I spent so much money last week that my bank account was almost squealing in protest. At the very least I expected one of those phone calls from the manager checking that nothing untoward had occurred. (“No Mr Bank Manager, that was me who bought the fifteen pairs of shoes. Nothing to worry about at all!”) But when I heard that Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair was coming to Durham, I just had to see what all the fuss was about. A mistake perhaps, as I returned with my purse considerably lighter but carrying these purchases:
Firstly, from Your Vintage Life, these flowered Doc Martens. These very nearly caused a falling out with my friend, as we couldn’t work out from the label whether they were a 6 or an 8. But I was Cinderella on that occasion, and given that the shoes fit, it would have been churlish not to buy them.
Then there was this cute necklace, from Two Penny Lane. This stall had so many pieces of beautiful handmade jewellery that it was difficult to choose between them. One of my friends got a necklace with a miniature but working harmonica attached to the chain.
And finally, because I can’t resist bargains or rings, I bought this for just £2! (Unfortunately, I can’t remember the name of the stall from which I bought it, so no link here.)
