Vintage Mash


Yesterday was a perfect day for the monthly Stockport Vintage Village event
The sun shone, the scooter clubs came along and the music was fantastic.


We met up with many Instagram friends including Ericka and Phil
who travelled over from Sheffield


I found some fabulous knitwear. 
This Scotch Wool Shop shetland wool cardigan


and this super gorgeous handknitted waistcoat was
£5 from Make Do & Mend


Garbo Vintage & Antiques had this floral cotton smock.
Just my thing at the moment and I've styled it
with a charity shop find top and the mad tights
friend Vix gave me last year




The red and green polyester dresses came from  The Queens Drawers 
who I get a lot of my clobber off and they are teamed up with 
£1.50 cardigans of Todmorden secondhand market.


Look at Mr Dapper Chap in his new overcoat
off Mick at Garbo Vintage & Antiques


 He hardly looks like the wandering welder in this lot.


 The little hair clips on Lollipop Vintages stall reminded 
me of being a little girl and mum putting them in my hair


We couldn't come home without a pile of 
cakes off Stuart Thornley Cake Designs, it 
would have been rude to leave them behind.


My favourite find of the fair was this 50's Barkcloth
skirt off Jane Hamilton and right next to Jane I picked up from Sheila's Store
this handknitted top which goes perfectly with the skirt


MASHing different patterns, era's, styles,textures and colours together 
is my favourite pastime right now.  The more MASHed the better.

Even though I look like I've blown the budget you will be pleased to know
that I came home £16 in pocket and with the red and green dress for free.
You see I had taken a pile of clobber with me to sell on.
I do love vintage shopping with the added advantage of knowing I am doing my 
bit for the enviroment by recycling over and over the same clothes. Yay !



I'M JOINING IN TODAY WITH SOME OF MY FRIENDS OVER AT

  3. Good to see Stockport - happy memories of music at The Bulls Head, etc. years ago. My husband and his friend worked at a greengrocers stall just outside the market hall - when they were schoolboys more than 50 years ago! Proper vintage, ha ha.

    You found some lovely bargains - and your husband is a dapper chap indeed. Everything you both buy seems to fit so well, and your outfits are so inspiring.
