WEEKEND BARGAINS

I must say that PMS and car boot sales are one bad
combination! Still I managed to get some pretty neat
stuff.
Here's a few items of the load I dragged back home.

Red glitter vinyl clutch, £1.
How could I resist?

Big 1960's suitcase, £1.
Great storage!!! I got a few old suitcases and cases and they
are absolutely awesome as storage. Stylish too. :)

Vintage wicker bags, 50 pence each.
Yeah, like I need more? :))

Nine West straw tote, £1.
I'm no brand girl but I do like the black straw and the gold trim. 
Might remove the gold tag and add some exotic flowers instead.

1950's gold lamé handbag, 50 pence.
Another bag I couldn't resist.

1950's handbag, 50 pence.
This bag was awfully filthy on the outside but with some non 
scratch scourers and Fairy liquid it turned out great.

Mock croc jewelry box, 50 pence.
Nice and big box for bigger necklaces, all my old (1950's/1960's)
jewelry boxes are so damn small and I really needed something
this size. I managed to haggle it down to 50 pence because the 
clasp needed gluing.

Moomin book, 50 pence.
I saw this in a comic book store in Brighton last year but didn't
want to spend £13, glad I waited. :D

1960's and 1970's toys, £3 for the lot.
So awesome...

Hej!
Ja fördelen med att bo i Sverige är helt klart loppisutbudet! Min sambo är engelsman och jag är mycket i england , men som du säger loppisarna lyser med sin frånvaro. Men dom är ändå väldigt intresserade av vintage och retro har jag fått för mig? Man borde kanske helt enkelt börja exportera svenska loppisprylar med båt till england :)

Finns det några slags loppiskedjor i england? Var hittar du dina grejer?

Kul att du hittade lite ögongodis på min blogg! Jag har varit dålig på att blogga på sista tiden men ska bättra mig

Hälsningar från Sverige!
