Cornbury Festival 2013

So I got myself a free ticket to Cornbury... I say free, I actually worked rather hard for it! 

I worked on a vintage stall raising money for Helen and Douglas House. H&D provide hospice and palliative care to children and young adults, for more info visit www.helenanddouglas.org.uk.

I worked the Friday and Saturday; I sold lots of vintage goodies, bought myself some vintage goodies and the highlight for me was seeing the Overtones and Imelda May!! 

Lots of people ask me why I don't sell vintage or do something similar for a living...I often ask myself this... Well now I have my answer... I'm too lazy! It's a lot of hard work and can be quite stressful, I like my academic, nine to five with rounders at lunchtimes!! Ill stick to the buying!! :D

Here it is in pics...

 Fridays outfit.




Vintage goodies.


Saturdays outfit.


The fabulous Imelda May!! 

And finally my best bargain... Pale blue 60s mod suit in mint condition!! 


I can't wait to wear it!! Tad hot here in the UK at the mo!!

Perhaps you could do Consultations on the side!? *winks* You look Vintage Lovely... and yes, the Buying is so much more Enjoyable than the Selling... tho' I do both now that I'm in semi-retirement and following my Bliss. Must find a way after all to fund those Buying trips now that I'm in Senior-land! *LOL*
