So Kim & I did a stall at a vintage & retro fair in the Masonic Hall, St Leonards (great venue). Sadly, it wasn’t terribly busy, and we didn’t make a lot of money – just about enough to cover our costs and make it worthwhile – but I did clear a few things out of my wardrobe (the mistake buys, the too-smalls and uncomfortables, the things I am simply bored with) and saw a few of my Hastings friends. And of course, I managed to make a pretty good start on refilling any vacated bedroom-space with a few gains from fellow stallholders. Long black dress with cut-out lace detailing and flared hem, very slinky (£4 at the end of the day); dark pink Debenhams crepe frock (from Kim, a swap for a navy blue and white skirt and a sailor suit); denim dress with puffed sleeves and tulip skirt (£5, a sample from a local dress-maker/designer); Cuban-heeled Chelsea boots (part of a deal involving two of my dresses). The denim dress is a little oddly-shaped but I’m liking it with a wide elastic belt to hold it in place and maintain a waistline.
