this weekend I bought...

topshop duffle coat, AMAZING find, actually found this in the back of the Sue Ryder where I volunteer and squirrelled it away before it got chance to go out to the general public on the shop floor, it’s 80% wool so it’ll be amazingly toasty in winter, and it’s a size 12 😮 this is why I had reservations about it, I’m always buying stuff to ‘slim in to’ but this is a lovely fit, the only place it’s a bit squishy is the tops of my arms… anyway it was less than a tenner, I’ve hung it out on line and given it a good febreeze as it’s dry clean only and there’s only one in town and it’s super expensive 😩 336 more words

National Thrift Shop Day 2017

Apparently it’s National Thrift Shop Day (who decides these things?). So to celebrate, I thought I’d share with you my top three favourite thrift shops. It was hard to decide because there are so many that I like to visit, so I thought I’d share one local to me in the Fraser Valley, one in Vancouver, one in Victoria and one overseas, in Scotland. 826 more words

today I wore...

these jeans by NEXT via Sue Ryder

who has issues with the fit of jeans? 🙋🏼

theyre either too short in the body, too short in the leg, fit everywhere but won’t do up… the list goes on… my absolute holy grail of jeans are TopShop ‘Joni’ jeans but I don’t want to replace my now tattered pairs until I’ve reached my Slimming World goal weight so I’m making do with the odd pair that I can find in charity shops… 96 more words

I spotted this in Saint Catherine’s Hospice when I took a post volunteering stroll the long way home. I’ve been looking for something to put my phone in when I’m hiking / at the gym and this is just the thing. 19 more words

Under a Dollar

This past week I revisited a thrift shop in the Okanagan, the hospital auxiliary thrift shop in Oliver BC. This is what I call a “classic” thrift shop: not huge, a little messy, bit of a ‘garage sale’ feel, super nice volunteers, supports a great cause. 195 more words
