This month's Finder is an avid regular visitor at The Vintage Village we first got to know via Twitter, where she goes by the name of @LittlestMy or in 'real' life, Beth Taylor.
We are great admirers of her distinctive personal style and impeccable taste. In fact, it was Beth's posts of photos of her super-enviable personal finds which inspired us to create our Visitors' Gallery!
Anyway, let's allow Beth to introduce herself:
"I am an ex-ballet dancer, drummer and record shop worker whose finest moment was recording a session for John Peel. I am now a teaching assistant, bookshop worker and tea drinker who loves most things pre-owned or handmade. To be found either at school, the allotment or in a corner reading."
We are so chuffed that she agreed to take on September's Finding mission - especially as it was our special First Birthday Bash Fair! - and I'm sure you'll agree that every single thing she's picked is a winner!
1970s Sony portable television, £20 from Donald & Miss June:
My other half spotted this little beauty at Donald & Miss June (named after the stallholders' neighbours who are a stylish 1950s couple). It is a portable TV from the 70s to take camping!
Handmade tea dress, £22 from Daisy Garforth:
You cannot beat a polka dot, especially on a tea dress!
1970s Fisher Price record player, £18 from All Our Yesterdays:
All Our Yesterdays never disappoints. Wayne had a wonderful 1971 Fisher Price working record player that seriously tempted me but next time I looked, it had been bought"
Handmade 'Home' framed picture, £10 from Time for Tea and Cake:
Another favourite stall, Time For Tea and Cake, has a great selection. This would make a fab present for someone who has just moved house.
1960s lace sheath dress, £30 from Village Vintage Clothing:
I am a regular at Village Vintage Clothing who have the most gorgeous dresses including this dreamy lace number that has a small train from the waist. Another missed opportunity as it had gone when I returned!!
1950s French doll, £25 from All Our Yesterdays:
Every time I visit this stall, I always look at two beatnik girl dolls - this one is rockin' the tennis racket!
Embroidery hoops, £5-6 from Oooh Betty!:
Oooh Betty! was right up my street with a combination of vintage and craft items. These embroidery hoops would make lovely presents.
Vintage kitchen utensils, £2.50 each from Agnes Darling:
It wouldn't be right unless I mentioned my favourite stall Agnes Darling! A welcome return and all their profits today were donated to Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. I could have bought all these vintage kitchen utensils.
Vintage wicker basket, £10 from Standing on the Landing:
This basket caught my eye at Standing on the Landing as my daughter has a miniature version. An elderly lady also looking mentioned that she took her cookery ingredients to school in one!
Vintage sandwich flags, £2 from Oooh Betty!:
I managed to purchase these great retro sandwich flags for a bargain £2! Just need a tea party now...
1960s coffee cups, £10 the set from Agnes Darling.
