Whilst in this last store, a Salvation Army charity shop, I began conversation with one of the women who worked there. I was informed that the next was the shop's birthday and to celebrate everything would be half-price. Rather excited I made plans to come back again, but had a quick look inside anyway. And goodness I'm glad I did.
Earlier that day I had only been looking at my vintage collection and noticed that I had not any vintage maxi dresses. Whilst browsing I came across this beautiful cyclamen coloured dress. Really, the camera does not do this dress justice. It was a great find for me because I'm quite short, and maxi dresses never seem to fit me, but this fit just right. And for only $7.00 it was a steal. I could have waited and got it the next day for only $3.50 but I was too afraid that it would end up in the clutches of someone else. I also bought myself three burnt orange espresso mugs and saucers by Gempo Fine China - Japan for only $1.50. Pity there was no fourth.
Coming back the next day I found many things:
The above pair of shoes - $1.50.
They are very tiny, at size 5. I couldn't believe I could fit into them.
It made me wonder, if I can fit into these why can't I fit into these?!
Brocade dress - $5.00
Cisada dress with original tag still intact - $2.50
It has splits right up the side which at first did not appeal to me, but after thinking of pairing it with a pair of black tights like Edie here in a similar looking dress I fell in love with it.
Powder blue chiffon blouse from Suzy Speed - $2.00
Vintage white wrist length gloves - $2.00
Vintage white over the elbow gloves - $3.50
