portobello road oxfam and designers guild
Platinum and diamond Edwardian pin picked up on Portobello Road.
Vintage Gucci wallet, 99p at Help the Aged in Cheshire – the elderly lady at the till imagined ‘pounds’ to be a misprint and sold it to me for the pence version. I let her. Because I’m bad. Bless.
Complete works of “Artemus Ward”. London. 1893. From my favourite Bond Street bookstore – Oxfam.
It pays to be discerning when it comes to second-hand perusing. Yesterday I brought home two Thonet chairs for a fiver each. I plan on distressing them and making cushions with fabric from the Designers Guild. Fingers crossed I wont run out of steam before the project’s complete. Because, you know, sometimes I do.
