Classic Car Boot Sale

I’m playing catch up with my blog entries at the moment. Its not like I’ve stopped buying and donating, I really haven’t, its just everyday life got massively hectic. But I’ve embraced a bit of modernity and just bought myself a tablet – reconditioned, naturally – and its already transformed my life after two days use.

This post is nearly a month late. I went to the Classic Car Boot Sale on the South Bank in London on 14 March 2015 with my husband and Isabella. Its a good job they came because had I been on my own I would have spent much more.

The event was a superb collection of vintage and retro fashion, homewares, music, stylish people, and of course classic cars. It was a pretty chilly day, which did affect my browsing. Couldn’t keep away from the furry, sheepskin and woollen coats. But I couldn’t justify another coat.

My first stop was ‘Gloria’, a ‘unique mobile vintage clothing boutique’ which has featured on George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces (Facebook – gloriadressingupbox, Twitter – @GloriaPopUpShop). I was captivated by the gorgeous array of vintage clothes, but also at the prospect of shopping in a bohemian horse box converted into a shop and a home. I found this gorgeous genuine 1950s handmade dress.

My second purchase was a weather-influenced one, which I wore on top of my jacket for the rest of that day. I bought it from Vintage at Narnia’s (Facebook – vintageatnarnia) stall. I’m not quite sure what you would call it. A poncho-cardigan-cape combination. I love it anyway.

Would have loved to stay longer but there was only so much time my non-secondhand obsessed companions could look at classic cars and eat macaroni cheese in the cold. I’ll definitely be looking out for the next event.
