As I mentioned on a recent post, I managed to pick up some more bargains on a recent shopping trip.
From New Look I got a lovely jumper for £11 (in the sale) and a vest top similar to the blue one I am wearing in the woods but in wine for £2 (also in the sale). From Accessorize I got a pair of earrings for £6. The earrings are in a sort of belly dancer style, I guess, but they are something I have wanted for a while now. In Primark I got a skirt for £3, a necklace and earrings set for £2.50, a pair of 120 Denier tights for £2.50, a 3-pack of “Emergency handbag tights” for £1.50, with each pair in a very compact tear-off plastic bubble designed to stay in your handbag till you ladder the ones you’re wearing. Very handy. And, finally, a DVD (Kill Bill: Volume 1) which I got in Poundland for, obviously enough, £1. Total spend was £29.50 plus £1.60 parking. Not too bad I think.
You can see the jumper, the skirt, and just about see the earrings, in this pic:
And here is a better pic of the earrings.
Then, today, I went to an Antiques and Collectors fair. I managed to buy four Royal Doulton port / sherry glasses in the “Georgian” style for £11 (negotiated down from £14), to add to my existing collection of this style, and also a pair of silver earrings for the grand price of £4 (I didn’t have the cheek to negotiate those down. LOL.
