|Uncle Tom's Cabin by H. Beecher Stowe and Faraway Island by Angus MacVicar|
I'm sure A's mum has recommended Uncle Tom's Cabin to me before so I thought I'd pick it up. Faraway Island just seemed like a nice children's book that needed a new home (look here too see what the dust cover was like - isn't it fab?).
|Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb|
Another Bancroft Classic! With a particularly trippy cover - woohoo! Yeah, there was no way I was leaving this behind!
|Bernese Adventure by Jane Shaw|
|Texas Trouble by Grant Maxwell|
Texas Trouble - just sooo 1950s, so of course I took it home.
|The Story of Nelson - Vintage Ladybird Book|
Vintage Ladybird Books always come home with me - especially the over-loved ones. I can't help myself. Plus I learn so much from them!
|Choose Your Own Adventure and Mystery Books|
I loved books like this when I was a kid, so I got these out of pure nostalgia for those days when I used to sit with pen and paper working out the puzzles in a book (and then occasionally cheating and looking up the answers).
|Care Bears Annual|
The rule is that anything I remember watching as a kid comes home with me and I watched a helluva lot of Care Bears cartoons. I'm pretty sure either my sister or I had this annual the first time round.
|The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters|
I watched the Night Watch on BBC iPlayer the other day which is also by Sarah Waters. I've yet to read any of her books but I have seen the adaptation of Tipping the Velvet, which I loved and I do own Fingersmith on DVD too but I haven't gotten around to watching it so far.
|T. G. Green Mixing Bowl|
Another thing I have real difficulty leaving behind are big mixing bowls as they remind me of my Nan and they're so nice to use when baking. This is my first coloured one!
|The Backstamp for those of you who are interested|
It's a little worn but I don't mind - I can't get too many of these bowls though as they take up so much space and our kitchen is tiny!
|Wool Blazer - £3.99|
I also got this lovely wool blazer for £3.99.
And look - it's a Pendleton! It's not a 49er unfortunately, but still a quality make. Not sure of the date of it - the label looks like the 1970s one judging by the Vintage Guild's Label Resource but I'm not sure it isn't more recent. I love it anyway though and it fits rather well.
That's all for my haul! It's a good job I've got one of those wheely granny bags. I feel like I've not done this well for ages so I'm super pleased.
Last night A and I took photos for the first part of my Vintage Guide to Liverpool, so hopefully I'll get Part One up in the next few days.
