No more spending sprees to confess here, there are travel plans to save for, but I have been buying the odd thing if the price was right. The most expensive purchase was the brooch below, £8 (far beyond my usual £2 cap on brooches!) but it is such an unusual design and I just had to have it.
I spotted this vintage bag among crates of rubbish at a house clearance warehouse - it needed a hoover, but it's now looking pristine and is ready for the summer. I haggled it for £4.
It seems bags are like buses. In a charity shop I spotted this super soft leather clutch from St Michael, £4, and the little mid-century gold bag for £1. The brooch was £2, and had a stone missing, but I have already glued a new one in.
The same shop also had these like-new black leather t-bars, for £5. I hardly ever find charity shop shoes in my size, and they also fit really well, so they had to come home with me!
The local community recycling center has old films on DVD quite regularly. This time, I picked up a multi-disc of a few Bulldog Drummond films, £1. I hadn't heard of these before, but my Mum said she's read the books. I've watched the first one and it was a lot more slapstick than I imagined! Entertaining stuff for a rainy afternoon.
And finally, a really super hardback book on Humphrey Bogart, with lots of wonderful photographs. Just £1.
I think that's a lovely selection for a total of £26. It's a cheaper hobby than going to the pub, that's for sure!
Have you had any good charity shop finds recently?
