Charity shop haul

charity shop haul
I haven’t helped out in the charity shop for a couple of weeks, so while I was there yesterday I had a bit of a shopping spree…
These books jumped out at me. I had a hard time only taking these books home, as i decided yesterday the whole entire book room needed an overhaul as we had boxes and boxes of lovely new books donated I spent a few hours taking all the old ones off the shelves and replacing them. Which meant I came across many many books I ‘needed’. I thought I was very good only buying these.. the books are sold for 1.00 each.
drink stirrers
I was chuffed to bits when I found these drink stirrers, they cost 2.00 for the 4 and are glass. There’s a dolphin, a fishy, sea horse and an apple. I can’t wait for the summer Pimms drinking days to get here to use them. (it’s persisting down at the moment)
vintage gloves
I love these gloves. I bought two pairs, these white ones and some shorter brown ones. They have never been worn and feel lovely. The long ones were 2.00 and the short ones 1.50.  A great price for a bit of elegance huh?!
The white skirt didn't come out very well on the photo, but it’s a lovely summer skirt with some white embroidery on one side, it’s by Animal and cost 4.95.  Although I get a 20% discount for volunteering so that makes it all even more of a bargain!!


  1. I would be terrible if I helped out in a op shop, I would be buying everything.

  2. Love, love, love those gloves! I have alway wanted a pair but never found any in our local op shops.
