Why charity shops are awesome








People often sneer at charity shops, saying their for grannies or what not. Well actually, they're immense. All of these photos above are of things I've purchased from charity shops, and each item is usually about £3! Not to mention it's all for a good cause. So I don't really see any faults with them.


In fact, the boater hat in the first picture caused me to get featured HERE.


Other than that I've basically been having a lazy day today. It's raining like mad, I only left the house to get a wrap and some crisps from Tesco, so now I'm sporting pyjamas and a wooly cardigan....

thanks for my comment - feather extensions are big in america, i saw them on someone's blog and on youtube and was like WOW I WANT THEM! i think the hairdresser puts them in for you and they last a month-6 weeks! you can get all sorts of pretty colours, but i don't know anywhere where they would do them :(
and thanks!

I am now very, very, jealous.

I WISH there are charity shops in Singapore/China. Those clothes are gorgeous! And so are you.
