As I mentioned in previous posts, due to the weak dollar in England, I didn’t buy much on my trip to the UK. I’m a cheapy and everything seemed really expensive. I did mention, however, that I found a few trinkets at the Portabello Road Flea Market.
All the little bits and pieces pictured above were found at Portabello Road Flea Market. The cool bottle was found at a little antique store in Harbech.
I found this cute Cath Kidston floral tote in Oxford along with a cute oilcloth scissors holder and scissors (not shown).
This was a little Cath Kidston knock off oilcloth tote I found in Portabello Road.
More Cath Kidston cuties. A deck of playing cards and a shower cap.
Lovely petite floral painting in a gorgeous frame. Found at an Oxford charity shop.
Found these two vintage books there as well. The Architecture book has some cool pictures and the French-English dictionary is the perfect size for my pocket and will come in handy next time I take a trip to France.
This really cute vintage (antique?) pewter engraved flask. Not something I typically buy, but I was drawn to the lovely engraving and the price was right.
Some other things I bought, but didn’t get pictures of are, a pair of Laura Ashley pillowcases, a couple tops for me, a petite point purse and a black ruffley petticoat skirt.
So, now for the giveaway part of this post. I was so tickled to find a Cath Kidston store right in the London airport, that I decided to buy a few goodies to use as a giveaway for my lovely blog readers. Yeah!
Here’s what I found for y’all.
Mini oil cloth tote, thank you notes, labels and stickers, cute pencils and pencil case. I am also including a little Cath Kidston magazine/catalog.
As an added bonus, I will also include one of the antique brooches I picked up at Portabello Road Flea Market. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post. You can just say hi, or tell me about something fun you did this summer. I will draw a name at random on Friday morning. Easy, right?
I’ll be back soon with some more vintage goodies I’ve picked up recently. Until then, Happy Labor Day and I hope you all have a fabulous week! Kids going back to school on Wednesday for me. TTFN!
