Over half term I did a spot of charity shopping, which is fast becoming one of my favorite things to do; ambling around somewhere quaint, chatting away to good company, helping worthy causes and then topping it all of with a tea stop- sound good to you?
I'll start with my two cheat items, not from a charity shop but two pretty not to share!
First up is this Paris poster, I was lured in by the vintage feel and goregous illustration. I'm sure you don't need to hear it again, but I am dying to visit Paris, everything about it just calls to me! This was only £3.75 from an amazing independent shop The Nest at No.9, I literally want everything in there. Keeping with the French theme for a second; I got an A in my last french speaking exam! I was totally shocked considering last time I did it I only achieved a C, so chuffed is not even the word!
The other item I picked up was this adorable tea light holder. I am partial to a candle or two, and this one was just to pretty to leave on the shelf. This was a snip at just £2.50 as well.
Next is something a bit weird top get excited about, put I finally bought a pin board! I have wanted one for my room for what seems like forever, and when I saw this for just £1 (yep £1) in a charity shop I knew I had to have it. I should have a post coming up all about how I plan to jazz it up, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Next up, a Ted Baker gift set. All the products where unopened and for only £3.50 I couldn't say no. This retails for £10, so it was a pretty good bargain! I adore the scent of Ted Baker products so I can see myself using these a whole lot.
Finally, a new jumper (which I have on right now FYI) This was from the men's section, but I was drawn to the colour and also the slouchy fit on me; in short- mega warm, and a snip at £5.
What do you think of what I found? Are you a fan of charity shopping?
