It’s difficult to get 5 pairs of tacky Primark pants for £12 these days…
so you’ll understand my obsession with finding quality clothing in charity shops, for extraordinary prices.
Picture a rainy Saturday afternoon (not hard to imagine if you live in the UK). After instigating a shopping trip and having little success at a vintage warehouse, I decide it was time to drag my boyfriend around the charity shops and to my delight, I found three fantastic items.
After hunting for the perfect pair of fluffy earmuffs for the wintery weather for a long time, you can understand my delight when stumbling upon a pair of Ness tartan earmuffs with a fluffy faux lining, retailing at £12.99, yet purchased from a charity shop in Poole for just £3.99 on this occasion.
My ears are feeling the benefits already…
We’re all aware that Reiss garments can often cost an arm and a leg, with the knitwear range alone costing anywhere from £100 upwards, when sales aren’t in place. For this reason, I grabbed this deep green jumper from the shelf and immediately bought it for a mere £4.50 – and it was a small, so the perfect fit. Result!
3. River Island Floaty Floral Long Shirt
Perfect for daytime work-wear, perfect for nighttime casual – this top set me back just £4. With a bright colour palette to stand out from a mile away and a really crisp ‘new look and feel’, this size 6 top was a must-have from the moment I spotted it.
All in all, this was a great charity haul but obviously not every charity shopping trip ends with so many quality items.
