Unusual in Uckfield

A rather purply theme to these finds, 20p each from a jumble sale at a primary school in Uckfield. Haven’t been to Uckfield for many years, but driving through, I was reminded of just how many charity shops it has, and how I used to find some good things, including wonderfully-patterned retro curtains, there. Must go back at some point and do the rounds. Anyway, from the jumble: dark navy blue satin wraparound cocktail frock with immense shoulder pads; gothy drop-waisted purple handkerchief-hem number; short kilt (Deborah, is a Burns Night supper planned again this January?); green canvas satchel, the most useful thing of the lot. Plus a white shirt with large silver military-style buttons (to be cut off and used on something else) and a stray long black dress-sash.
