And I Would Have Gotten Away With It, Too, If It Wasn't For You Meddling Kids


Yes, blame me. I'm the idiot who packed away all my winter gear last week and should have known better. The UK has been battered by hailstones the size of golf balls, snowstorms, thunder and lightning ever since. Last night's frost was so severe that our wheelie bin was welded to the path this morning. 


Still, my trusty Smurf fur coat kept the Arctic breeze at bay and I was fine when I went out chazzing in my halterneck maxi dress.


 I made this dress last Summer using a 1971 Simplicity pattern and a £1.99 pair of curtains from a charity shop.  The last time I wore it I was made to pose for countless selfies with lagered-up festival goers.  It again proved a sensation today. Strangers raved over the Scooby-Doo! print, amazed that I'd made it myself. At one point 12 people clustered around me, pulling at the fabric and demanding I remove my coat for a closer look after the sales assistant in the busiest charity shop in town yelled "Look at that woman, 'er made that dress from curtains" across the shop floor. 

And talking of charity shops..... we've been busy. Festival season is approaching (hooray!) and we need as much stock as we can lay our hands on. Unlike the vintage fairs where we specialise in clothes from 1960s and 1970s - and often earlier - our festival stock, like much of the clientele, is more fashion-forward so we include clothing from 1980s & 1990s in addition to cool ethnic pieces.


Here's just a bit of what we found today (I've already filled the washing machine twice) - '90s crop tops, 1970s lurex, boho chic, distressed denim, 1960s tailoring, 1980s sportswear, rayon slip dresses and Indian tunics.


Yes, Jean Paul Gaultier for two quid!!! (Currently in the wash, too creased to photograph in full.)


Isn't this Horrockses whitework camisole beautiful? I reckon its early Twentieth century. Isn't it amazing what you can find on a rail of mostly Primark & New Look cast-offs?


Can you believe it? Another pair of Stuart Weitzman shoes in my size! In collaboration with posh shoe shop Russell & Bromley they're on their website (HERE) for £255. 


I dithered about this large framed Bob Peak print for at least a minute! Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by the amazing stuff in charity shops that I go into a daze. Bob Peak was the commercial artist behind loads of iconic film posters (Modesty Blaise, My Fair Lady, Apocalypse Now, The Spy Who Loved Me) as well as advertisements for Ford, Marlboro and 7-Up. This advert for French Line Travel was realised in 1960. It really was £1!


Vintage glassware is ten-a-penny in charity shops and I rarely bother with it but made an exception for these cuties. They remind me of Pippi Longstocking. They're a decent size (I can't be doing with those piffling little shot glasses) and are perfect for our mid-week Lidl white rum and own brand cola. £2.50 for the set.



At £1 I couldn't leave these ridiculously glittery, platform-soled trainers behind. I'll get some laces from Poundland.


Wearing - Me-made maxi, fake fur jacket (£7, ex-catalogue shop, 2011), 1980s Juhani Palmroth of Finland boots, 1950s bag (20p, Car boot sale, 2008), Wooden necklace (Handmade by Tania), Wood & plastic bangles (charity shops)
I'll have earnt that rum and coke by the time I've tackled the gargantuan washing pile!

See you soon (we're trading with Judy's in Manchester on Saturday, come along if you can).

  4. Zoinks! (as Shaggy would say) you're looking gorgeous in your Scooby-Do dress. Does this make Gilbert the Mystery Machine?! No wonder it gets admiring looks and comments too. My gasted is flabbered by the chazzing recent haul. How rare is that - finding an Edwardian camisole in a chazza? What a buy and I love that Bob Peake print. Yes, the daze happens to me too on a good day - I'm always worried though that someone will snatch it from under my very nose! xxx

    The camisole is beautiful, I love the glasses. I loved Pippi Longstocking when I was a child; probably my favourite female child character from a book of all time. Love the glittery trainers and well done you on the classy wedges! Another football WAG possibly?

  22. I want to be able to sew! Of course I can learn to sew basics, but what the final result on something wearable when I've tried before is far from what people with skills can achieve.

    And, like Gisela, I do not know how you find such great things - you must just have 'the eye'. I guess if photographers can have a natural eye for a good picture, and some people a natural ear for languages, it makes sense for someone to have a good eye for vintage.

That Smurf blue is far more wearable than my own gray and white cozy coat -- and unless some weirdo believes you actually collected Smurf pelts, you're safe from catsup attack. A character actually accosted me with "How many animals died...?" I replied, "Half a dozen polyesters and one rare rayon." (Yes, I do own a mink stole and my ancient cat sleeps on it.)

The weather has been particularly bonkers though - brightest sunshine followed by snowstorms, what's a girl to wear? A you-made Scooby frock and fur, that's what! Of course everyone clusters around to admire you, you're fabulous!
    And you find some fabulous stock too - if only the stuff which filtered through to my shop was anything like as good... I'd have snapped up those sandals and cute glasses too, and the print is an unbelievable find.

  57. The dress dedicated to Scooby-Doo is a stroke of genius! Here, too, the weather is completely insane: rain, floods, hail and wind so strong that ruined our fruit trees ... I am desolate for Nature ... Fortunately today it is sunny, but temperatures require the coat and heavy socks! This selection of clothes and accessories is extraordinary! I wait for the festival to see them through your eyes and your posts!

  58. That print was a pound? Sometimes I'm flummoxed by pricing. Some things are practically given away but the same shop will ask £7 for a Primark's dress. There's no logic to it (good for someone like you who knows what to look for though - you got some absolute bargains!)

    1. I think that's why I hesitated, £1 is far too cheap for something that groovy! x

  59. The weather's been crazy recently. We went from snow to summer in a matter of days. I see you've been causing a stir again! I bet it's quite nice to be looking for different things for change. That Horrockses camisole is beautiful. I love the French line poster. I used to have a pair of glittery plimsolls which I never had off my feet. The combination of sparkle and comfort is irresistible. Xxxx
