A few weeks ago I attended the Vintage Roundup Fair, held in the Lone Star, a former Texan-themed restaurant in all its pseudo-adobe gloriousness.
You might recognise the Two Squirrels, who are about to open a new shop in Milton:
I was very restrained and only bought a starfish brooch from them, which I forgot to photograph.
I was trying to save money for Operation FOSSIC (Fabulous Opshops and Secondhand Shops In Canterbury - stay tuned for my next post!)
A rack of Squirrel treasure.
One of the stalls had a fantastic hat collection.
In unrelated news, I made a crochet hook holder.
I couldn't believe how well it turned out, because I made up the pattern as I went along.
It cost me absolutely nothing, as the fabric was a gift and the bias binding was from my nana's stash.
Having just returned from week-long operation FOSSIC, I have lots of photography to catch up on.
I bought so many thrifty finds that I will have to break them down into several posts.
Oh, and I met the gorgeously inspirational Helga Von Trollop - details soon!
