Vouchers and the vintage fair

This morning I was so excited to get up and go to the vintage fair at Old Spitalfields Market. I had picked my outfit, mentally, the night before. Charged my camera and packed some change for lunch. I did not arrive at the fair till 1:30pm despite getting up at 10am. I had to wake my boyfriend up and wait for him to get ready, I am sure he takes more time to get ready than I do. We were on the move.

Once I had arrived I called @pop_up_vintage to collect my vouchers and begin shopping. I met the lovely ladies who gave me the vouchers, had a chat and they took a few pictures on several photographic devises. I felt like a celeb. I was so pleased I had won.

In carboot sale London

CARBOOT SALE TIME

Having not blogged for over a month now, I thought I would get back into the swing of things by writing about my carboot sale adventure I had today. Hopefully there will be more to follow this summer from across London.

I had initially intended to go to 2 carboots in one day, but as I spent at least 2 hours at the first one, walking around in circles, I left no time to go to the other. My intentions were to go to Capital Carboot in Pimlico - which was the one I went to and to go to Battersea Boot, but didn't make it. I intend to go there soon, as I believe it to be one of London's best boots but Capital Carboot isn't doing too bad. I have been there twice in the last 3 weeks. My first visit there I was slightly disappointed as there went many sellers and I didn't buy anything. I nearly bought a Zara bucket bag for £10, but decided I didn't need another handbag, why did I listen to my boyfriend? So I continued to walk around the boot and then decided I wanted the bag, but by that time it was too late and some other girl had purchased a really good bargain. Shucks I knew I should have bought it.
