We spent the whole Monday mooching around literally, Caernarfon and Bangor came up trumps Charity Shop-wise. I think we must have visited a good fifteen in total. And YES I say ‘we’ normally taking the Mr Charity shopping is a complete no go. But on this occasion it just had to be done.
I found the most amazing pair of boots, but they were only a size 4 and I desperately needed that size 5. I was merely devastated for a good hour or so.
However I did find these pure gems. You know my constant love affair with children’s books; I love sourcing out old books, and cannot keep away from the children’s section in charity shops.
Well my perseverance paid off in Wales, as in the YMCA I found these two French children’s books from 1972.
I knew they were old instantly as I spied down the worn down spines, as soon as I reached them off the shelf I was in complete and utter awe.
The illustrations are so unusual and I must admit I have a bit of a soft spot for the French language; I did study it at after all.
And they were priced at 19p each.
I couldn’t express my delight in finding such a lovely and exciting find. I’m looking to have these on display, I just can’t keep my eyes off them at the moment, I simply could not adore them more if I tried♥
