A few of my favourite charity shop finds
Here are a few of my all time favourites…
I have always longed to own a tapestry item. I remember owning an H&M handbag a few years ago. But to own something with a little vintage twist, well I was drawn to this purse immediately. I love the compactness and I love the print. It also reminds me of Anna Sui, the colour palette is so similar to that of the packaging of some of their cosmetics. And this was a snip at 99p.
Cameo Necklace and Brooch
I am always on the look out for Cameo’s. I love the theme; it makes me think of royalty and a classy woman who wears exquisite perfume. I got the brooch for 50p, I remember my mum spotting it amidst literal junk hunk up on a notice board. I love how it’s classic monochrome, it’s simple yet perfect the way it is.
The necklace is a lot more traditional and seriously how can a girl be denied pearls? I paid around £3 for this, which is not bad for an item I really do love owning.
Okay I admit to this day, I have never worn these. BUT I still feel the need to have them. I like how there not the classic red tartan, but still remain quirky. They also fit like a ‘glove’ too. I think I paid around £1.50.
This was a present from my Mum, but she got it from a Charity Shop :) It’s so me, and I love how natty it is. I am always terrified of damaging it, if you look really carefully the design is so elegantly made up of amazing embroidery.
The thing I love most about these items is that there not mass produced anymore, and they feel personal to me because I chose to bring them into my collection. I love collecting and scouring charity shops, purely because you never know what you may find x
