Three thrifty fashionistas

A couple of months ago, I went to Saturday brunch with some of my sister friends from church.  It was a lovely time getting to know some of the younger ladies in our midst as we sat eating delicious food. During our conversations I complimented several of the ladies on their clothing and surprise surprise literally every item I liked was second-hand- what are the chances? Meet the ladies:

“I bought this jumper in a Salvation Army charity shop in Manchester and I don’t think I spent more than a fiver for it. It’s so warm, snugly  and I absolutely love the pattern. It’s also great quality.”

“I love shopping on E-Bay as you can purchase some great items–really unusual pieces at a good price. I loved this jacket-as it’s warm and stylish and an absolute steal at  £13. The jacket is great quality and originally from River Island so I know would retail at a much higher price”.

Holly

“I bought this jacket in a thrift store for £15.  I love it because I can wear it with almost anything and it’s really warm”.

Even though spring is upon us and the weather is getting warmer- now is a great time to pick up your winter bargains. Why? Because many high street stores will be selling their ‘winter’ stock  at a discounted rate such as coats (I tend to buy my winter coats during the Spring Sales). Charity shops are also great places to go, especially as many people will be doing a spot of spring cleaning and donating unwanted clothes in the process. And if you hate the thought of hitting the High Street, check out E-Bay and see what you can pick up?
