How are you doing? for today's topic, I thought I could about a few items I purchased while working in a charity shop. As you make have heard early this year I started working in a charity and have now been doing for a few month and can say I'm really enjoying it. Every day I'm meeting new people and learning new things, and I can say I really enjoy working on the till it's quite fun and I get to talk to the customers every day so that's another nice thing.
While working in a charity, I've managed to get my hands on a few goods, and I thought I'll show you guys because come on who doesn't love a good bargain am right or am I right? As I write I'm actually drinking a glass of prosecco and; listening to music. "See my flying London to La turning up in premium economy" Right sorry, about got side tracked let's get back to the topic and start with iteam one shall we? .
Family The Greatest Gift Picture frame
1. First I'm going to be starting on with this picture frame, It's a silver mirrored frame which says Family The Greatest Gift, and since I've been doing up my room (post to come once fully done) I decided to grab my self a frame.I can put family pictures in, on one side I have a picture of me and my dad then in the middle, I have a picture of my real mum and dad. Finally, I have a picture of me and my twin when we were about 2 I believe. This frame fits well with the theme of my bedroom which I'm excited to put up. This frame also cost about£2.50 which is a total bargain.

2. Next up I'm going to be talking about this handbag, I
picked up from Scope. When I saw this back I thought It was rather cool design,
and then when I opened it I saw a silver design inside. At first, I thought it was strange, but then my manager told me it's one of those cool bags, where you put an ice block in and keep your lunch or drinks cool if you're doing a day out.
I believe this bag was about £4.50 which isn't too bad for a handbag with a cool design. I don't really have much to say about this item a part from it's served me well for days out and long trips in the car.
Marks & Spencers Coats
I found a similar one on the Marks and Spencer's for £79.00 and well I can clearly tell you I got mine a lot cheaper from Scope charity shop.I got mine at priced £8 which was again an amazing bargain which is was lucky enough to have gotten. If you guys can find the actual price of this Jacket then drop me a comment in the comments below because I'd love to know.
Just look how smart that coat looks, it'll be great for any smart events and trust me it's so warm and I still can fit a jumper on underneath it. What I love about this design is the gold and the style of the jacket it's different but smart different I believe and it was such a bargain. (Sorry about the background this picture was taken at work, so couldn't really do much about the clothes etc.
4. Finally, but not least, we have these lovely 2 set earrings, now normally I wouldn't buy earrings from a charity shop but after seeing these that changed. These set were 1/2 priced marked from £2 and I managed to get them £1 each which again was a total bargain. Now I do have my ears pierced but I haven't worn earrings in a while so this could hurt when putting them.
Now I do have my ears pierced but I haven't worn earrings in a while so this could hurt when putting them. Let me know below in the comments which set are your favorites, mine has to be the bows with the Perl balls attached to them. Have you also ever bought jewelry from a charity shop before?
Tie - Dye Asos Jumper
Lastly, we have this tie dye jumper originally from Asos, £15.50 but aye I picked this up from Scope for £4.50 now that is what I call a bargain, and what I love about this jumper is that it's an oversized jumper so it's comfy and it's perfect for those wintery nights especially in December. I have linked a similar jumper from Asos but men's as that's all I could find that were closer to the jumper I have.
It's amazing too as what you can find in a charity, and most of the time the stuff it still brands new with tags on and you can even find good brands of clothing in all charity shops, not pictured but I brought a Mickey Mouse jumper from H&M for about £3 from British Heart Foundation. So if you find your self outside a charity shop pop in and have look around, you never know what you may find these days.
Anyway's this is part 1 of charity shop bargains, I have part 2 coming in a couple of weeks, but I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and do let me know in the comments below what's your favorite item listed above I'd love to know.
