Indeed, what is a girl to do on a bad bad hair and make up day? You know when you just can't be bothered with your appearance for love nor money?
You sweep your greasy hair off your face, pull on your favourite boots and try to distract attention away from your pasty, make-up free face with jewellery and... hair. It doesn't always work so well. But it didn't matter. These pics were taken after a fabulous morning spent with Mr N followed by a charity shop crawl and a lovely lunch
Dress - Two Squirrels Vintage
Boots & satchel - Ebay
Coat, cardi, tights & brooch - high street
Pendant - Groupon
I promised to show some of my Lake District charity shop finds and I'm nothing if not
predictable reliable so here you go. I've been meaning to do a thrifted finds post for ages now as I have found rather a lot of treasures recently, so I've incorporated all my recent finds into one rather epic post and here they are:-
I fell in love with this picture. It reminded me of the illustrations in one of my favourite fairytale books when I was a kid
To be honest, this post has a been a work-in-progress for a couple of months now. I have found so much stuff that by the time I've gotten around to photographing it, I've bought more. Then I forget which stuff is new. I have bought loads more since these pics were taken!
Which leads me to ponder the thorny issue of selling vintage. Something I've been thinking about for a while now, as I've slowly but surely seen my collection growing around me and gradually taking over my house. I've been selling stuff on Ebay for years but have never thought of it as a potential second income.
So, what do you reckon:-
Is it worth selling vintage, even for pocket money?
Online or at fairs?
Ebay or Etsy?
Pro's? Cons? Tips?
Any pearls of wisdom you lovely people could dispense in my direction would be much appreciated!
Have a great week
