While down south, Remy, mum and I popped to the Super Secret Second-hand Shop. This visit wasn't everything I was expecting. Usually we're the only ones there (the owner usually opens it especially for us - what can I say, we're good customers) and the place is an utter mess with treasures hidden amongst the rubbish.
This time there were four other people there and the owner had had a clean up; NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
I did get some precious buttons.
These from the 1920s:
These glass ones from the 1940s:
And these stunning 50s buttons:
I also picked up this 1950s hat that's in perfect condition:
And the most delightful ball of string for tying up presents that are wrapped in brown paper:
I also found 3 metres of vintage fabric:
that I'm going to use in this dress:
with this fabric as the 'bib':
Ooo, once we've moved to the South Island, I'll be able to go to the SSSS all the time.
