Something a bit different from beauty today.I hope you don’t mind.
It’s still beautiful in its own way because it’s charitable and all!
Thrift shopping or ‘mooching around the charity shops’ if you don’t want to Americanise another term. Is something I do on the days that I’m broke after my direct debits come out. And need a shopping fix.
Today was one of those days.
If you are familiar with charity shops you will know that there is always a little tiny home ware section usually pushed towards the back of the shop.
At first glance it looks like it houses all of your grandparents’ old junk. But look closer. And if you can be bothered to pick through the Barry Manilow memorabilia and hideous china dolls, you can usually pick up some really cool/unique things to decorate your house.
|Tea light holder- 50p. Not the best example of a unique find as I just spotted an Ikea sticker underneath it, ha!-Currently burning Yankee Midsummers night.|
|Blue glass jug £1- I have no plans for this as yet. It’ll probably end up housing a fake flower of some sort.|
|Glass tray 50p- Evidently, I am the blogger equivalent of the girl who keeps the stickers on underneath her shoes!|
|The same glass tray- I haven’t decided whether to keep Jewellery in it. Or soap type products…|
|Books- I bought these from a charity shop a while ago, They were either £1 or £2 each. I tend to use nice books as decor, either on my dressing table or TV stand so I do judge them by their covers. Naughty I know!|
I’m pretty pleased with my little haul I spent £4.50 (not including the books.) And still got the shopping buzz minus the buyer’s remorse!
Do you spend much time in charity shops?
