Thrift Shopping Joy..

Hey Bloggers...long time no speak?

Well I'm still in limbo at the moment, still waiting to hear from the lawyers about the move date, I think we are in the final stages, so hopefully next week we will have a better idea of when we need to pack up.

Well, I can't really show you any photos of much at the mo (So I have included some little doodles, hope thats ok!)

The house is looking 'lived in', I can't really be bothered to plump cushions any more as we could be out of here in 2 to 3 I'm making the most of lounging about!

Since I last popped by my little spot of blogland I have rediscovered something, that I have not really enjoyed for over a year, and thats visiting the local charity (or thrift shops). Up until recently, my local shops, have been well, a little lacking...then I came across some new secondhand shops to stop by on my lunch break...

And I have really picked up some bargins!

As a 30 something, I have in recent years, really lost interest in fashion.  I think, for me anyway since turning 30 some 7 years ago, I have really struggled with what to wear, and have been completely uninspired.  

That was until 'Middleton Fever' happened, and 2 very elegant, stylish ladies really came on the scene.
Although they are ..ahem a little younger than me, I have to confess that I love all the beautiful clothes that Kate and Pippa Middleton wear, and the majority are from the high street...

So what started as a 'Bag Crush'

Yummy Bristol Modalu Bag!

has turned into something else, and boy have I purchased some bargins this week...I think my favourite was a practically new Zara Grey Cashmere jumper for the grand total of £3.00, from one especially good charity shop in Bath.

So any way dear Bloggers, hope you are happy and well, where ever you are in the blogosphere...

I will be back soon with some more bloggy waffle!

Heres to bargin hunting!!

Love Sam xx

The picturesque town of Devizes has 6 charity/secondhand shops in the centre alone. All within walking distance from Old Man Carters' coffee and biscuit emporium :)

I love your little drawings that go with ths post :) I found the same thing when I was in my thirties...felt too old to dress like a teenager but not yet ready for Frumptown. It's great to find a new inspiration!Btw...older than that now and definitely NOT going to frumptown!xx
