Went to a car boot sale and a jumble sale!
Managed to find some cool stuff, I won't post all of it
though, too many pictures.
My favorite find must be the polka dot bathing suit,
I'm gonna use it as a top, perfect with a little sailor hat.
And I found a hideous vintage dress that has the exact
fabric that I've been looking for!
I'm gonna turn the dress into 1950's style pirate pants,
like the curvy blond chick in Grease 2 wearing while
bowling, check out the "Score Tonight" song.
Like always, everything is vintage and this time I also
convert the prices into Swedish and American currency.

Bathing suit, 50 pence. (6 kr, $0,75)

Scarf, 10 pence. (1,30 kr, $0,15)

Handbag, 10 pence. (1,30 kr, $0,15)

A night out at Dingwalls!
Our friends, The Hormonauts, put on a really great
show, as always.
My man picked up the guys at the airport and then
drove them to Dingwalls in Camden and since there
was no room in the car for me my lovely man came
back home to get me.
It was great to see friends that I don't get to see that
often, lots of catching up to do.

I also met a Bull Terrier on the way to the gig, what
a cuddly pig! I could have scratched and kissed him
all day.

Great finds, especially those coasters.. I looked the gig photos and I said WOW! Your hair looks amazing! I'm soooo jealous ;)

Zizzi said...

Love the way you revamp things, like purces, ships wheels and other stuff!

Little Rascal said...

NormaJeane: Thanks doll.
I start to look like a damn hippie! :))

Zizzi: Thank you. :D
I feel very satisfied when I managed to turn something half decent into something that I wouldn't mind hanging on the wall or wearing.
Cheap thrills. :)

Another car boot sale and some beautiful finds :-) I am on a mission to go out to one of these myself, as me and partner (driver) have got access to a car since recently. Have you got any recommendations on which ones to visit? Please share!

(Wow, vilken grym baddräkt. Likt dig, dissikerar jag gärna sådana och syr om till bikinis).

Little Rascal said...

Ulrika: Yeah, and a jumble sale. :D
I like the one in Hatfield that's on Sundays, most of it is crap but I always manage to find stuff I can't live without. :)
Essex is the car boot country, there's a huge one that starts at 5 AM! Can't remember what it's called, I'll get back to you on that one.

Salla said...

Little Rascal said...

Miss Tayva: I know, I just forgot to change it.
