If you compliment any of my possessions, I will proudly reply with a cost and place of purchase. This is the new bragging.
No longer are we gloating about spending thousands on a tiny handbag with that expensive label embellished on to it.
Oh no, that is so last decade. Nowadays, the bigger the bargain the better street cred you earn.
Plus, if it comes from a charity shop this is double points as you’re helping a worthy cause along the way.
I love finding a designer outfit for a night out from my local charity shops. If I need a coat I go browse charity shops.
And I no longer have the post-shopping spree guilt because if I don’t like it after one wear I can donate it again or flog it.
So here are some of my charity shop finds:
Paul’s Boutique gilet from Age UK Wakefield, £5. (Photo by Ronel Martin).
Lianne Marie Freeman: I love vintage homeware got all of these for £2.50 from the st Anne’s hospice in Newport www.anklebitersadventures.co.uk
