My £20 Charity Shop Challenge

Today I fancied doing a bit of retail therapy. I'd set aside one day and a budget of a mere £20. As with most charity shop visits, it the luck of the draw on what you'll come home with. 
Sometimes you come home with  nothing, other times you hit the jackpot.

This time I was exceptionally lucky. 

Metallic finish leather mesh heeled court shoes

Three bangles (the blue one was actually carved) 

A vintage hand painted silk parasol

A pair of cherry print peep toe slingback shoes

Today's charity shop finds came in well under £20. In fact these items only came to a mere £11.25. 
Two of those items came from  the British Heart Foundation charity shop situated in the Broadmarsh Shopping Centre in Nottingham City Centre

  Here's the shop. 
(It's one of my favourite city centre charity shops)

Can you spot my 'new to me'  cherry print shoes?

Rather pleased..... :-)


  1. Great finds! Love the cherry shoes :)

  2. Sorry for the late reply Josie-Mary. Just got back form my holiday. They're fantastic. Seriously 1950's/rockabilly. Do you thrift shop?
