All Clothes, Apart From the Shoes

What a whirlwind of a weekend that was.
I'm still catching up from it now.
Friday evening I went out with friends from school as another reunion looks to be in the offing later in the year which should be fun.
Something quite wonderful happened Saturday morning which I'll share in another post, then G and I had an afternoon trip to the theatre to see The 39 Steps and to round off the day we had friends over for pizza and wine.
Sunday morning we went to the car boot and then to do a quick grocery shop. 
Once home I grabbed a bite to eat and then it was off to see my good friend M to give her her 50th birthday gift and have a good old catch up.
There was a job to do once I got home, info which will have to wait until the next post, and then there was just time to squeeze in the ironing of school uniform before settling down and enjoying the last installments of The Durrells and Home Fires.

There was great excitement upon arriving at the booty this week because the first person we came across was selling all their clothes for 10p an item.
My sister found 11 things and had to go back to her car to drop them off before she could carry on!
My buys from the morning are as follows....
Blue and pink patterned M&S top £1, brand new with tags attached black and white George dress 10p, Fat Face navy stripy top 50p and brand new with tags attached navy M&S sweater 10p.

Rusty brown George cardigan 10p, bird patterned scarf 50p and brown George wedges also 50p.

S took some money with her and paid £2 for this New Look cardigan. It looks like it's only been worn a couple of times and as she's very partial to an animal print she was very pleased with her purchase.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend!

  2. Wow! Such bargains. I bet that lady didn't go home with much after selling things at that price. It sounds like you had a busy but enjoyable weekend.

  3. 10 pence an item is fantastic x

  4. Lisa your Sunday evening sounded very much like mine! I have to confess I will be a little lost without the Durrells next Sunday!

  5. What brilliant buys ... I'm sure the seller must have been so pleased to have sold them all as you were to buy them!

    It does sound like your weekend was a whirlwind of fun!

    Happy Thursday
    Happy Friday

    It's the weekend again soon!

    All the best Jan

  6. What bargain buys!!! I used to love charity shop finds when I was a kid so I can imagine how happy S was!!x
