    Last weekend took DD back to Uni in bath and got a Mulberry Jacket for £5 and two pairs of white company Linen Trs never worn for £2 per pair.

    Going to Thame in Oxford on Wed as husband working there. Can anyone suggest any good charity shops / areas for Charity shops near there?

    Thanks

    If you google 'find a charity shop' it takes you to a page where you can enter any location in the UK and it will tell you all the local charity shops. Useful for day trips to unfamiliar areas.
  • Popped into my local Debra charity shop and got a brand new with £40 tag still attached Next dress for £6 and looks new black top for £2.50. Both will be fab for work. Need to stop buying and going to car boots!
    I have every possession I want. I have a lot of friends who have a lot more possessions. But in some cases I feel the possessions possess them, rather than the other way round

    Vintage Paddington Bear £5.00

    I really wanted one of these when I was younger, with the proper tiny wellies. A girl in my class (spoilt show-off type) at infant school brought hers to school and I hankered after one for years afterwards!

    There was one recently for sale for £10.00 in the local charity shop. You don't see them often, I resisted! I had moved on from that yearning!

    He had yellow boots, brown hat and blue duffle coat with label attached.
    A minute at the till, a lifetime on the bill.

    Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels.

    one life, live it!

    I bought a fab m&s dress in kemp hospice shop and wore to wedding on weekend and very tempted to pop it back to the chairty shop so they can sell on and someone else gets the use too or it will sit in my wardrobe forever!

    I have bear envy :D

    What a bargain. I found a small one made in the 90's and had red wellies .... my mam loves bears so she is now the proud owner.

    Today I was able to pick up some lovely 1950's cushion covers. So pretty will look well on 2 old chairs that I have.

    I am having serious charity shop withdrawal since I have been back at work! Hoping to sneak in some tomorrow though. Wore my gorgeous, bargainous Fenn Wright Manson wool dress today- picked it up in a Cancer Research shop in the summer and got three compliments on it today. Absolutely love it, and it cost about £4!
