Charity Shop Shopping.....


I have got the bug. The charity shop shopping bug. Ever since I found my little makeup brush holder (which I posted about here) I love having a browse through my local charity shops and yesterday I picked up some little bits and pieces, although they aren't beauty related I thought I would share with you what I found.....


Dorothy Koomson - The Cupid Effect 99p.
A original sketch of my much loved city Chester framed £3.00.
Padded heart decoration 75p.
Heart decoration made from recycled paper £2.00.

My boyfriend thinks I am bonkers but I am really pleased with my little buys, the heart decoration made from recycled paper is gorgeous and they also had a vase made in the same way which I want but that was a lot more expensive at £20, I may go back for it :)


I don't know what it is about this picture I just love it, I love my 'hometown' well Chester is a little city and I adore it so I want to collect pictures, hopefully original drawings to create a 'Chester wall' in my dressing room.....


What do you think?

Have you found any charity shop bargains recently?

  3. The heart is adorable! I love browsing charity shops. Most of the stuff there has hardly ever been used and still in perfect condition; I don't know why more people don't go there! They're missing out.

    My partner and I regularly look around charity shops for little tidbits. He called me mean when I bought a little brown teddy from a charity shop last year for my Halloween costume last year. I took a pair of scissors to it and replaced his eyes with buttons (my Halloween costume was meant to be a creepy doll) but the way I look at it my money went to a good cause!

    (Haha I've written too much, sorry!)

  6. You should check out your local carboot sales in the spring. They are great for kiting your place out cheaply.My mum buys pictures just for the cheap frames. Just always check dvds and cds before paying. I always stock up my book shelves. You cant beat a book for 20 or 50p.
