I went to the charity shops twice last week and got myself some bargains.

A fab old ladies style purse for £1. I have to go for old lady style purse because modern purses tend not to have a decent enough section for change. And it's bright blue!

This is really a present for Bumble as it is the same age as him and it IS his 21st birthday at some stage this month!

I have no idea what I am going to do with this trim but I couldn't leave it behind on the shelf! 50p

A set of 4 Mario and Zelda curtains - I got these for the fabulous fabric!

A skirt that still had the tags on for £2.50. I wore it the other day and it is very comfy - as skirts go that is!

A dress that looks awful on the hanger (and it's a bad photo of it too) but that looks fabulous on especially with a waist cinching belt. I even got a compliment from a stranger when wearing this on Friday :) £2.50

A cute looking yet very expensive new coat for Anya. I think it is one that the local prep school uses so Anya can pretend she goes to a posh school :)

And this will come in very handy for the winter - a nice thick crocheted cardi that can be double or single breasted dependant on how you do it up. This was expensive at £4.50 but it's gorgeous and I'm glad I bought it.

I also got some trousers for Anya (Kenzo no less) for 75p and some books to turn into tags but I didn't get photographs of those.

You always find the best things! Charity shops here should be called rubbish tips, they are awful...well unless you want books.

Please, please, please, please, please (50,000 times) can I buy some of that Mario fabric off you?
I'm going to make boy*jelly a Mario PE bag as he's *obsessed* with Mario-world at the moment and it would make a fab-lining.
Would only need about half a metre?
(another 30,000 times)
