Charity Shop Finds | ChristmasFriday, November 20, 2015
I love helping charities especially at christmas (see recent post on charity starts at home?) but sometimes Christmas can be the hardest time to help out as all extra money is going on presents and making your house look festive.
So this year I thought why not kill 2 birds with one stone. Charity Shops are perfect for picking up christmasy bits. As they say someones rubbish is another persons treasure. The Charity shop near me is a brilliant one in a really nice area and always gets some gorgeous items in.
Also if filling up shoe boxes for Christmas charitys then you are helping twice... winner.
The Charity shop near me is a brilliant one in a really nice area and always gets some gorgeous items in. Last week on the way to town I nipped in for a quick rummage. The first things that caught my eye was 2 gift sets. These are immaculate and everything is perfectly sealed, don't worry I double checked. I got the Sanctuary Spa set for £3 and the Next Spa set for £5.
I love giving my present in cute bags and stocking for the children and thought these were perfect and at £1 each who can moan.
The last items I picked up were Christmas films. We have a 5 hour drive on Christmas eve to go to spend Christmas in Southampton so a portable DVD player and christmas DVDs are just what we need. These cost me £1 each and work perfectly.
So have you ever thought about picking up christmasy bits from Charity shops? I know some people will think 'wow she's tight', but why pay more when you can get things cheaper and help people at the same time. I think its genius!!
