It was when I went to college I discovered the ‘flea market’. It was a complete scrapheap of junk week after week; I would go every Wednesday mostly on my own and bring back a whole host of goodies. The 20p boxes always enticed me.
Well its years since I’ve been to that market and a good 12months since I’ve been to them charity shops. So this was much overdue...
Adorable kitsch tin from the flea market for £1, I love the cute little illustrations and couldn’t resist it.
I found this bangle in a recently re-opened charity shop for 50p; it’s typically what I go for, vintage florals.
Now I swear I’m turning into some mad old bag and book lady, but my Mum bought me this wonderful bag from Primark. It was reduced to £2 and even though I have a (fair) few bags, I don’t have a bag this size/shape etc...
And as for books. Well I keep telling myself once our bookshelf is full it’s full. NO more. But I couldn’t resist these…
This children’s book from 1967. So terribly cute and cost 25p from one of the smaller charity shops. It includes 8 stories, complete with illustrations. My favourite has to be Cinderella of course!
I also stumbled across this, a book my friend has recommended for many years, I was simply browsing and suddenly recognized the title. This was 99p, I seriously recommend charity shops for books, they cost next to nothing.
I do hope I enjoy it as much as she did♥
I also got some Toy Story goodies. I know, I know how bad am I? These have been given away free all week with the Daily Mirror newspaper and my Auntie has been collecting them for me, I do love the film as you all know and I can’t resist a bit of a freebie.
