Found this yesterday. The shop has no fitting room or mirrors confused and the dress has no labels so I had to just hope it fitted me when I got it home. It cost £5.99.

It did grin.

Has anyone else had a good find recently?

Gorgeous!! What a fab find. I'm jealous. I look like a granny in all charity shop finds grin

Well done. You look great!

Donge13 Sun 31-Jan-16 15:28:57

Stunning! I'm very jealous envy

Fab find!
I got a Petit bateau snowsuit for £2.50 looks new or hardly worn. Weathers not that cold so might not get much use, but at that price who cares

Oh that is beautiful! I love a good chazza find. Last week I found this Pure Collection wool/cashmere ankle length coat, still with its tags on, for £2.99. A little Googling revealed it was originally £249! There's one currently on eBay for £100. It may be the nicest coat I've ever had! I also found an oak Mulberry East West Bayswater for £10 a while back - had it checked and it's genuine <smug emoticon> grin

That is beautiful! I need to start going to charity shops more often.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 31-Jan-16 17:20:34

Oooh nice find OP!

There's nothing better than finding a charity shop gem!

I bought some cool pink shoes from my local RSPCA CS a few months back. I'll see if I can find a pic.

DavetheCat2001 Sun 31-Jan-16 17:36:16

Here we go..I paid £4 for these grin

Wow is the only word that comes to mind.

We should keep this thread going, I love seeing other folks' bargains.

WileHallion Sun 31-Jan-16 18:15:26

Thanks all ignores the cunty posters smile.

Loving the coat and those shoes too. I have way too many pairs of brightly coloured t-bars myself!

HeyYouGetOffMyCloud Sun 31-Jan-16 18:17:49

You look amazing in that OP. Amazing dress but you carry it so well.

I love a great Charity shop find. Last week I went in and the shop assistant pointed me at a long almost unworn Hugo Boss cardi for £5. Sh'e googled it to be over £300.

I've had some lovely chazza stuff over the years. Boden knits, Whistles frocks, and an unworn brand new pair of snow boots for dd last week. All the kids books are from there.

Dress and cardi like new for £7!

Crumbles12 Sun 31-Jan-16 18:20:09

I managed to pick up a pink lining changing bag for £3. Was pretty chuffed until I left a banana in the bag too and stained the inside! sad

GreenHamNoeggs Sun 31-Jan-16 18:20:26

Beautiful OP. You and the dress!

Hangrybird Sun 31-Jan-16 18:20:26

I love it! I am so jealous!

JustWantMyMoneyBack Sun 31-Jan-16 18:22:02

Dress and cardi like new for £7. Hopeless case of gurning free. blush

MorrisZapp Sun 31-Jan-16 18:22:53

Bloody good work!

Wardrobespierre Sun 31-Jan-16 18:23:14

Bought a brand new coat for £10 in our local charity shop. Didn't recognise the label as I know nothing about fashion. Google informs me it should have been THREE HUNDRED AND FORTY ENGLISH POUNDS.

JustWantMyMoneyBack Sun 31-Jan-16 18:23:18

Oh great. Stupid phone.

MrsLannister Sun 31-Jan-16 18:28:18

I have that dress! It's one of my favourites, I think it came from one of the 'designery' bits in Dorothy Perkins.

You look gorgeous in it!

Penguin13 Sun 31-Jan-16 18:28:58

I love a good charity shop bargain. Love all the items pictured upthread. My problem is that I have a habit of picking up things that need altering in some way and as my alteration skills are not all that my stash of charidee shop clothes to alter is growing blush . I have now resolved not to buy any more until I complete at least one alteration project.
