As you can see, I even managed to find yet another candy stripe sheet - hoorah!
I love this blue floral number. Unfortunately, every photo I took of the darn thing was blurred.
The colours of the 1960s dress fabric on the left show up much better in the first photo above - rust with flecks of yellow. The fabric on the right reminds me of Morrocan tiles:
This one is very cute, little black and yellow vases with pretty flowers:
A large piece of crimplene:
But not just any old crimplene:
|Mary Quant Crimplene - no less|
I bought the fabric in a bundle with other stuff so each item cost about 30p. I think I'll start searching for easy peasy dress making patterns. I fancy making a simple top, ideally one which does-up with a single button at the back. Watch this space, folks.
As well as being materially blessed, I also found this Ben Sherman Limited edition shirt with deliberately distressed images of The Beatles - 20p:
I love this cheerful St Michael scarf and on the right is a cheerful yellow chiffon one. Back in the day, I used to wear my mum's chiffon scarves in my hair together with 1950s dresses that I used to pick up at jumbles!
A 60s dress suit which actually fits me:
You can just about see the pretty detail on the bodice:
Look at the latest edition to my wooden handled utensil collection. YAY!! A yellow one. Thank you to everyone who suggested ways of displaying them particularly as some of them haven't a hanging hole. I think I may go for a magnetic strip when I get a few more. The Portmeirion mug (50p) was probably my favourite buy.
Mr J and P nabbed these (4 for a £1) to add to our small collection of Observer Books. I must say, though, the book of Commercial Vehicles doesn't exactly thrill me to the marrow. Almost as scintilating as my Ladybook book of The History of Plastics that I bought the other week.
A 50s gold lurex evening purse in perfect nick and a sweet purse with folksy dancers on it (I like a bit of folksy) - a souvenir from Sardinia (20p each):
Well, that's all folks. Have a good week, bargain seekers near and far!
