Well after the drama of Friday I have had a rather bland weekend. I was hoping to be blogging about an array of beautiful finds from markets and boot sales today - but alas this was not my weekend.
Yesterday, I quickly popped in on the North London Vintage Market held in Crouch End, which had been pretty great on my last two visits. However, I was sorely disappointed. The same old sellers, were selling the same old stuff from the last fair two months ago. I literally picked up the same items and remembered why I hadn't bought them last time. Unfortunately the sellers are also after a hefty price for their items. I can understand it, but I get a little indignant especially when I can get the same things from a charity shop (with a bit of rummaging) for a quarter of the price.
I then popped in on the Vintage Tea Party & Gift Fair at The Boogaloo in Highgate, which is run by some fab ladies. I would love to have a stall one month (first saturday of every month if you're interested) but again I didn't find anything to take my fancy. In this case it's mostly because the crafts are crafts I'm interested in doing myself - so why would I buy anything - but still I was hoping to come away with something.
Then today was car booting. I was meant to be attending with a friend but we had to postpone so I quickly popped in on one with the fiance. Again a huge disappointment, despite it being a huge car boot. The sellers were again after an arm and a leg for their items.
All I got was this pretty little plate...
|75p - Bargained down from £1|
Which I think I will use to hold pretty things in my bedroom somewhere.
On the way home I thought I'd give it one more go and hope my luck had changed, dropping in on a charity shop. I found a little something for my swap partner for the Hope & Faith Charity Shopping Swap which I hope she will love (I want to keep it and we have similar taste, so I have a feeling she will, lol!)
So all in all a disappointing weekend. Plus I've still got this blasted cold, but have to go to work tomorrow and worry about my car being sorted on Tuesday - I'm just waiting for next weekend already!
But on a positive note, the fiance just put up my lovely refurbished mirror in our bedroom...
And I think it looks lovely! (sorry about the bad quality phone picture!)
