Old Spitalfields Antique & Vintage Flea Market

If you've never been able to get to the amazing Antique market held at Spitalfields every Thursday because you're busy working, well it's good news as you can now visit on a Saturday!  Taking over the market every last Saturday of the month will be an array of antique dealers, vintage clothing sellers and retro sellers like me; I'll be bringing mid century furniture and some great 60s & 70s homeware.  So something for everyone....  It's free entry too!

More Xmas finds....

I'm not looking, honest!  These things just keep popping up.  I love this 60s Xmas themed drinks tray that I found today.

Perfect for the glasses that I found the other day! 

And this little glass birdie....  

Dare I say it - I am almost getting in the Christmas mood now.... too early??

Charity shop Xmas finds!

I have to say Christmas was very far from my mind,  I don't really have to do much in the way of prep anyway... well apart from buy many, many pressies for my large family.  But as for the rest of it well, I still get to go to my Mums! 

But yesterday when I found myself wandering round the charity shops; it was a pretty miserable wet afternoon yesterday and my super comfy, well loved brogue shoes have started to let in water - very miserable indeed but I pressed on! I found one of my favourite charity shops had put out all their xmas stock.  I had to grab a basket as they had so much good stuff.  I got everything here for less than £10!  That includes 4 gold coloured plates, loads of vintage tree decorations, some glasses (they looked Christmassy to me!), some lovely gloves and a headband.  Bargain huh?  And that's just another reason I bypass the High Street shops and head straight for charity shops!


I thought these glasses would look great with tea lights in!  I'm keeping an eye out for more.  These were 30p each!
