back with some more charity shop finds!
money has been tighter than ever, so, though I’ve never been over the top with spending, I have definitely been even more considered with my purchases in the past few months. I very, very rarely buy on impulse anyway, and always try to consider whether what I buy will be useful (therefore, something I will actually use), needed, or something I’ve been looking for for a while. sometimes I will be searching for years – not continuously, mind you – for certain items of clothing or objects.
there is the occasional thing that might be slightly more impulse based though, like the little disco ball above. I saw on the Betty magazine Instagram that Charlotte had bought one, and when I saw one in a charity shop a few days later I knew it was basically meant to be. love when it catches the light, and safe to say Ava is a fan too.
the pastel striped blouse was basically a must have. I adore the pocket and sleeve detail, so unusual and not something you’d see on clothes nowadays! perfect for summer and warmer spring days. I love small framed images, and especially floral based ones, so at 20p, how could I possibly resist?
when one of my favourite Cardiff charity shops was having a book sale I found a vintage book with lots of cake and dessert recipes – it had some fantastic photos in that were primo collage material! also, I found the below book with loads of sweet, colourful floral plates at the end. definitely want to scan a few to print and hang!
you may know I have a small stamp collection so these vintage united nations stamps were most definitely calling out to me. love that graphic imagery! the plant mister was a bit of an excited find, I’ve wanted one for ages but can’t really afford to pay £12 or so for something like that. a bargain at £1 and certainly prettier than my plastic spray bottle! and finally, this cute little pin, which, if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll find I didn’t realise was a girl guide pin til I got it home! I just liked it because I thought would look cute on my favourite yellow coat (which, yes, was from a charity shop).
have you found anything good in charity shops lately? any charity shops you’d like to recommend?
