Whitchurch Charity Shop Finds

I haven't had time to bargain hunt in charity shops for a while since I started working 6 days a week but I had a whole week off for Easter and I took the chance to have a little snoop around the shops in Whitchurch.
I was looking for things to furnish my room with when I move in to my new house but I ended up buying lots of kitchenware, I can't resist it!


I got the set of 6 glasses for £2. They are so tacky, I love them!


I managed to find something for my room, this print was only 25p and it's going to go on my frame collage wall. I'm going to try and find some more frames and paint them and I might even try and create a little art to put in them.


How could I leave this little beauty there? There were so many lovey tea cups and full tea sets but my collection is pretty big now and I don't need too many more.

Whitchurch in Cardiff is a ruthless place to go bargain hunting, I saw a leather satchel in one shop, went to get some money to pay for it and by the time I got back someone else had nabbed it!! If you are ever in Cardiff you should pop in to Whitchurch, I always find something good in the shops there. It has a lovely high street.

My blue nails were starting to look a little shabby but I didn't have time to paint them again so I just put some of the Barry M Nail Effects on top to refresh them.
Have you picked up any bargains recently? do you love a good rummage in a jumble sale and charity shop?

  11. I love how you fixed your nails. That is a brilliant idea. I will have to try that using the O.P.I. Shatter polish that I have.

    You are a genius!

  21. My mum works in one of the charity shops in Whitchurch which is a great way for me to get rid of clothes I don't want and she picks up some great bargains. She brought home a (proper) retro record player last week, it's fab. She brought home a tea set a few weeks ago too having decided to start collecting them.

    Your tea set is really pretty, it looks so dainty.

  22. I love a good bargain, and thrifting is one of my favorite things to do on a Sunday afternoon. I recently did a haul video about a bunch of stuff I picked up at a salvation army. So fabulous. www.curvycanadian.blogspot.com
