BECAUSE I AM AWESOME, I today bought five postcards of the beautiful Gladys Cooper for £10. They're really stunning and I'm going to have to scan them and post on ladyaudley
And then, when I got back from Haworth, I bought a 1913 fashion magazine on Ebay because I'm sort of addicted at the moment, although I'm only going to buy things that are sort of investments.
There's a signed picture of Alice Faye in The Souk. It's worth a lot of money, but mostly for the frame which is solid silver so that's kind of depressing, I really want the picture but I'm not willing to pay £200 for a frame I don't even want. It's sort of ugly. But the picture is incredible. And signed!
There's a major lot that I'm bidding on and REALLY want to win because it's an absolute bargain that ends at about 4AM tomorrow morning. I might have to set an alarm or something. I know it sounds stupid, but I could make a lot of money out of this item and I'm really interested.
I'm putting my £100 towards all this good stuff, you know. It's the only way I can justify it.
I also discovered that The Souk has two Victorian fashion plates for sale and, folks, you have no idea how tempted I am. £10 each. 1843. My favourite era. Oh, it's tough being me.
