A BIT OTT

Another long bank holiday weekend, I'm not too fond of
them because everything seems to be on hold.
Long weekend means more car boot sales, this time we
went to seven all and all.
I got so many finds it's ridiculous, it was actually a bit
tedious to create this post. :))

Well, here's a tiny, yes, tiny, selection of my recent finds.
Click on the images for larger view.


Vintage pearl chandelier earrings, 50 pence.
Love these, I got something similar but with bigger and
a lot more pearls.



Vintage Thermoset earrings, 50 pence.
Stunning, now I'm on a hunt for a matching necklace.


Shoes, £1.
New. For casual summer wear.


Shoes, 50 pence.
New, I didn't think pink suede was my thing. :))


Spanish doll, 50 pence.
Perfect addition to my collection, I don't have a lady with a hat,
only with fans and guitars or a bloke.



Vintage mini basket, 30 pence.
This one is soooo cute! It really is tiny.


Vintage Bambi, 50 pence.
I got one just like this already but not with a polka dot bow.


Vintage necklaces, 20 pence and 50 pence.
Love the cherry Kool Aid colored necklace with glass beads,
the other one looks like olives on a string, would like to know
what kind of plastic it is. Love the fact that it has got a plastic
screw clasp.



Bracelet, 50 pence.
This must be the first wide bracelet that actually looks good on me.
The shape makes me thing of crocodile teeth.



Belt, 30 pence.
Funny, the same seller wanted £1 for it the other week. :))


Vintage picture, £1.
Perfect addition to our exotic lounge and my Hawaiian
collection.



Vintage picture, £1.
I want to get new black sleek frames before they go up on the wall.
They go perfect together with our customized 1960's Ladderax
units
too!



Vintage shot glasses on stand, £5.
Even tho it's not pennies it's still a bargain.
My man refused to go home without it.



Vintage wicker box, 25 pence.
It's not that I needed another wicker sewing box but I don't
have a blue one and I couldn't
refuse that price. :))



Lurex cardigan, £1.
Cute cardigan, perfect for summer.


Close up.


Vintage candle holder, 50 pence.
I'm in an orange state of mind at the mo.


Vintage cook book, 50 pence.
I love the colors in old cook books, don't know why, I just do.
This was a gift from my man.



Jacket, 50 pence.
Even tho I got tons of pretty things this jacket is my favorite
find. It's suits me perfectly, I look dead cool in it. :))
I don't care that the armpits are scruffy, I will wear it til it's
moulting.



Cami suspender, £1.
Vintage robe, £1.
The cami is from Ann Summers and it was never worn,
my man insisted on buying it for me. I wonder why, any ideas? ;)
The robe is amazing, deadstock.

Vintage jewelry boxes, 20 pence each.
Now here's something I've been looking for for many years,
a jewelry case for traveling.
The pink one is ace too! I got two of these in white with black
polka dots and they hold more than you'd think.



R is for Rascal! :)


Both in very good condition inside and out.
