Yesterday, I travelled up from Wycombe to Walsall to meet three gorgeous ladies: Vix, Curtise and Tania
Curtise was due to turn up a bit later, annoyingly because of wanky trains it was 3 hours later, but she got there and we all had a riot. Whilst we were waiting we explored the flea market and the Indian trimmings stall
Indian trimmings Margaret Tarrant print 50p, Orange lace table mats 20p, Eye Eye Haircomb, made by me! and blurry postcard of lady and baby £1
Walsallians (or Walsallites?) were on fine form, Vix and Tania just missed the huge guy singing gospel in a loud woman's voice. When Curtise arrived we had lunch and more giggling. We also swapped presents....
From Vix a selection of 80s dresses and a silk shirt
Turns out Tania is really creative and had designed these gorgeous cards, the mug and the little kawaii magnets, also she added some perfectly pastel 80s earrings, a great looking book and more hideous children.
From Curtise, this sleepy dog to add to my matching figurines and this very cute complete wildlife cigarette card book!
What generous girls, so generous in fact that I had to buy a cheap hessian shopping bag to shove all my goodies into. Which became ridiculously heavy and mysteriously weightier through out my journey home
Second To None was our pilgrimage place and we had a fantastic time there, poor June, putting up with us cackling and riffling through everything, not to mention wandering round in our undies (mostly upstairs, though I did venture downstairs in a bottomless cozzie...)
Curtise trying on a beautiful green 50s evening jacket and Vix gathering piles of stuff.
From Second to None - 1940s spring jacket, 30s carved Bakelite bangle and pendant. I also bought this gorgeous lady from the 20p section of the flea market, she was chipped all over but I managed to restore her former glory with some acrylic paint
Vix didn't buy this daring little number -mad woman, think of the customers she'd attract when doing Kinky Melon at fesitvals!
I also bought nearly every pair of bloomers in the shop!
The minty green pair have a WWII CC41 label, the blue pair were 40s too and the dashing pink ones a bit newer
A Liberty skirt and handmade silky bloomers from Second to None, some saucey fishnets from Vix and a pink handknitted bed jacket from Scope
I forgot to take any photos of myself so.... Photo Curtisey of Curtise....
I wore: Coat - charity shop, Bag - Clarks, Dress - Ebay, Tights - Dorothy Perkins, Shoes - Office via Ebay
We got invited in to Vix and Jon's den of fabulousness
Tea and chats were had and then all too soon it was time for Tania to drive us back to the station!
Another brilliant, though knackering blogging day out. I'll hopefully be modelling some purchases soon!
