Boot sale finds

Just a few items I picked up from boot sale again this morning. I did buy more than just this but I didn't photograph it all as it was rather boring, camera film for 30p each, brand new Shu Uemura eyelashes for £1.00 and a large bottle of Lush tea tree toner for 50p.

Now onto the more interesting finds...

The iconic Kate Moss pansy print dress for Topshop. I was in so much shock to find this at a boot sale and as most of you know, this dress goes on Ebay for a pretty penny so I snapped this up right away for only £3.00. It is 3 sizes too big for me but once you pin the bust it isn't too bad.


I was really happy to find this rather morbid piece at the boot sale for only £1.00, as I've been after something like this for a little while now. It features a dead moth and flowers as if the moth is perching on them, but the only down side is that it does not have a loop to attach it to a chain as it broke. Any ideas on how I could attach this to a necklace?

  5. Wow, what great bargains! I love that KM dress! Where do you go for boot sales? My mum and I went to one on the way to Swanley, but it only had about 20 cars there! :( xx

  7. Hey! We went to one at Honeydale Farm, it's on the way to Swanley. It's not that big, but usually it's not that bad. Ooh, I might have to venture over to Hayes then! Thanks for letting me know :) xx

  8. You always get lovely things from boot sales!Also, you can get necklace bails with flat backs (they're usually leaf-shaped) which glue on to jewellery pieces etc, and are available on ebay. Is the moth charm silver? As I might have a spare silver bail which I could send you.

  9. Caroline- I tried to comment back but your blog isn't listed on your profile? Hehe.
    Thank you. I am obsessed with going to boot sales, I love finding pieces that I wouldn't find in store.

    Is this the necklace bail?
    http://ny-image3.etsy.com/il_fullxfull.79121219.jpg the charm is gold (although in some light it looks silver) I tried looking on ebay but couldn't find any that looked like the photo. xx

  11. Caroline- Ahh :) Thank you for the link. Might buy them, bit unsure at the moment as the charm is see through so you'll be able to see the attachment thingy and glue through the glass. xx
