In which I hit the charity shops

In my local area there are what seems like hundreds of Charity shops.Well not hundreds. 6 if I've counted correctly. Today I decided I would go down and have a look because you can sometimes get some really lovely stuff. Sometimes there's loads sometimes there's nothing; it's kind of hit and miss really isn't it? There wasn't very much but I got a couple of things:
I bought a dress and a bracelet. The dress is from Cancer Research for £7 and the bracelet is from Capability Scotland for £1. I think I might take the bracelet apart and put one of the dice on my charm bracelet and I might make a necklace from one of the other dice. I'm not sure yet. Anyway, though, I really like the dress, especially since it was such a bargain.

What do you think? Do you ever shop in charity shops?



  1. I love buying in charity shops, you can always get things a little different.. I love the dress! Great post x

  2. Hi Amy!

    No Charity shops near us, but we often go to the Salvation Army,Goodwill Stores,DAV thrift stores and other thrift stores and shops. It is so
    exciting when you find something you love and at the right price. To us
    our excitement is almost like our childhood Easter egg!
    Nice dress. Great post as always!!!
    Love, Joan and Joann
