Charity shop discussion!

Hey everyone,
So I've been on blogger for about a week now, as I haven't been feeling too  great lately and going back to school after a break always gets me down!

I wanted to talk on the subject of charity shops, to see what you guys think!

I recently went into a charity shop after hearing so many bloggers and YouTubers show amazing thrifty finds, especially one of my friends who bought a vintage chest of drawers for £15. I was quite surprised to find loads of clothes, jewellery, home stuff and books, all for really cheap, and being the bargain hunter I am I loved it!

 I didn't buy any clothes for two reasons: 1. I am very tall but slim and most of the clothes were too big 2. I felt a little awkward buying second hand clothing. Don't get me wrong, I think it is a great idea to have clothes donations  but something in me felt slightly weird at buying clothes someone else didn't want. I'm not saying they aren't good enough, or anything like that but it did made me feel a bit funny and I'm not really sure why. In a weird way I would rather donate money than buy the things. Does anyone else get this?

I could definitely see myself going again as I am a big bargain hunter and I love the idea of looking through the shop finding cool, antique and unique items! One man's rubbish is another's treasure (or something like that:P).
However, I picked up two bracelets which are so pretty and were so cheap! When I saw the little bucket of jewellery I rushed over very quickly and immediately saw these two. I love the fact that buying things from the shop was helping others out and not just going to some multi million pound business who just use the money to make more clothes.
I was just interested to know whether any of you have bought any amazing thrifty finds from a charity shop, and what your views are! :D

Hope you are all ok,

lots of love,


  1. I love going to antique fayres and having a good old rummage, but I feel the same about second hand clothes xx


    1. same, there's something fun about looking for cute stuff in a jumble sale! I'm glad someone agrees with me :) xxx

  2. Ooooh, I LOVE a bit of charity shop shopping! As well as eBay, I just love bargain shopping, hahaha! It did take me a while to get used to/over the fact I'm wearing someone's old clothes. But to be honest after a couple of washes I completely forget about it. I've got some great buys, most of my blog is about bargain buys haha!

    Anyway, aside from my rambling, I think you should definitely get into charity shop shopping, I'm sure you'll love it!


    1. I love bargain shopping too, I really want to get into charity shops! thanks for the advice :) xxx
