So Pippa and I have a bit of love for charity shops and we are always trying to find a bargain in them so I thought I’d show some of the things that we have picked up in charity shops recently. I’m sure there will be more along soon…
Red wool jumper:
I picked this up from a charity shop in Portswood, I actually really like the colour of it, it brightens up an outfit.
The boots were also from charity only £10, I absolutely love them I’ve worn them so much recently.
White wool Jumper (Totnes):
This jumper I actually found in a charity shop in totnes, it feels soooo comfortable, although I’m not too keen on the white colour, I find it doesn’t actually go with many of my other clothes, so I might dye it if I get round to dyeing some other items.
Picnic Hamper (new forest)
We absolutely love wicker basket and picnic baskets so we have been keeping an eye out for one for a while. We came across this basket in a charity shop in the new forest (it was empty when we got it for £10) but we have tried to get some crockery etc to fill it, although it isn’t finished yet.
But then we came across this one in another charity shop in portswood, so we decided to get it as well… I sense lots of picnics coming up. Also this goes really well with a blanket I had picked up previously (with a picnic basket in mind)
Dressform from totnes
My new addition to my sewing room! =) A new adjustable dress form. This will be so much more useful than my old one. Now hopefully I will have enough time to use it. I have a few projects lined up which this will be extremely useful for! In fact you will be seeing it in a project very soon!
