Charity Shop Bargains

We all love a bit of a bargain, whether it’s getting something in the sale or finding a little second hand gem on the high street (or online thanks to the likes of Gumtree). I have always loved grabbing a baggy shirt from the local secondhand/vintage shop but it’s only now that I have truly caught the second hand bug after finding a Zara shirt for a steal at four pounds(!) while my friend was donating some clothes to a local charity shop. Not only was my shirt a bloomin’ bargain, it fits me like a glove all in perfect time for Autumn weather.

So when it came to Tom visiting, a fellow lover of checkered shirts (bargain or not), I suggested we go charity shopping around Southampton. Although Tom didn’t find anything himself he did point out a pretty little bag, bringing out his inner fashionista by suggesting I buy it so I have a brown bag as an alternative to my little black one.  At first I wasn’t sure, after all, as a student at the end of Summer, in the pre loan period, I’m really scraping for cash. But who could resist a cute little bag at the giveaway price of £3.45? I’m so easily persuaded it’s horrifying. 

With pay day coming up I’ll be back out in the charity/second hand shops hopefully to find a record player and kick start my collection of vinyls. Until then though I think it’s a good idea I stay clear away from any shops, sliced prices or not.
