Vintage Saturday



We're lucky that we only live about 10 minutes away from the seaside so on Saturday  we got our bikes out and rode down, there's a cycle path right along the sea front and it was a lovely day, the tide was out and there were a few ships bobbing about on the sea.

I forgot to take the camera so no pics I'm afraid.

Then we went to Durham to the "vintage stall" in the indoor market where there's always "gems" to be found,



I got this lovely blue "overall" but with a nip and a tuck it's now my best Summer dress.

 It's made from cotton with blue and green flowers on and red edging and there's a belt round it, the pocket is a V shape, just like a piece of bunting.



It looks lovely with the red accessories and the "dress" brooch I got from Jessie Chorley's shop.

As we got back in the  Town Mr Lucey called at the bike shop and the chap told him he had a cellar full of old bikes and did he want a look, so half an hour later he was the proud owner of a vintage "sunbeam" bike (I told you we had the bug now!!)



We're off to London at the weekend to  a few vintage shops and to visit the truly wonderful Julie Arkell.....oh I think I need a Tenna Lady I'm that excited!!

That's such a pretty pinny! How clever to make it into something else. Hope you find lots of vintage gems in London :o)
