Summer Fete Haul

I am very fond of a good church fete as I love the cakes, the vintage treasures and, most of all, box after box of cheap books. I want to share with you today the things I found at the fete the other day and I wish I had bought more books as they were 20p for paperbacks and 50p for hardbacks - at that price how can you lose?! There were some gorgeous old Penguin Classics which I wish I had picked up now.
Anyway, on with the haul!

My Dad got me this old book from Princess Elizabeth which was a gift to a children's hospital. It was probably 50p as it is hardback. It has little stories and poems in it and beautiful illustrations.  

I got this for 20p as I am half way through my library copy but have really enjoyed it so far so decided to get a copy of my own. However I really dislike the cover art because it looks so ugly.

I am big Bronte fan so decided to give this a whirl for 20p

I watched the film of this and loved it so I am excited to read the book and at 20p yet again how can I go wrong.

I got this cute watch for £1 but I am not sure if I will be able to make it work

My Dad got me this for 20p as I asked him to get me more books from the fete when he went round and he bought me this - it looks promising and I love the cover.

I have never read this before but everyone recommends it so for 20p I decided to give it a go.

I got this cute kimono style jacket for £1 and I loved the oriental vintage style of it

I would love to hear if you could recommend any good places to find vintage bargains in the UK as I am always up for a trip to look around cute vintage shops or fairs. I would also love to hear if you have read any of the books and what you think of them.
