THE MOTHERLOAD

We really hit the motherload of finds last weekend.
We got a whole lot more than this but these items
are my favorite purchases...

Click the images for larger view.

SATURDAY

Angora lurex top, 50 pence.
Can't get more pinup than this. :))


Lurex shrug, 60 pence.
This looks fab on! Really classy.


Wicker lamp shade, 30 pence.
Yep, more wicker. Perfect for our kitschy lounge.


Vintage shorts, 50 pence.
These still had the old tag left.
I'm gonna shorten these slightly, I look like Carmella
Soprano otherwise. :))



1950's vase, 50 pence.
Love these colors, goes perfectly with the walls in my hobby
room as you can see.


SUNDAY

1950's ballerina bottle, £1.
Second "dancing bottle" we now got.
Here's the other one.


Corset top, 30 pence.
Perfect basic summer wear.


1950's fabric, £4 for the lot.
There's one more panel of the fabric on the left.
I can't decide what to to with these amazing fabrics, one
minute I'm thinking dress, the other I think playsuit.



Top, 50 pence.


Heels, £1.
These are SO me! Love them.


Lurex top, 50 pence.


Vintage snack plate, 50 pence.
Wicker style. :) We now use this one as a Seder plate.
Perfect timing.



Plate in action.


1950's tin, 50 pence.

I must be missing a trick- I'm in North West London and haven't had any boot sales this good either!

You're boot sales are fantastic. I never find anything as good as any of your motherload and if I did, they wouldn't be for pence!
