Love your finds - I want your MJ and TM photos for my next book - you are a great example to us all!

Cool finds. How often do you check out these thrift places?

Thanks for reading. I'm sure Ellie & Eric need to do more thrifting.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi kate-oh thats lovely-help yourself, no problem and thanks so much!

Hi ellie-I thrift on average 2-4 times a week in charity shops and 1-2 a week at the boot sales, although I don't always buy things on every visit!
I think ellie and eric have other things on their mind!!

That 1st dress is really cute! I envy how you fit in all dresses, my shoulders are too big compared to my waist, so I can't really wear dresses with sleeves.

Sharon Rose said...

AlicePleasance said...

I heart the first dress :-)

Nothing Elegant said...

So many cute finds! It must be wonderful to thrift shop in such a stylish city. The Marc Jacobs is lovely. I have a very silly question...what is a boot sale?

Sharon Rose said...

Hi alicepleasance-thanks a lot!!

Hi nothing elegant-thats lovely, thanks!! I think you call them 'garage sales', generally held in a vast area of open space and everyone sells their wares brought from their cars and put on to a table or the floor-haha, very addictive, I go every week generally!

tanya said...

awesome finds! i love the red dress in the first picture, you look amazing in it!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi tanya-thanks for stopping by with your lovely comment!

Sal said...

Holy moly. Maybe I can fly you over to the states for a little local hunting. I've never found anything so choice on my vintage forays. Good work, lady!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi sal-haha, that would be great fun-thanks a lot!!

Pamcasso said...
