On Saturday I dared to drag myself out of bed and
go to a local car boot sale with my man.
It was like hell on earth in the heat and with a lot of
not so polite people around but I did snag some neat
stuff so I shouldn't complain.

Here's some of the finds.
Click the images for a better view.

Coat, £2.50
Like I need another one!!!
My man gave it to me, he thought it was really cool and I thought
looked like something out of the wardrobe of Sky Captain and the

World of Tomorrow.

Vintage crochet top, 50 pence.
This top is SO neat and it's my favorite shade of yellow.

Satin tunic dress, 20 pence.
I'm gonna alter this slightly, take it in on the sides and also shorten it
so I can use it as a top.

This looks awesome with black harem pants and a elastic belt.

Tunic dress, 50 pence.
This also look really good with black harem pants and my vintage elastic
belt with rose buckle.
I need to show you at some point soon!

Close up.

1950's kids stuff, £1.50 for the lot.
My favorite in this lot is the song book, it has illustrations by one of my
favorite illustrators, Mary Blair. *swoon*

Framed picture, 70 pence.
I've been wanting one since 2005! :D

1960's tin, £2.
The prefect tin for my bags of seeds.

Vintage lurex wool, £2.50
Vintage dressmakers chalk, 50 pence.
I want to learn how to knit and what wool suits this gal better than
lurex wool. :))

Wool is not that cheap over here so a whole bag for £2.50 is one heck
of a bargain!
I might be able to use the wool if I want to have a go with
the 1950's loom I got last week...

I bet you can't wait for it to get cold now then you can start to wear all your coats! How will you choose which to put on?! ;)

Little Rascal said...

Nah, I like it hot, today wasn't that nice tho so I guess I'll be putting them on soon.
How to choose... I guess I have to do like Luke Rhinehart's Dice Man, number my options and then roll a dice.

Well no wonder I cannot find a proper coat, you are buying them all up!! *LOL*
I adore that coat you got it's very funky.
The crochet top is so sweet.
The sleeves on the red dress are great.
The floral dress is so cute.

You did quite well. I like the picture you got that you have wanted since 2005.

Little Rascal said...

LOL! Yeah, I got a few by now. For that price it's hard to resist.
Yeah, it was quite neat to find the Bull Terrier picture, I kind of forgot that I was looking for it. :)
