27th-28th June: Pasta, Prosecco, Pizza, Peroni

So the cold from the previous week lingered disgustingly on. I was all mucus. Aware of how hideous I was I stayed at home and only ventured out for carbs and painkillers. Luckily for me Emily's dad came over after work on the Monday to help out. My dad came over on the Tuesday and … Continue reading 27th-28th June: Pasta, Prosecco, Pizza, Peroni

York Charity Shopping

Toddler boots: £1.50 size 6 so might be a while until she fits them but nevermind Sparkly shoes 🙂 I was really happy to find these. £4 seem nearly new from Next. (If you are size three and like gold heels they had three pairs at Sue Ryder which were 👌🏻) £2 Nutmeg, current size … Continue reading York Charity Shopping

29th May: Treat yo’self

If you are an avid subscriber and have very little to fill your memory space you may remember I bought this cheap wooden walker which seemed really sturdy and heavy but started tipping and scared me. So I found this on Facebook marketplace for £5 which is much better. One of my friends did actually … Continue reading 29th May: Treat yo’self

Acomb shopping trip (and a bit of Garforth and Sherburn)

Bit of a strange background for these photos. Baby is asleep on the sling so in an attempt to get the most out of the nap I'm sitting on a massive swing and photographing my charity shop bits. I look a bit weird hanging out on my own photographing a giant snake and there is … Continue reading Acomb shopping trip (and a bit of Garforth and Sherburn)

Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

I'm branching out now. I'm not just sticking to the city centre, I crossed the river. Such dedication. I think this very creepy baby is a good place to start. Look at that horrible tummy button and three fingered hands. Hideous. £1 An excellent selection of dinosaurs but I think I'll regret the purchase when … Continue reading Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

Wetherby Charity Shop Finds

So I'm stuck in the car outside the shops with a sleeping baby again which means the backdrop is not quite Instagram ready, it's just my steering wheel...but I might as well make use of my time! Shoes for me (obvs) £3 from Primark but I think they are unwornBoden t-shirt for me £3.75Jo Jo … Continue reading Wetherby Charity Shop Finds

A Haxby Haul

So I'm in mixed minds about all this charity shopping. Part of me thinks that stocking up on cheap clothes before I need them saves me lots of money as if I wait until I NEED something I'll probably not find it and have to pay more on the high street. But even if it's … Continue reading A Haxby Haul

Garforth Charity Shop Haul

We ventured out in the miserable weather to go to Garforth. I don't find loads of things for me in Garforth but I've had good luck with clothes for Emily. Today's lot came to £17.25 This is the priciest of today's finds at £4, however it is Ralph Lauren and we are going to my … Continue reading Garforth Charity Shop Haul

A particularly good baby charity shop haul (Selby and Howden)

I won't feel too bad about getting nothing for the baby yesterday as we went crazy on baby stuff today. Everything is pictured below and came to just £19 in total. I'm feeling rather proud. The little pirates above were only £1, they are supposed to be skittles but I thought when she has little … Continue reading A particularly good baby charity shop haul (Selby and Howden)

York Charity Shop Haul

Once again nothing for Emily. Bad mum. A few bits for me though. I couldn't try the jumper (above) on in the shop as I was both babywearing, breastfeeding and browsing all at once. However I did manage to try on four skirts whilst doing all those things so I felt like a brilliant multitasker. … Continue reading York Charity Shop Haul

Knaresborough & Selby Charity Shop Haul

These charity shop posts are just pure showing off as I feel like a professional bargain hunter. Anyway here are today's finds from Knaresborough (above and below) I was so pleased with myself when I found the Boden ex sample stuff in Selby. Turns out they are in lots of Scope stores. Still exciting though. … Continue reading Knaresborough & Selby Charity Shop Haul

20th April: Batman in Bury

Bury is Bury St Edmunds, we did not take a mini break to Bury, Lancashire. Ahh mini breaks, I feel like my life has been lacking in mini breaks lately. However this weekend has been WONDERFUL. My sister (who apparently Emily calls 'Auntie Jem Jems' despite the fact I'm fairly sure the most Emily manages … Continue reading 20th April: Batman in Bury

My name is Sophie and I have a charity shopping problem. But I find so many good BARGAINS I'm going to try and show them off before I put them away so here is my selection from Selby (plus a couple of bits from Harrogate) Top row: Boden dress left (midi) £20 and above the … Continue reading Charity Shop Addict
