Locked out!

It is now my third day in my new apartment and guess what I did today. Locked myself out, on my third day! I went to hang out some newly found vintage finds on the clothes line when I realised I had no key to get back in. I did a little frustration dance, then walked up to the little old ladies apartment, hands full of clothes, knocked on the door and explained what happened. She replied with " Oh you skinny knob" ...probably the sweetest old lady I know, she offered me a seat on her 1950's orange printed chair and a biscuit. She was watching a black and white film, couldn't quite catch what exactly it was, and then continued to tell me a story about, well I don't know. I tuned out and kindly nodded. The locksmith man finally turned up and I was let back in, Ah what a relief! Don't worry all my vintage finds were safe and sound! 

I then finished off a bag of m&m's, whilst sitting down enjoying the beautiful sun and afternoon breeze. 

OH and we now have a fridge for our apartment, no more smelly lettuce or bad milk. I will be posting the new collection hopefully by the end of next week, so keep an eye out. This collection is very colourful with lots of cool retro prints!

About Me

Here's a little about Spearmint Vintage ... One raining day trying to sleep I got thinking about my dream to own my own vintage store, then I thought why not start now! So I began configuring ideas of how to put my love for vintage fashion to use. Then it sprung...ebay, pretty simple. And in case you are wondering the name Spearmint came about through my earliest memory of my dad taking me down to the milk bar ordering his favourite ... a Spearmint milkshake. And well there it was, I fell in love with that word, Spearmint. Basically I go around to op shops and markets and hand pick out items that immediately scream out to me, whether it's the colour, print or style. I'll know when it's a little gem in hiding ...
