This weekend I actually left East Oxford (#eastside) and went to Headington to have a snoop around the charity shops. There are about six/seven on the one road so makes for a very easy sweep!
It was payday on Friday so I had the money in my pocket, I had a lovely green vintage dress on I’d bought in Oxfam Cowley road the week before, for inspiration – I was set. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find one thing I really liked and only bought a card in British Heart Foundation. It annoys me that when you have no money you see so many cool things and when you have it – nothing. I think my boyfriend was quite happy, as my charity shop snoop was much shorter than usual. He usually spends his time hovering in the book section whilst I try on a million and one things.
After we finished we went for a quick drink in the White Hart before heading to town. Bad idea, it was too busy so I got myself some tasty food to cook, a bottle of gin (well it was Saturday night!) and headed back to the safety of Iffley Road!
Below are some photos from my snoop and some vintage pieces I thought were groovy, but not for me. Next weekend (if the rain stays off) I’m hoping to head to Summertown – let me know if you’ve bought any vintage gems in Oxford recently. I loved this from @pritchardkate on Twitter bought from the Summertown Helen and Douglas House. (click on her Instagram link to see)
