    The way it's been belting it down recently, I don't reckon anything I could afford will keep the rain out for longer than that :(

    just found these specks online about 5 years after seeing someone wearing a pair. I really want them but there's no way I can justify buying a new pair when my last pair are only a year old :(

    I want these Birkenstock Yara sandals (habana) but I can only find them for £98. I might break & buy them but would prefer to pay less but this colour seems rare.

    I'm a size 4-5 but seems getting a size 4 would be best.

    Ohhhhhh I really like that. Did you get one in the end Thimble Queen ? :)
     
  5. No. I went to see it in a shop and it was a bit flimsy and crap. Its not even waterproof - much needed over here. So I went to the haberdashery and bought some special strong thread and some good needles and fixed my existing backpack for a fiver instead. I'm happy with my fixed backpack :cool:

  7. Good, it's a bloody waste of money. That's most of a months food shop. I couldn't justify it even if it is beautiful :oops:

    It really is beautiful :mad:

    I've had my poncey square backpack for about 4years, regular use, no damage and no leaks.

    I do. One of those fjalkrakenshprecken wotsits. Used it at Uni, for travelling (fits in hand luggage cage easily), grocery shopping, work, general gadding about. It's black with red straps. Zip hasn't given me any trouble even though I do tend to cram it full of stuff.
    I like it.
    Definitely wasn't £75 though :eek:

    And Thimble Queen and Rutita1 : I just got one direct from China for £12 including postage :cool: It appears to be real (all the branded zips, all the proper tags, little leaflet inside etc). Have a look on eBay.

    Eta I do know what you mean by flimsy but I think it's just the (easily replaceable) straps. The bag itself seems robust enough. For me, anyway.

    Bargain, hand made and will last many, many years if looked after. You can (almost) never spend too much on shoes:D

    I want the M&S beauty advent calendar but it’s £35 plus you have to spend £35 to be able to buy it. Purchase can’t be food.

    I have bought one for a friends b’day tomorrow though buying Xmas gifts in order to do so. Now a friend told me she bought a M&S dress, bought the calander then returned the dress & they let her keep the calander.

    For some reason I've also got a hankering for a pair of these fell walking boots made by the last boot maker in Britain.

    Who makes these?

    There are quite a few boot makers left in Britain?

    Not mass production but hand made beauties.

    I might go and try it on anyway if there's any in stock. Maybe it will look awful on me. Can't hurt, right? :hmm::oops:

    Edit - actually it's not available in my size online and I'm not sure they'll have it in town so I'm probably safe.

    Apologies, I've got a lurking feeling this has been on the thread (or on urbs) before but I got strangely hypnotised by its charm. Not at that price tho:
