And managed a few finds, Hubby came away with 26 LPs and a single, so was a very happy chappy, especially as half of them only cost £1 each and the other half only 10pence each!!!
|from classic 80s Jesus & Mary Chain, Robert Palmer and The Jam to Bob Dylan & Ella Fitzgerald|
some were soundtracks for both of us
|you can't turn down Prince's 'Batman' now can you, especially for 10p!|
and we couldn't turn down the soundtrack to what was one of my favourite tv shows growing up - well worth the 10p (hee hee)
|"I pity the fool who doesn't buy this record" ha ha ha|
We went to our usual haunts too, and I came away with some great haberdashery bits, including these fab bakelite buckles for 50p each (should have bought more perhaps) - haven't decided yet if these will be belt buckles or used on either a headband or as hair decor (will let you know) ...
and a small selection of fab vintage buttons for craft projects
from a little local vintage market I picked up this Canada souvenir silk scarf
and a couple of pieces of this wonderful vintage fabric (feels like 1950's curtain fabric)
and a length of fine pink suede
I also found another great book, a travel book for London in 1936, which has some great maps and fabulous information on where to go, stay, and 'customs' if you will.
I'm so pleased with my haberdashy/crafting finds and can't wait to go back (I always find something it seems), the fabrics are already washed and ready to go, I just need to choose what to make with them now... x
