i haven’t done a charity shop finds post for a while, so i gathered my things on a sunny morning recently to take some photos. there’s a few things missing from this, either because they’re in the wash or because i just couldn’t find them when i was taking the photos, ha!
i’ve never been the kind of person that spends flippantly …i have a hard time making impulse purchases, so even though i still don’t buy that much, i do find myself buying less than i used to. is it an age thing? a being more aware of my surroundings and lifestyle thing? however i’ve always been rather picky, so i typically only buy things if i love them and/or i know they’ll be useful and therefore be worth spending on.
ever since i can remember i’ve loved brooches. i think started with my nan, as did my love of charity shops. lately though, i’ve been *really* into them and if one catches my eye and i can’t stop thinking about it, it’s hard to resist. basically a magpie.
by the way, the blouse at the top of this post was originally from laura ashley and it’s super pretty. looking for a cute pinafore dress to wear with it! any suggestions?
this trench coat and gold coloured pencil case/makeup bag came to the grand total of £1.20!! the charity shop they were from was shutting down (noooo) so they’d put everything on sale. it’s getting a bit chilly for the coat now, but come spring i’ll be wearing it lots!
i don’t know whether to use the pencil case as just that, or as a makeup bag for when i’m away. day to day i just pop my lipstick and bb cream in my purse, but when i’m away for a day or two i tend to bring a few lipsticks, eyeliner ..etc etc but never enough to warrant a huge bag. did i just convince myself there?
huge richard scarry fan and huge fan of shapes too, ha! and ladybird books ;)
for some reason i very rarely see richard scarry books around, so when i do i often end up buying them. partly nostalgia, mostly loving the illustrations.
i have no idea if the little man pin is from something? why is he holding some (what i assume is) ham? so many questions, but as i said above i’m having a ‘thing’ with brooches and pins lately and this little fella caught my eye.
and finally a sparkly top that was a bit of a whim purchase, but it was only 75p and i know it’ll get some use!
how about you, have you had any good charity shop finds lately? please share!
