Vintage shopping



So yesterday I was walking my dog ( in the rain .. ) and lifting my spirits with a little window shopping. The first thing that made me smile were these "Dorothy" shoes from Shock for 75 €.



As I continued through the grey streets of Stockholm I suddenly came upon this most delightful little shop !



The name of the shop was "Old Touch" ...



They had sooo many beautiful things...



Actually I became quite "blind" ...



I wanted to give myself a little "pick me up" for the day, but what ever would I choose ?? Also my budget was quite limited, but then ...



I found these ! This sweet brooch with matching earrings, to wear on a with my grey fitted jacket or say my green 80s/40s blouse was successfully bargained down to 10 € ! Usually I never were clips as I need a bit of "dangle", but these were just irresistible and look quite pretty on me ;)

What delightfully wonderful finds, you lucky gal!

Thank you very much for your lovely comments! To answer your questions...

Truth be told I'm not able to actively follow every single blog on my blog roll each day, but I do try to get most of them (as well as several others that aren't listed because they're not strictly vintage related) at least once a week. It's a bit of work, a labour of love, I admit, but I don't mind in the least, for many of the people behind those sites are wonderfully dear blogging friends of mine :)

As to how best to find out if someone replies to a comment you've made on a blog other than your own, in the case of Blogger blogs (and possibly some other blogging systems like TypePad), at the bottom of the page below the comment box, you should see a line of text that says "Subscribe by email". If you click on that line it allows you to subscribe via email to any further comments that are made on that particular post. I've used it myself before for comments I've left on other peoples' blogs and must say it's a very handy feature.

I hope that helps you, sweet dear. Please don't hesitate to ask anything else - I'm always eager to help a fellow vintage lover! :)

Big hugs!
♥ Jessica
