Southsea Flea Market

2 Mar

Today I popped into Southsea Flea Market on Waverley Road to have a quick rummage amongst the bric-a-brac. I wasn’t looking for anything in particular, I just like to have a gander and see if I stubble across any bargains, old plates or vintage fabrics etc.  Today was my lucky day as hiding at the back of the hall perched on top of a radiator was a pair of GORGEOUS Vintage curtains in my favourite colour (Orange!) It’s one of those heart stopping moments where you find something you absolutely love and can’t quite believe someone else hasn’t snapped it up already! At £10 for the pair which are in fabulous condition I simply had to run to the cash point and purchase them immediately.

I initially thought I could use the fabric to make some cushions or something but they were in such a good condition that I couldn’t bare to put a pair of scissors to them! Luckily for me they are the perfect fit for the window in our living room! Groovy or what?!

    Complete grooviness, we missed out on that fair although we were mooching along Albert Rd collecting up our own bargains!
