We visited all of the above! Belly full of tea and a cupcake later we were on the train back to Walsall 8 hours later, dragging our masses of purchases behind us and just about able to stand up.
We crashed out with a chinese take-away, a few episodes of The Mighty Boosh and drank masses of tea & wine until we eventually passed out.
The following day we set out to Walsall to shop our socks off for the second day in a row.
We went to Emm Vintage and a couple of charity shops and bagged a few bargains.
Rather than trawling through the remaining vintage/charity shops we decided to have a slight spur of the moment tattoo which resulted in the following images.
The long day at Walsall was followed by wine and pizza which was quickly demolished before running to catch the train which we missed, and narrowly missed getting abducted by a drunken man. nice.
The Trip was succesful! I finished the 2 day shopping haul with 2 dresses, 1 jacket, 2 skirts, 5 tops, 2 scarfs, a tattoo and a frigging lethal shopping buddy!
I'm sure you will be seeing photos of my new purchases very soon.
