Flea Market find of the year!


As part of blogtoberfest Sophie thought it would be fun to host "Flea Market find of the Year". My entry to this is something that when I first blogged it here, I had already proclaimed it to be my flea market find of the year. To most of you it may be boring, but I believe that when you've specifically been looking for an item for ages at the oppy and then find it and it's A) exactly what you were after and B) fits like it was tailored for you and C) half price, then it's fate really isn't it. So, this is it. My grey light wool coat, to take to France. My Flea Market find of the year.

I can just see you strolling along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in that coat avec une baret sur ta tete. (My high school frech is a bit rusty, who knows if I got that right)

A beautiful coat, you'll be lovely! I've bought a few thrift store sewing machines I dearly adore.

Isn't it great when you find exactly what you are looking for. What a fabulous find, you will need it in Paris, it gets mighty cold there! Hope you have beautiful gloves, scarf and hat as well! Don't forget nice warm socks too to keep your feet warm. Sorry, I sound like a mother/grandmother, but I am speaking from experience.

That is indeed a find. The right thing, size and price, those planets never align in my world! I don't seem to have any luck with the opshops lately. I think I just need to go to more. The statistically I will have to have a win.

How fantastic to find THE thing when you have been searching. I bet it looks great on and you will be the envy of all those chic Parisians as you stroll about the Champs-Élysées and the like!
