My Sister's Birthday Presents


Today is my sister C's birthday and here are her presents.
As per usual all, bar one, came from a car boot, a charity shop or a jumble.
The pink shoes were something C chose herself a few weeks back. Looking at the bottom of them they look like they may have only been worn once, possibly twice. They were £1.00.
 The grey socks are the one brand new item and they also cost £1.00.
The shoe coaster was 30p.


I would be quite happy to keep any of this next little lot. The sundae dishes are originally from Laura Ashley and were £1.58. The cereal bowl was 50p and the heart saucer was 49p.
The fabric the bowl is sat on is a fleece PJ top patterned with scotty dogs and polka dots, another item my sister chose and this was 20p.


Cath Kidston dusters still in their packaging for £1.00.



A pretty wire and beaded heart which can be used to display photos or cards. 
This was also £1.00.


This is the item the above heart is laying on. A furry black gilet for yet another £1.00


This navy cardi is a long skinny one and I like it's delicate pattern. This was a bargain at 20p.


Not a great photo as it doesn't show the subtle colours of this long snuggly scarf and makes it look a bit dirty! This was bought back in January and was 50p.


Nearly at the end now and here we have a beige and black floaty fabric top which cost 20p.



I think is my favourite piece of clothing. The bird and heart motif is just so sweet. This was where the final pound was spent.


As always our budget is £10 and these items tot up to £9.97.

I like this idea very much. I often include charity shop/vintage finds with my gifts, particularly at christmas, for example, a bottle of home made bramble brandy with two beautiful vintage/charity shop glasses, or a charity/vintage silver spoon with some home made jam. I think these gifts are so much more personal and original than many others x

So many wonderful bargains yet again! I don't think that charity shops near me sell any item for less than £2.00! You have done so well with your purchases. I hope your sister loved them all! x

Great bargains you picked up especially those dusters! For me pretty dusters are a must they help make cleaning feel less of a chore.
