I know you've all been longing to see what goodies I came back from Melbourne with!
Without further ado....
When I arrived, Sarah asked what I most wanted to find on our travels...
"Leopard...and sequins.......and all manner of gloriarse delights..." I cried!
Well, indeed, I found my dream leopard coat at Camberwell Markets!
It's minus buttons, but who fecking cares when it's a dream leopard coat?!
Sarah presented me with this deliciously revamped mid century lamp!
Doesn't it look fine on our revamped formica table (one of a nest of 3)?!
I picked up a fair amount of clothing, including this modern jacket and cardi....
....these divoon frocks and Mrs Slocombe-esque suit and blouse from Audrey Scarlett Vintage....
...and these incredible frocks from Fossil Vintage...
Also a nice selection of tin, from Camberwell Markets (Queenie!), an ice bucket for our collection, some little Pyrex dishes, a couple of melamine plates and some cake forks from various op and vintage shops...
More tin from the markets.. I think I'm a bit obsessed...
The purple maxi, left, fits like a dream, and was from Friperie, Sarah gave me the 70's coat/dress (which I am imagining was once part of a pantsuit...or maybe it had hotpants!) and the orange frock was from a gorgeous new friend, Andrea, of Enjoyit, whom we met at Camberwell markets!
Who could pass up a Frida drink bottle?!
Two opshopped scarves underneath
The green hearts I scored on Brunswick St, and the splendid red ones are from Catch a Thief.
Bow and earrings opshopped
The ballerina scarf ring was from Grandma Funk's stall at Love Vintage.
It's an almost perfect match to a clip on earrings and brooch/pendant set I have!
I was rather thrilled to find this hat case at a vintage shop in Violent Town....I seem to recall having one in my Goth days, and G remembers it too, but no idea what happened to it!
This one is a sweetheart, and I managed to get it home as extra baggage with no damage!
In Violent Town we had the sweetest experience as we were about to drive up...a gent of the older variety came and tapped on the window, and asked if we were looking for opshops; we said, yes, but we've just raided the only one you have...he then directed us to do a "u bolt" and go to a vintage shop around the corner where I found this case and the ice bucket seen above!
Bless, you lovely gent!
These 70's sandals were opshopped in Bright with lucious Dee!
Fark, don't know about you, but I'm exhausted from all that linkage!
I'll sign off with this pic from whilst I was waiting for my cab to the airport...
