of cards! Well, the game itself it quite ordinary, but I love the back of the cards, the graphics are so funny -
A sweet little jug, a girl can never have too many little jugs/pitchers -
Oh look, lol, another little pitcher, this time an Ironstone one -
And talking of Ironstone, I also found this really pretty brown transferware Ironstone plate -
A few bits of jewellery. The pink heart necklace is a modern one, from Avon, but the rose quartz heart is so pretty, I want to use it in a fabric collage -
Pretty little rosary though -
The colour of this little vase made me go WOW! Isn't it just so pretty? -
A Sylvac vase -
A gorgeous little dressing table tray, for your rings, or change, any little bits and pieces really. They also make lovely little pen trays for your desk -
I adore this little glass jar with the silver lid, which is just crying out to be gently embellished, don't you think?
As I said before, yesterday's will (probably) show up tomorrow, lol. Until then, toodlepip xxx
