Do You Support Your Local Charity Shops.....

Recently I have become a charity shop lover!! After reading blogs on how to save money I needed to get myself into these shops, I would read that others had found the most amazing things at the most amazing prices and I wanted in!!

I will admit I never used to go into charity shops and my imagination had built this picture in my head of them being filled with junk, well how wrong I was!

My local Cancer ResearchUK is fantastic, I have picked up some amazing tops and jumpers and they are always around the £3-£5 mark (I also picked up a huuge casserole dish for £2.50 - boring but i was chuffed to bits lol) but today I am going to show you this little beauty....

This gorgeous glass bowl cost me £1.50, now why does this tie into beauty I hear you ask?????

Well as my current makeup brush holder (which was made by the lovely Karen *waves at Karen*) is getting full I needed another one so this is it.....

What do you think? Cute right?

Do you shop in your local charity shops? Have you ever found a complete bargain as I would love to know about it!!




  1. I love charity shop shopping, it excites me cause I never know what I'll come out with,

    This bowl is a bargain and is perfect for storing your brushes,

    Fab find!

  2. Can't say I have ever found anything in ours of any use although I don't very often go in or have time to look properly. Great dish though.

  3. This is super cute!

    I don't really have any charity shops locally but I did pick up my favourite handbag of all time in one, a brand new Chloe Paddington complete with dust bag for just £20 - bargain of the century and for such a good cause. x

  4. I really need to go into charity shops a bit more x

  5. It's nice to see more and more bloggers shopping in charity shops!

    I've picked up many bargains in my local charity shops but I think the best one I've picked up is a unused, unopened NARS Orgasm Illuminator for about £2 :) xo

  6. Lovely! I'll be taking a trip to mine asap. I pick up tea cup and saucers to make teacup candles from in charity shops. Cost next to nothing and look really effective! x

    1. What a fantastic idea! I will be on the hunt for teacups now hehe!!
