I really love a bargain so I'm not entirely sure why I didn't stop being a twit and start hunting around the charity shops before.. I mean, I buy second hand on Ebay so it's not much different is it! I might be biased but our one is definitely the best in the town (having gone in all the others with my lovely nan not so long ago!) so I only really buy from our one.. Plus we get 25% staff discount too! I can't believe some of the things people give away.. Brand new and/or branded items.. Good quality items! Our one always has really nice things from places like Top Shop, River Island, New Look, Marks and Spencer, Debenhams, Next, Dorothy Perkins.. etc.
Anyway, here's what I've come home with so far! All prices are before staff discount was applied.
(Please note: due to my naturally built in need to spend when I see things I like, this post will become a regular thing!)
|Yours Clothing top, £3.99.|
|George cardigan, £1.99.|
|Red Herring dress, £1.99.|
|New Look shopper bag, £2.99.|
|Marks and Spencer slouchy bag, £3.99 (new).|
|No tag so not sure where the scarf is from but it's soooo soft, £1.99.|
|Sainsburys vase set, £1.99.|
That's everything I've bought since I started in July.. I'm truly addicted now and always trying things on - especially Wednesday mornings, me and the lady I work with are in and out of the changing rooms when it's quiet! If I were a size 10/12, my wardrobe would probably have collapsed by now so I guess it should be thankful that I'm a chubster and it will take me longer to fill it!!! I bought a couple of bits today and will more than likely keep buying bits so there will be another post in the near future.
Have you bought any bargains lately? What are the charity shops like near you? xxx
