They've opened shops down west side, will all the cacti find a home?

This weekend, as a little celebration for finishing my (only!) exam, I went to the Sheffield Vintage Fair, which turned out to be a sale special! Anyway, I bought a few pretty things & I thought I'd share them with you!
The first piece I bought was this pretty, sheer blouse! It's very delicate and is a lovely pastel (of course) lilac colour, the lady on the stall said it was an original 1960s one, but I'm not too sure whether to believe that or not, I'll have to wait to ask my mum & see when she thinks it's from.
It has some unbelievably cute sparkly purple buttons too, and a sweet little collar.
I also bought this super cute/super tacky/super amazing brooch! I am actually in love with it, it's too cute for words, although sadly the picture doesn't do it much justice. It has sequins, pearly beads and white, cream and pink flower beads.  I LOVE IT. And judging from the clasp on the back, I do think it's actually quite old.
I bought this scarf from the same stall as the blouse for £1, I just couldn't resist the pretty pastel colours! (Even after I told the person I was with I wasn't going to buy any more scarves as I have way too many already).
This might be my favourite purchase, I think! I'm absolutely positive I saw it at the last fair I went to in September, and as the name of the stall holder was really familiar I'm pretty sure it was the same one! I really regretted not buying it when I first saw it then, but I'm so pleased I have it now! It's such an unusual print, I'm contemplating hanging it on my wall in some way when I'm not wearing it because it's just so beautiful!
Like I said, I've finished my exams & lectures don't start again until Monday (which also happens to be my 20th birthday, urghhh), so I'm hopefully going to take pictures of all the things I want to post about & then schedule more posts! Yay! I'm off for a meal with my Literature babes now, see you soon!
