Last month you might remember I posted about the bargains I had found whilst digging around the charity shops. I thought it was time that I shared with you what I have found so far this month – maybe this will encourage you to pop in to your local charity shop next time you are passing by. I just love charity shops… all the joy of buying things but with very little of the guilt!
I will start off with my two favourite buys as seen in the image above: how cute is the dress on the left (£1.99)? I’m thinking it will look lovely with black tights and boots over the Autumn, then with bare legs when Spring comes around (note to self: get in the gym). I love a colourful print – it is so ‘me’. The dress on the right is a Boden dress which looks like it retailed at £70. The label on it said £9.99 but when I took it to the till, it was only £4.99. Perfect for a Summer wedding, or maybe I’ll wear it when I eventually get round to having my son baptised (at this rate, he’ll be two… better get on it!).
Once again, I took advantage of Barnardos’ 4 kids items for £1.99 offer and picked up some stuff for our holiday at the end of the month. I particularly love the John Lewis sunsafe swimming top and matching hat.
Finally, I bought my daughter a couple of boxes of jigsaw puzzles (99p each). I am particularly chuffed with the Gruffalo one – I have written before about how my kids are huge fans.
I would love to hear if this post has inspired you to give charity shop shopping a go!
