No more classes and a few goodies to celebrate

Today was the last day of classes for this term, so to celebrate I went to the large antique market. I was expecting to pick up a few more postcards and some depression glass but I ended up buying some completely different things. (Apologies for the blurry pictures of me. I need a camera with auto-focus....)



OK so this one isn't too different from my normal purchases. It is a magazine from 1953 and was only $2!!! It does have quite an odor though....



I was so surprised by this little dress. I have never bought (or even seen many) clothes at this antique market before but then I saw this darling dress and I really wanted it. I wasn't sure if it would fit but there was no where to try it on. So I pulled it on over my clothes. A sales lady walked by when it was halfway over my head. I was worried she was going to yell at me but she just laughed and walked away. So end result? Super cute dress for only $25 that fits me perfectly! (I am not sure about its vintage. I think it is handmade but newer than it looks)


I love this hat! It is from the 1930's and, although not in the best condition, it is completely wearable. For $18 I just couldn't leave it! Now if only I can find a way to keep it from falling off my head.....(it needs an elastic strap or a hat pin or something)



After the antique market, I headed over to the outlet mall across the street. I saw a few cute shoes but figured if they hurt after just a few steps then maybe, just maybe, they might not be good for walking in. But the mall has a Royal Doulton outlet store so I had to stop and drool for a bit. I still couldn't afford anything but this teacup set caught my eye. It is their 1930 Polka Rose 3-Piece Set. No wonder I love it so much. It would make a lovely birthday gift (Mom, you reading this :) ?)
