In the shade

Not quite such a momentous afternoon of collecting as the previous weekend’s activities, but last Saturday’s expedition to Cooksbridge for a jumble sale was worthwhile. Most ridiculous purchase: two-tone 1960s man’s velvet jacket (£2) which had last belonged to a bloke in a retro garage/pysch band, apparently (despite D answering to this description too, he has passed on this, however). Most-needed purchase: a huge parasol for the garden (also £2), not quite the colours I would have otherwise chosen but very jolly and seasidey. Most useful purchases: three dead plain, neutrally-coloured vests (30p each), pictured with two pairs of jodphurs for my mother’s Pony Club fundraiser sale. Most misguided purchases: beaded black Indian vest top, gingham cropped trousers and ’80s leg o’mutton sleeved blouse with Peter Pan collar, all too small for me but at least only costing me 30p each. The trousers are on their way to a swish, the other two items are in the car boot sale bag.
