I love a good charity shop haul, I’ve not however shared one on here for a really long time. I’ve not actually found the time to have a look through my local charity shops for a little while, so when Rob suggested we pop out to look in a couple I jumped at the chance.
I’ve been on the lookout for some hand knitted vintage sweaters and cardigans for a while, as they work so well over vintage dresses in the winter as well as with some of my other vintage outfits. So I was delighted to stumble upon some lovely hand knitted cardigans in a shop near me. I used to volunteer in a charity shop when I was join my teens, and there was an old lady who used to knit all day because she enjoyed it and then donates her makes to the charity shop. So I’m wondering if this is something similar as there were so many knits in there. I chose 3 things that i know I’ll wear all the time.
First up was this cute sweater that I’m planning to wear with my high waisted jeans. I really like knitwear with shorter leaves as they look great as part of a vintage look. This only cost £1 so it was a fantastic bargain.
Next was this lovely pink cardigan which fits beautifully, this will go well with so many of my vintage dresses. This cost £5.
I also spotted this wonderful yellow cardigan, which is so bright and cheerful. This was also £5.
I then went on to another charity shop near me where every item costs £1.99. I’ve found some amazing vintage stuff in there before and some fantastic bargains.
I found two things there, firstly this cute playsuit from Miss Selfridge with pretty flower buttons. I’ll get loads of wear out of this in the summer, but I might try it with tights and boots for the colder months.
I also got this lovely leather vintage handbag. I can never resist a classic bag and this one was in lovely condition. I’m going to give it a good clean and polish this week.
What do you think of my finds? I’ve really missed charity shopping so I’m going to try to do it a bit more from now on. It’s a great way to support charities as well as being a green and affordable option for getting new clothes. I’ll also be donating some of my own stuff to make room for the new.
