    Yesterday I got a BNWT Joules off the shoulder top, pink and white stripes and embroidered sleeves, the CS originally had it at £6 but it was on the sale rail for £2 (nothing in between), it's a 10 but it looked roomy and it fits me just fine. Also got a White Stuff modal vest, super soft, charcoal grey, muscle back style with teal top stitching £1 (they originally wanted £4.75), I will wear this for running. A pair of Next pale stone colour chinos £3.99 and a pair of M&S high waisted straight leg jeans £3.99. Lastly a bone china mug, white with black floral and bird design, footed style with a wide mouth £1.50, pricey but I really liked it and it is big.


    I did see a couple of other really nice tops but at £4 and £5 they were too much considering how many I actually have.

    I'm really selective about what I buy nowadays too, Dolly.
    My wardrobes are groaning and although I keep dragging things out and trying them on hoping to make a little room, there's nothing that I want to let go. :(

    On the very topic of wardrobes groaning yesterday I took full advantage of ebays £1 max selling fee and listed nearly 50 items of clothing and bits that I have bought as a bit of a risk or flight of fancy that haven’t paid off! At the age of 50 I’m having to reconcile myself to sticking with styles I’m comfortable with. Anyway after spending most of the day at it with dd15 as my camerawoman I have already sold 6 items and have over £100 in PayPal. I totted up the possible final total (I’ve listed as buy it now) and horrifyingly it’s nearly £1000! Now I don’t think all will sell and obviously it’s a faff but I am feeling a little better about some of these purchases now they are going to new homes

    Pollycat - I'm the same, the only reason I'm not wearing the things in my wardrobe is I don't get chance, not because I don't want to wear them.


    Yesterday I got DS a Vans t shirt, it is burgundy with the logo in black, looks barely worn, it is a mans size small and fits him (age 13) really well - £3.49, I got DH a brand new Rohan t shirt, sage green with a print across the chest £3.50 and I got a pair of F&F wide leg summer trousers, black with ditsy floral print in orange, green and white £1.49.

    Two metres of vintage barkcloth-type fabric for £2. Underwhelmed? So is DH, but similar stuff is around £15 -20 online in the fancy retro sewing shops ��

    A shallow clear Pyrex dish - deeper than a casserole lid- to replace the one I dropped, £1.50. I have been waiting g for one to turn up for quite a time!

    Luxor4t, I'm not underwhelmed at all!
    Any thoughts as to what you might do with the fabric yet?
    Barkcloth is very cool right now amongst the mid century fans.

    Was tempted by two items today....but talked myself out of buying them :A

    First item was a Gucci vintage handbag on display in the Mind shop window and priced at £35. I don't know enough about Gucci bags to be able to tell if it was genuine or not and I didn't inspect it too closely in case I was tempted :o I do love a nice vintage bag tho and this was in dark brown embossed leather in a hobo sort of style. The leather felt gorgeous and the bag seemed very well made ......hmmmmm.

    Second item was in the big Sue Ryder place...an M & S short black leather jacket priced at £15. Zipped up front and fitted back with hardly any wear (if at all) and lovely soft leather. Twas just so darned hot I couldn't he bovvered trying it on and didn't really 'need' it. Will probably be wafting by both shops again on Friday so may end up having a really good squiz if both items are still there. :p
