Hurrah - I'm extremely hyper this evening as on my way home I popped into Oxfam and bought TONNES of stuff. If that wasn't enough... when I got home I had a whole bag of post from my mum (I'm house sitting at the moment and I haven't redirected all my ebay buys). Both dresses I'd bought fit really well, but both need things doing to them so will do a later post with my DIY efforts.
It was obviously a good time to go into my local Oxfam as I picked up all of this lot and all together the haul cost me £10.41!
Glass bead necklace £1.99 - I assume it's vintage. All the beads are irregular sizes and it's strung on string. Anyone any ideas of the date? It's really lovely and quite heavy
Victorian (I assume due to lack of markings and the design) octagonal plate with butterfly stickers £1.99
All the buttons! I picked up all the bags except the whites ones, as I have loads of those. The bags were 99p each - apart from the yellow ones which were 49p for some reason. Let's take a closer look at some of the more interesting ones...
Both these Ladybird Books were 49p - I seem to remember the Little Red Hen - they're not in A1 nick but I love Ladybird books so much I try to pick them up wherever they're cheap.
Actually I got these on Tuesday - they were only 49p each.
Here are the two dresses I got from ebay. Also recieved today were tailors chalks for the making of dresses as in this post and brown felt for the making of bunny badges - see my etsy shop link on the side.
I had a go at making rolled felt roses. They're dead easy so I may do a tutorial soon.
So that's my haul. I'm so pleased. I also got a letter from the Inland Revenue which was only telling me my tax code - phew!!
Here's some music appropriate to my current climate!
