So on Saturday I was at the Funk Fair in Bruntsfield. It’s not on very often so that may explain why I seem to gone a wee bit over the top and bought so much. I also appear to have had a bit of a cream theme happening…
1. Two blank globes
The guy who sold us these wouldn’t tell us what they were (said we had to guess) but we figured they are from an old Louis Vuitton window shop display.
We couldn’t fit the big one into the bag we brought so the other half carried it around all day – it was certainly a conversation piece with everyone we met! Lots of people were suggesting that we could draw the countries on to it or make it into a light – but we think we’ll keep them as they are as they’re more intriguing that way.
2. 1960s Anglepoise lamp
I can’t remember the name of the stand I bought this from – but the woman was very lovely and friendly. This lamp needs a little tlc but it’s working condition and I’ve always fancied one for my writing bureau. Have to say it’s much heavier than I expected but that’s to be expected with vintage.
3. Milk bottle and butterfly ring
Loved everything that Victoria Berg and Campbell Firth were selling at their stand – I wanted to buy so much more but this was as far as my budget would stretch to. Will definitely be on the lookout for them at future markets.
4. Vintage signs
These cost pennies – which is my favourite kind of find. Think I’m going to put the ‘cloakroom’ one above our coat hooks in the hall – and the ‘lounge’ one, well, I’ll probably put that in the lounge 😉
No idea when the next Funk Fair will be – but you can guarantee I’ll be there – hope it’s not for a while though as I’m totally broke now!
