Yesterday I had a lovely time meeting up with friends and perusing the wares at Stockport’s Vintage Village. I can’t believe it’s been nearly a year since I last went, but even though it had been so long they hadn’t forgotten about me and I got a lovely warm welcome from Sarah and my favourite stall holders. The day was made even better by the haul I came back with, allow me talk you through it…
My first stop was at the cake genius Stuart Thornley’s stall to pick up my mini cupcakes. At this point I’ll let Isla demonstrate the four stages of cake consumption…
I then completed the fifth stage later in the evening. Whoops!!
After a coffee with Dotty aka Michelle we joined forces and went spotting vintage beauties together. We found this lovely jacket on Lost But Never Forgotten’s stall. One of my favourite parts of any visit to VV is calling in for a chat with Emma from LBNF – she’s a real cutie! Emma and her pals also run Show Us Your Threads on ASOS market place.
We then strolled across to Room At The Top to visit All Mod Cons as I wanted to purchase a vintage phone. It’s the same kind of phone that we had at Mum and Dad’s and they make me feel all nostalgic. They had all different colours but not exactly what I was looking for so I’m popping back to choose between a two tone green phone or pink and cream when they’re ready. I’m leaning towards the pink one at the moment. Just click here to see how the phones are restored by Mr Mod Cons and check out the orange and cream one below…what do you think?
Last but certainly not least was the find of the day, a pair of the most luxurious maroon velvet trousers from Biba, they cost me…..wait for it…..a mere £10, I couldn’t believe it. They zip up, just, it’s a tight squeeze at the moment however they will provide me with the perfect incentive to carry on my healthier eating and exercise.
Roll on next month xx
NB Amendment to price of plate – £5 rather than £10.
