oh this is my perfect type of thrifting haul. things to wear and items for the house :)

i don't know what the charity shops are like where you live but the ones here in edinburgh are very savvy now. they know their stuff and it's usually reflected in the price, but not all the time. after all, one person's trash is another person's treasure, and that is why i will always adore a good ole hunt in a charity shop. you never know what you're going to find...


i love everything about these plates, the pattern, the colour and the fact they were only £2 each (and i got four :)


i'm a bit jar crazy at the moment, and loved these two beauties. hmmmm now what to do with them...


the beading on this top is beautiful and very great gatsby. now all i need is my leo ;)


i love it when you go to a charity shop and literally walk away with a full outfit for less than a tenner. this is a great (slighty grannytastic) midi dress. i will look forward to donning this number when the weather gets a bit colder, which in scotland could be like tomorrow.

  1. Fab finds. Most of our charity shops are savvy these days too.

    I am loving the 'grannytastic' phrase btw

  2. I often feel clothes are expensive in these shops now, charity shops are not the cheap bargain hunt they use to be.

    1. totally agree with you, elaine. they're mostly filled with primark clothes with the same price tag as the shop itself! that always makes me laugh.
      still treasures to be found though, that beaded top was only £4. happy days :)
      thanks for stopping by!
