I haven’t done any serious vintage shopping since Margate but here are four pieces that I’ve recently picked up while out and about in London.
1 – Hand-hammered brass necklace purchased at a charity shop (thrift store in the States). It has the ethnic/tribal feel that I love in jewelry + it’s brass (I LOVE brass).
2 – Re-purposed vintage skirt from Pop Boutique in Covent Garden. Skirts are where I tend to like my prints so I couldn’t resist this comfy cotton number. It’s definitely going to Madrid and Sicily with me!
3 – A social commentary cartoon from 1924 that depicts two women in the “pre-bobbed period” – see damsels in distress – to “and today” where they appear to be liberated, chatting it up in their short skirts and pants while checking out portraits of different men. This was too good to pass (purchased at Portobello Road).
4 – Ceramic vase that has a great sand texture on the top half. I bought it at a charity shop, and am pretty sure that it’s not vintage, but since it was thrifted I figured it was still worth sharing.
Do you have any recent show & tells?
