Recent purchases ft Tyne mouth market and buys!
So i haven't posted any purchases recently. And as you all know i am a keen thrifter and charity shopper. Im constantly rummaging around car boot sales markets and charity shops to find the best vintage finds. And even sometimes just great modern finds and home ware. And i have been out there recently looking for things. But ive only been buying a couple of things so wanted to picked up a few items before posting a "haul" post. But then i ended up picked up a lot of things so it turned into a lotta stuff "haul" I have picked up surprisingly a lot of shoes and accessories recently including bangles because im literally obsessed with them at the moment. I just cant get enough of layered necklaces and stacked arm candy! so ive been stocking up! and ive been stocking up on the fur for the winter. So it better be a cold one. The only thing im concerned about is im gonna have a super warm head and freezing toes as all the shoes ive been buying lately have been peep toes. But socks and heels are in for winter so i may just be onto a winner and a winter saver!
But to get back to the haul hope you enjoy my recent purchases. And the great thing is everything ive purchased lately has been way under ten pound because im constantly trying to save money. Enjoy!
Silver t bar strappy open toes platforms - £1! the x catalogue shop. I literally never normally shop there as they are for the bigger lady. And stock sizes up from 18 but any how they always have amazing shoes and accessories and they had a massive summer sale to get rid of all there old stock so all shoes and some clothes where £1 so i picked up this pair for only all let you guess..... £1 so i picked up a few pairs!
I also picked up there pink platforms from the x catalogue shop for £1 they has originally been over £30! and you cant go wrong for a pound but ive since worn them are there super comfy and will be great even in winter with chunky knitted socks or tights. Cant wait!
Pink cut out platform sling backs £1 - the x catalogue shop
I picked up these really cute lemon cork platforms from salvation army for only £2.70 and i was shocked because the salvation army where i live the shoes usually start at around £5.99. But when i got home i realised why they where so cheap. because of fading to the right shoe. I was disappointed but decided to just stick them in the sunlight for a couple of weeks till they both fade out. Or but some dye but i love the colour!
I got these cute strappy heels from my local tk max for only £2! because the right shoe had no strap so i did what any girl would do.. or just me! and added some matching ribbon to give them a bit of pazazz! and live lied them up a little!
These hats have got to be my best buys yet! i have recently started volunteering in Cancer Research UK in Durham dressing there windows and mannequins and i went to look for more stock and found all found of these little beauties and as everyone knows i cant resist a good vintage hat. Especially a vintage one! so when she said i could have all of them for only £6 how could i refuse?
I also had a little trip to my local car boot a few Sundays ago and managed to get my hands on these super cute green mock croc ravel shoes with diamanté shoe clips for £2

There was also a opening of a brand spanking new salvation army shop at Seaham so i of course who am i to resist? headed over there and managed to get my hands on these incredible clear plastic stilettos with cute flower on the front. Ive been dreaming of a pair of cute plastic shoes recently so when i saw these i knew i had to have them there not the most comfortable shoes but there pretty. And every women knows fashion knows not of comfort!

I also finally managed to get to Tyne mouth market as ive been wanting to got for years. And now i dont work on a weekend ive finally been able to go and it was well worth the wait. I love anything that involves a good rummage so this was right up my street. Picked up these babies for only £1 when i asked the guy how much they where even though it was a £1 stall! but anyways i got them!
I also got this amazing vintage ring for £1 from a lovely old lady well she was about 60!
Brooch and earrings set - £2.50
Ive been looking for a fur collar for so long. Ever since i saw a vintage post card with a women wearing one as a belt and instantly knew i needed to re create the look and i got this one for £8
I managed to get my hands on one of these amazing Spanish hair combs a few months ago and wanted another one. But could never manage to find one anywhere and i looked on line and they where surprisingly expensive! they where selling on ebay for over £40!!!! which is crazy! so when i saw this vintage one for only £5 i needed and had to have and well i got it!
And last but not least. To end this ridiculously long blog post which feels like it has taken me over 2 days to write but it has really taken me 2 hours. I got my hands on yet another wicker handbag from the barnardos charity shop for £2 as everythings £2 for some reason which i dont know why! but they are. I hope you've enjoyed the post and as always feel free to comment!
