Junk Shop (& Market) Finds

It seems like truly ages since I did a post on vintage treasures. So, here are a few odds and ends that have recently persuaded me to take them home.

Vintage stockings. Bought purely for the packaging. Pretty fabulous, eh?



If I ever go away on a jolly holiday or a city break or well, anywhere requiring a change of clothes, this is the bag I will be taking. I saw it as I was paying up in my local junk shop, it was full of random house clearance stuff, which they kindly emptied just so I could buy it.



A lovely London Bus, given to Iris *for free* by a friendly couple whose stall we regularly visit at the market.







Squeak! A brown leather mouse purse.



Today, I have been trying to stop procrastinating, this of course, means facing up to the fact that Christmas is next week. And with that came the realisation that even low key, budget-y Christmases require SOME planning and forethought. Bum.
