This is a Stratton metal note pad with a little pen attached, it came in original box with a spare note pad and a little velvet pouch.I got this at a outdoor market that is held twice a week in a town near to me, they have a lot of vintage stalls and you can pick up some great bargains.This Stratton note pad was £5, the lady said it was 50's.I thought it was a nice note pad, I've had Stratton vintage compacts before but I've never had a note pad so i thought it was something different.
I got these earrings from the market too, off the same lady.I really liked the ones with the coloured enamel spots i thought they were so unusual.The shell earrings were nice to and they tie in with my nautical obsession.I got a lot more earrings off this lady too including another shell pair the same colour but they are a dangly version (hard to explain) I also got an old Avon perfume bottle which was a black cat (love cats) off this lady too.I think the earrings were £1 for the spot ones and 50p for the shell ones.The cat perfume bottle was £1.I should of taken a picture of it i know.I will post a picture of it on twitter though.
I got these lovely vintage blouses at the Car boot that i go to all the time (I'm addicted) they were off a lady who had found them up her loft, they still had the tags on them.I really liked the pattern and the cute little collar.I had quite a few vintage things off this lady too.These blouses were about £2 each.I think they are 70's or 80's.
These are some things i have had recently from my local charity shop, which i seem to live in just lately.They seem to be having more things in every day and they are really reasonable and are really cheaply priced.I almost want to say are you sure that's enough?! I have made friends with the woman who owns it and she saves me things now.She saved me a gorgeous vintage handmade dress in the most prettiest material, i haven't taken a picture off this yet but i will definitely show you this dress.
I got this cool necklace too for £1.It has plastic cubes on it and i think its quite unusual and would dress a plain dress or top up.
This is a picture of one of my birthday cakes, it was my birthday on Tuesday i was 29, i don't feel that old.This cake was off my boyfriend and the flowers were off my auntie and nan.I had another lovely cake off my auntie but we had already eaten that one.
I got this skirt this week from the charity shop i mentioned before.It was £1.50, its Clock house make.It looks pink in the picture but its red with little black spots, i love anything with spots! Its quite long, i wore it on my birthday Tuesday with a plain black tshirt tucked in and my black patent bow loafers from primark.The outfit choice was a bad idea has the weather was terrible it was windy and it was hailing at one point.I also wore my beaded twisted necklace too which i pictured before, with this outfit.
This Sunday just gone i got a really good bargain at the car boot this Chanel Pearl necklace for £5 i aren't sure its real but it had all the bits with it like auth card etc, if it isn't real though i don't mind has i really like it.I got some other good bargains too.
I know its a long post but i buy so much.Hope you enjoy this post.I just lack in confidence that's why my blog has been really lacking.I will try very hard to keep taking pictures and keep showing you my bargains.
Hope you are all having a good week.
