charity shop finds!

it’s been a while. not intentionally, but i got overwhelmed by the thought of taking photos. not sure why. so, i’ve decided to just take a couple photos of some more recent finds, and start again from here.

i do share my charity shop finds on instagram stories from time to time, but for those who don’t see them, what better reason to start doing these posts again? i seem to get a fair bit of traffic from people searching for these kinds of posts too.

so, without further ado, a little bit of info about each thing…

straw weaved handbag

the first thing is this ceramic candle holder which i thought would be perfect for my string of hearts plant. for 20p it was an excellent find in my opinion.

i have a few straw bags, and this is probably the biggest. about the size of an average ‘big’ handbag. just liked that it has extra room and longer rope like handles. other than a small round cross body bag, my others are the kind you can only carry by hand, which isn’t ideal when you have more things inside.

midi length denim dress

small basket bag

campbells soup flask

i’ve been looking…

for a midi length denim dress for literal years. despite trying many on (new too, not just in charity shops) i could just never find one i liked enough, that felt right. though i typically prefer darker denim, this one called to me despite being hidden behind another dress. looking forward to wearing it in the summer, but it was great in the winter with a roll-neck underneath or jumper on top. love a versatile dress!

i have wanted a proper little basket bag for a while and this one is just lovely, right? got so many comments on it when i shared on my instagram.

and the campbells soup flask! typically not an impulse buyer but sometimes you just gotta. i mean, it’s so cool right? and actually an item i can use too.

small hornsea vase

floral trinket box

and finally this tiny hornsea vase and a paper mache trinket box. always enjoy a bit of hornsea but hardly ever find any in charity shops around cardiff. thought this would look super cute with a single flower in it. in the box is loose buttons and things like old bracelet charms.

do you like these charity shop finds posts? is there anything else along these lines you’d like to see, like perhaps my favourite charity shops in cardiff?

    Gorgeous selection of finds! That big straw bag looks like a dream – I love this style too but also don’t always find it convenient!
