Treasure hunt & bargain buys

By C.Elizabeth

On Sunday, Andrew, his dad and I went to an antique fair near where we live. It was the first time I ever went to one here in the UK. I saw so many beautiful things that I could easily have spent a real fortune in there! Though, I'm one who thinks there's no need to spend a big amount of money on things just for the sake of it... Which is why I always keep my eyes open for some good bargains! I was especially lucky on that day as I bought several items, all antique and vintage.

Here's what I found:

An antique silver jewellery box.




The most beautiful apron I have ever seen.




A lovely vintage dress.




A very cute bow necklace.




Some pearls.




And a very pretty brooch.

What I love the most about Greece must be the friendly and welcoming people, the beautiful beaches, nice wine, and beautiful nature. Pretty much everything;) I'm a big fan of Greece, if you haven't been there, I would absolutely recommend it:)
