Camel and cream

More finds from the Arlington jumble sale: reversible Aquascutum camel overcoat/trenchcoat – wool on the outside, gaberdine on the inside (or vice versa, depending on which way you look at it); Irish woollen waffle-pattern cardigan-coat/dressing gown (again, open to intepretation, but a fine garment for wearing around the house on a cold day); as-new (but slightly squashed-looking) suede desert boots for D; plus four oval plates, vintage J&G Meakin stoneware. Can’t remember what I paid for all this lot – it was a few weeks ago – but it was certainly well under a fiver. Am wishing the reversible coat was a bit shorter, though – it’s somewhat tent-like and slightly overwhelmingly camel-coloured on its woollen side, and old-lady on the mac-side. Ah well, the Usual Shop doesn’t always get it exactly right.
