Charity Shop Delights

Charity shops. Where to begin….

When I was younger, I used to hate it when my dad made me go into them. It was so embarrassing, and I always used to do a mad search in the crowds to make sure no one I knew was about.
If there was, I would hang about outside the shop, say my hellos and moan about my dad being in there.
Oh how things have changed!
I love a rummage in a charity shop. First place to hit – the books, to see if I can find a fantastic new cookery book to add to the collection.

The Little Lady came along with me last week for a cheeky little look and she loved it!
All I heard was “Ooo mummy, I’ll have this” “mummy, mummy, can I have this?” And bless her wee socks “mummy Michael would like this, lets get it”
Lolly’s purchases were all books – Pocahontas and Beauty and the Beast. She picked Jack and the Beanstalk for Michael. We got these at 29p per book. Bargain!

When I go into the charity shops I go straight for the cookery books, a girl can never have too many you know.
My bargains included Antonio Carluccio and a baking book, both for £3.75.
One happy me.

So what are you waiting for??
Head on over to your local charity shop and help them out and grab some bargains for yourself.

What’s been your best bargain?
Be sure to let me know



  1. My best bargain had to be at the beginning of this year in my local Fara. They usually sell clothes really cheap at £1 each, however they had an offer of any 3 pairs of trousers for £1. I picked up Oasis jeans, Next, Whistles, gap and Per Una trousers and jeans for 33p each! Needless to say I had a field day:) My girls love charity shopping too and I don’t mind indulging them when I am spending next to nothing on books and clothing.
