Hello Lovelies! ^^

When it comes to any event happening in East London, Kerstin is my top insider. A couple of days ago, she posted about 2 Vintage events that were taking place around Shoreditch today. So although she couldn’t come ‘cause she was working, I had to check them out.  When I left the house this morning to go to the Vintage Pick ‘n Mix event, the sun was shining and there was not one cloud in the sky.

The event was in Hanbury Street, close to the Truman brewery where the Up Market is taking place every Sunday. The idea was that you would get one kilo of clothes for just 15 quid so I skimmed through endless racks of vintage clothes and ended up getting so many nice things. I was over 1kg because of the coat you can see in these pics (it’s green IRL, dunno why it looks grey on the photos…) so he gave me all together for £20! The coat is probably the best buy, it’s huge but I love it! PLUS the weather turned cloudy and colder later today so it saved me from freezing!

Back in Brick Lane a girl was handing out flyers for a second kilo sale I didn’t know about just off Brick Lane so I had to go and check it out too… and came out with another 2 bags for £15 cause they had a “buy one kg get one free” deal going on! How cool is that?

Initially I planned on going to the Dalston Vintage Fair too but with 2 kg of clothes in each hand I was only thinking about getting home. People must have thought I am homeless, carrying all my belongings with me haha!

Now I’ve got to hurry to get ready for Halloween, my costume is a last minute idea from yesterday, I’ll show you tomorrow! ;)



Hallo ihr Lieben!

War heute bei 2 verschiedenen Vintage Kilo Sales in Ost London! Die liebe Kerstin hat hier darüber gebloggt, da musste ich mir das ganze mal genauer anschauen. Wie ihr seht hab ordentlich was gefunden, unter anderem den Mantel auf diesen Bildern (der in Realität eigentlich grün ist und nicht grau… ^^).  Eigentlich wollte ich danach noch auf die Dalston Vintage Fair aber mit 4kg Klamotten am Arm wollt ich dann doch nur noch heim. Im Endeffekt hab ich für alles zusammen £35 bezahlt, nicht schlecht, wa? :D

Jetzt muss ich mich mal langsam für die Halloween Party heute Nacht fertig machen, mein Kostüm ist ein spontaner Einfall von gestern, ich zeig euch morgen was es nun geworden ist! ;)

I love vintage markets, and don't worry you're probably not the one carrying all that stuff with you haha. 2 months ago i went to flea market with my friends and got soo many thing for nothing of money and i carried those bags all across the town haha.
