ooooh, i miss htown! born & bred, but i'm currently in london for university.
thought i would share some of my favorite thrift haunts:
for those of you on the northside, there is a NAAM & Salvation Army on W FM1960 (Spring side) that we used to go to all the time. And for crafters, NAAM usually had sewing notions, yarn and materials. And their prices were pretty decent. SA prices are typically though the roof, but they have a good selection of books and homewares. On the East side of FM1960 (Humble side) there is a Goodwill Superstore off the 59 feeder just south of 1960...it's kind of hit & miss. There is also a HAAM off of Old 1960/First Street in Old Humble.
If you travel down 59 S a bit, there is a fantastic Family Thrift Center off of Little York a block or so from the feeder (past the flea market). And there is a Value Village down Tidwell which is also great for clothes.

I miss Houston thrifting! The charity shops here aren't even half as good. It's so funny, because  at some of the big vintage clothing shops in London you will find items that still have their Value Village tags on them, alot of them from Houston area stores! So that's where all the good stuff goes. Wink

thanks jjgirl! yeah, i wasn't too sure about the colours at first...originally i wanted the ribbons to be orange like the lining, but i had that pink ribbon sitting around and i just went for it! i really like the way it turned out. Smiley

Made with 100% Cotton Yarn. Lined with orange silk and a Laura Ashley fruit print cotton. Pink ribbon is not as shiny in real life. Wink
There are still some ends needing to be woven in. I was just too excited to wait. Smiley

Made from Jennye's excellent pattern and inspired by an Anthropologie purse.

Well, almost done. As you can see, there are still come ends to be woven in. But I was just so excited I had to post it.
I'm not particularly happy with how my lining came out, but oh well. It's lined with orange silk and a Laura Ashley fruit print cotton. I also added an interior pocket and cell phone pocket. The ribbons are pink and are not as shiny in real life as they appear in the photo! The yarn is Wendy 100% cotton.

The pattern was easy to follow and no mistakes that I found!

Jennye, do you mind if I post it in the completed projects board? Or should I wait until you've made the pattern public? Thanks again for such a great pattern!! Smiley

i'm a pattern tester Smiley

it's going really well!! it hooks up really quickly, especially since i've been parked in front of the tv all day. i'm about half way finished and it's looking good. it's bigger than i expected, but i'm really excited about the fact that i'll be able to use it as a summer tote. i'm dreading the lining a bit, but i'll just have to bite the bullet.

the pattern has been very easy to follow and no mistakes that i've found! i'll definitely post pics when i finish Smiley

oh man, coming from the states where thrift stores are like little pieces of heaven, London is lacking in good CHEAP vintage clothes.
but I agree, Beyond Retro is probably your best bet. I've found some great bargains there and their selection of fifties dresses (though pricey) is to die for. and Portobello (Ladbroke Grove side) is a good place to dig.
good luck!
