My Vintage Goodies

Brrrrr isn't it cold, mind you it was forecast colder weather for the weekend.

Tomorrow I'm off to sunny Scarborough for a vintage fair but first I though you might like to see what I got in Pickering, do you want a look at my handbag?

Not sure if it's 1940's but I loved it as soon as I saw in in Annes' lovely vintage pop up cafe, it's in perfect condition and nice and clean inside!

Whoever had this clothing book can't have had many clothes as all the pages are intact,

a lovely letter from a son to his mother

 all beautifully written,

some hair grips for keeping those "rolls" in place,

and a programme from the Theatre Royal in York, 
"Watch On The Rhine"

which also advertised "Tea At Bettys"

I got this lovely old suitcase that has two compartments inside,
anyone know what would have been used for?

It has the original keys and a few knocks and scratches but I think it adds to the charm,

then there was a "new" cream vintage blanket that I've been throwing over my knees while watching TV,
 a box of hankies,  

and this lovely leather wallet for Mr Lucey. 

My Mam found me this lovely silk scarf and a gorgeous felt flower brooch in her "stash" 

so I'm all ready to see what vintage goodies I can get tomorrow to add to my little collection

Ooh lovely finds Lucey! Wonder if the compartments in the suitcase were to separate shoes from clothes? Love the poppy brooch too.

Have a fabulous Friday!

You got some lovely goodies and it sounds as if it was fab in Pickering. I do love visiting there myself and love the quirky little shops especially the antiquey places along the bottom and the charity shops.

Lovely finds - I think your suitcase is the biggest find of the year - have you seen Jelly Jam's blog? she has made some amazing decoupage cases I have been envious of. Betty
