Wimbledon Car Boot Sale Haul

August 8, 2013

Wimbledon haul

My oldest daughter is at a drama club every morning this week, so I felt brave enough to visit the very busy Wimbledon Car Boot sale again with just one child. Yet again it did not disappoint and I came home with a rather impressive vintage haul!

Here’s what I bought…

3 1960s dresses,

1 1970s max dress,

3 1960s long line bras

1 pair of 1960s stockings

1 1940s sweater

1 1940s handbag

1 bangle (possibly Bakelite)


I am very very happy as everything I bought is in perfect condition, so no repairs or dry cleaning bills!

This time I decided to do a little video to show off my new vintage finds. I’ve never done any kind of vlog before so please bare with me while I get the hang of it!

I’ll try and do outfit posts with my new dresses very soon.

      It’s amazing! Much better than the weekend. It is soooo busy though. I always go with Lila and it’s a struggle getting the buggy round.

    Oooh, I miss England so very much. Have lived there a few times but alas, now, am too old for a work permit so must resign myself to my native country – Canada! Would love to go to a “car boot sale” at Wimbledon…thanks for letting me live vicariously. 🙂 – Chris @avintagelife.wordpress.com

      You should, it’s fantastic. Although a little crazy! If you spot me struggling with a buggy laden with vintage say hi!

    Fab video, well done! You found such a great selection and it’s lovely to see your enthusiasm about all your new purchases. I particularly love the longline bras – I’m obsessed with vintage lingerie. x
