Charity Shopping

Posted on


As I mentioned in my last post, I have bought a few things since moving here…But mostly second hand. Have a look at my findings:


I really liked the colour of the top that is from one of the big high street stores. I think it goes well with this 90s denim skirt I bought in a second hand shop years ago.


Yet another small bag that I couldn’t resist. I find it very hard to find nice big, convenient bags but somehow always find smaller handbags. It is actually dark blue although it looks black…


Erm…yes it’s a bag. But I really liked the different textures and the colour…


I love big knitted cardigans, this is from the 60s or 70s by Marks & Spencers. Again, I like the different textures, and it goes well with many things.


This is probably my favourite item I’ve bought in a while. It’s a hand-woven wool/mohair scarf by Avoca Handweavers, Ireland’s oldest surviving business! (Just found that out from Wikipedia)


In Scotland you’ll obviously also find kilts in charity shops 🙂 The kilt and the jacket are both by Thomas Gordon & Sons, a Glasgowian company. You can tell that these are of good quality from the fact that they weigh a ton! (Btw, the pleated part should be at the back, I just thought it looked nicer in the front)

We visited a cute flea market yesterday, will do a post on that soon…:)

Time for supper!

PS. The kilt is not for me!
