I hope you are all well, I am having a pretty chilled Sunday today but feeling super happy about the week I have just had. My competition on my Instagram did really well, I got a million jobs done a work and was super productive. So woohoo for me I guess. I have also got super organised with my blog and have all my posts planned out up to the end of February which is not like me at all!
The other week I found this gorgeous silk shirt in a charity shop for just £2.50 and instantly knew I had to buy it. I have been finding some real gems in the charity shops at the minute so I thought I would share some more of my top tips for shopping second hand.
You can see my original post here!
I love finding pieces for my house in charity shops, vases and trinket trays are always easy finds and can really dress up any space in your house. I am a big lover of wicker baskets also (particularly for my classroom) and charity shops have them far cheaper than any home store.
SAME SHOP TWICE
I seem to have my go to charity shops which I usually know I will find something good in. Unfortunately for me they are spread out so I usually only visit one at a time. Charity shops are constantly getting new donations so it is always worth popping back regularly.
DON’T FORGET TO CHECK THE SHOES
You can really find some amazing bargains in the shoe section, I recently went into one charity shop and there were vans, converse and some barely worn new look boots; none of which were over £5.00. Unfortunately none of which were in my size.
