Pale and interesting

usualshop 020Jumble sale season has started again, and how better for it to kick off than a Lib Dems jumble in Ringmer (more on this to follow)? Spent less than £5, with most things 30p an item, and amassed some fine finds – that’s a good economic policy. Am liking this Arran-style woolly jumper, for a start, and on a similarly rustic note, the cream woollen wrap-dress in the next picture is rather interesting, if a little bit big. I’m also having difficulties deciding whether it is a dress or a coat, usually an indication that it’s not a garment I know how to wear. The green tweed is very definitely a coat; a bit big and shapeless, sadly, but its buttons could be moved. And it had a flyer for the Lewes Guitar Festival in a pocket, which reassures me that it has come from a discerning home. For redistribution: one very small Dotty P satin-dotted cream high-necked blouse, of ’80s vintage; for the bin, a spotted dress I picked up for Kim, but which turned out (in brighter light than in the dingy village hall) to be badly stained.
