I love that Dolly Parton quote!
The reason I used it is because I went to a vintage fair on Sunday, and I just couldn't believe the prices. I've ranted about this before, how shops like Beyond Retro are taking advantage of the vintage obsession and charging extortionate prices for things. The fair itself was lovely, to look around at old furs, hats, jewellery, shoes...but although some people were doing bargain prices on jewellery and £10 sale rails, everything else seemed to start at £30 and go on up!
The charity shops in Brighton aren't as cheap as in smaller towns, and there are no jumble sales to get the dirt cheap prices (although I'm still working on trying to set one up) so if you want to just buy vintage it ends up being very expensive!
Here's the dress I wore to the fair, which I'd found on Friday in my local Oxfam for £7.99, along with a Bacardi cocktail set for £2.99 (that was a price I liked!)
This picture is telling me I need to clean my mirror, it's filthy!
*Random doughnut picture alert*
We bought Krispy Kreme doughnuts on Saturday, look how lovely this one was:
