Newly aquired.

1960s daisy brooch: £2
pieces mint green bag: spartoo
1970s braid: gift from mama
1950s baby girl dress: £2.00
ice cream soda bottle: £1.50

I think the thrifting gods must be smiling on me at the moment; there's some months where I can go through finding my fair share of bits to sell, but nothing that catches my eye enough to stay with me. This month has been different and I've added quite a few items to my already expansive collection of old bits & bobs. Mum and I paid a trip to Bygone Times for the first time in a few months on Monday and left with a basket full! She treated me to the little brooch and bottle, both of which I really love. She also picked up some braid from the car boot (which I snagged and added the rest to the stall), and I couldn't resist keeping the 1950s girls dress for later years.

I also had my Spartoo order delivered yesterday. I ordered a pair of simple black flat shoes too but they're too small for me (darn my half sized feet!) so they're being sent back for the larger size. I also bought the little bag I featured in a wishlist not too long ago. I'd say it's perfect with a little dress in the warmer weather, but it's been throwing it down for three days now so I'm not sure when I'll use it! It's pretty all the same, though.
