I buy loads of books from charity shops and for 50p to £1 each I consider them real bargains. I read them, then take them to charity bookstalls at 2 local supermarkets for Teenage Cancer and a local special needs school so they benefit too.
My best ever bargain was a vintage Hermes headscarf which cost £1 and I sold it for £150 on Ebay! This weekend I bought some Vanessa Wu trainers for myself. £7 and like new and so comfy. They are animal print with bright red laces and my husband was with me and said “they are just you.” They are £70 online.
I found a Tommy Hilfiger navy down jacket absolutely mint condition for my husband a few months ago. £30 and they are £150 new. He was thrilled!
I know a lot of bigger charities now have Ebay listers working for them but you can still get a bargain if you look around.
