The next couple items are a bit sentimental because I bought them with some money my Grandad gave me before he passed away and that I'd been saving for something special. My Grandad was a smoker his whole life and while I know this is a terrible habit, it's something I'll always remember about him so I bought this Glomesh cigarette lighter as a little keepsake.
He used to play footy when he was younger so I bought a tiny football boot charm that I'm going to polish up and attach to my Mum's old charm bracelet that she gave to me. I think it will be nice to carry around something that reminds me of Grandad and I'm going to try and wear it more often. The last thing I bought was a pair of beautiful old marcasite and pearl clam shell earrings. I thought they looked like something that would have been around during Grandad's era and that they would just be something special to keep and remind me of him.
So that concludes my purchases at the vintage fair. I had so much fun rummaging around at all the stalls and couldn't think of a better place to spend my birthday money or to pick up a few special treasures.
Hope you all have a lovely week :) I'm going to spend a couple days relaxing since I submitted the literature review for my thesis on Monday and had a presentation today.
