Something that we simply CANNOT resist.
Something that no matter how many we have, when we see another one we have to buy it.
Whether it's fashion related or some sort of collectable, we are each irresistibly drawn to one thing that we have to own. To have. To possess. To collect.
Or maybe it's more than one thing...? A genre. A brand. A type. A colour?
For me, it's 50s black 'hairpin leg' stuff. I NEVER leave this stuff behind.
And 50s kidney-shaped little dishes, particularly in black
More black stuff...not that I buy everything that is black and 50s, but a lot of what I like seems to be black!
Big 70s platform shoes. Proper ones are quite hard to find now, so if I find a pair that fit me I snap them up, pronto.
Now there's lots of other things I like, of course, and other things that I'll buy the odd few of....like furs, mid-century furniture, lucite boxes, 50s lamps, pyrex, compacts, and cigarette cases, but the pics above are my absolute must-haves.
So tell me dear readers, what are your vintage weaknesses??
What vintage items can't you live without?? If you have a blog, please show us!
