One person’s rubbish is another person’s treasure!

The perfect Saturday….
Nice long lie in followed by a big breakfast to set you up for a day of charity shopping! As I’ve said before for me there is nothing better than spending a day in and out of charity shops, junk shops and flea markets and I know most of my friends would agree!
However things are changing and the profile of charity shops has been raised in recent years especially with people like Mary Queen of shops and her mission to bring them kicking and screaming into the 21st century! You can defiantly see that they are moving with the times, reinventing themselves as sharp, modern establishments.
There used to be a stigma attached to charity shops but people’s attitude towards them have changed meaning they have entered the mainstream shopping sector. I personally find this quite sad, for me the beauty of Charity Shopping is that sense of discovery and the excitement of finding something special amongst all the tat, and the fact that they didn’t just blend into being “another high street shop”
It doesn’t stop me however having a good nose! And below are my latest finds.
And my perfect Saturday ends with a nice glass of red wine in the pub!
