I've always loved charity shops! Since being a little girl I would always act embarrassed when my mum would drag me into Scope to look through the books but there was always a little part of me that was enthralled by all of the nic nacs deemed as junk by their previous owner. What would make someone give this stuff away I'd think as I would flip through the pages of a tatty Point Horror book. Since then I've been an avid Charity Shop scourer, unable to walk past the doors of the British Heart Foundation without a quick peek. As the old saying goes, one girls trash is another girls treasure, or something like that.
Yesterday I had a good old rake through the second hand shops of Durham and thought I'd share my haul with you lovely lot. I have to say, I'm rather proud of my finds.
This old barometer is possibly my new favorite thing in my home. Unfortunately it doesn't work, but for 50p I can't really complain.
These silhouettes were discovered nestled in the bottom of a box filled with broken frames. They weren't priced so the wonderful lady let me take the whole set for £2.50.
Another ceramic deer, I couldn't resist.
I got two more suitcases to add to my pile for the measly sum of £15 for the pair.
And upon opening the smallest case we found this third place prize for a county show. I'd like to think it's the prize for the third biggest marrow in show. I love marrows.
