I wasn’t going to buy anything…but I slipped! We never even got as far as Barry’s this time, we had a Market Virgin with us, and things took a loooong time lol
A smallish group of 6, but we flexed and fluctuated, came and went, all day…except when happily ensconced noshing noodles at Mount Fuji.
My downfall started on about the second stall we visited, where I found this rather Liberty-ish jersey for just £3/m. Well, it would have been rude not to buy it at that price.
I’m planning for it to become this
V1405, Tracy Reese. I dunno, it says ‘red’ to me!
Then I got a few zips, buttons and lace. The lace is only 20p/m, the zips were 10p each. Yes, 10p. Gotta love the markets!
After making a leisurely circuit of the main market hall, we drifted round ‘The Row’ outside…and of course, being Tuesday, the Jersey Lady was there. Yoink! We filled up several carriers between us.
Each of these were only £2 a piece, and apparently some of the sweater knits on sale today were ex-River Island. The fine green knit on the left will have to become a lightweight summer cardigan.
We then had a delicious lunch before going on a serious hunt in Fancy Silks Store for some historical re-enactment projects for Karen. This took some time.
All too soon, everyone had to dash for trains, and I had to dash for a vodka.
Oh yes, and the nice young man we randomly asked to take this pic turned out to be one of my ex pupils!
PS Take an admiring look at Pamela’s fabulous tapestry coat [on the right]. We all had a little stroke at it!
