All tagged shopping for bargains

I've been de-cluttering.........

My main rule was and still is: asking myself if I have worn this item in the last 2 years, does it fit, and do I feel fabulous wearing it? If the answer is no, it gets binned and so an awful lot of clothes went to other homes........

My favourite new but vintage look summer dress.

OK I own up, I came out for my four month sojourn in Australia with a half empty suitcase!  I'm sure you know by now that my absolute passion is digging around markets, vintage stalls, op shops/charity shops and independents.  Especially here where the climate is more suitable for ferreting around market stalls and where hand made clothes and vintage pieces can often be found for a song, as well as being individual & quite different to something you'd find at home.  

A vintage necklace.

I am like a magpie nowadays. Always on the search for something up-cycled, re-cycled, retro and vintage.  I so enjoy owning something that isn't brand new, hasn't been mass marketed or made in China..... and something that has memories, has been put together with love and, most of all,  unique, eco and often much, much cheaper than something designer or new!
