I bought a lovely Hobbs dress from the charity shop this summer for £5. Probably retails for close to £100!

I love them too, we are really close to a lovely area and the charity shops are fab for clothes, bric a brac and books.

I often come home with reams of books at 50p each from the cancer research shop.

My favourite recent bargain was a blue willow tea set a couple of weeks ago, marked at £5 but I gave them £10. I'd gotten a blue willow bowl that was my nans and wanted to add to the collection.

I might go tomorrow, without the children, charity shops and toddlers are not a good mix, lol.
