Bargain Hunting

Today, I went charity shopping with my dad and found loads of really cute stuff! I love charity shopping in general, I think it's absolutely great! I love the thought of buying something that has a story to tell (I somehow find that extremely fascinating, wondering who it used to belong to before and what they used it for, where did they buy it.....Endless questions to be answered!)
I have recently been desperately looking for a vintage leather suitcase. Ebay was the first place I looked, and they are so incredibly over priced on there it's unbelievable. I think once you mention the word 'vintage' they just go up in price so much! So I decided to take numerous trips to my local charity shops, and after no luck for months, I finally found one today.....Vintage, tan leather and only £2! So perfect for carrying all my little goodies to the Christmas fairs with me!!
I also ended up buying some more vintage (Churchill Blue Willow - I've been wanting these for ages) teacups, cute wooly jumpers and some winter scarves (because it's genuinely so cold up here in north Wales!!)
I have lots more to show you this week (baking, knitting tutorials, beautiful pictures of north Wales - when it stops raining!!)
Hope you're all having a lovely day!!


The lovely Tilda from Hello, Sweetie is having a little blog sale! She has lots of lovely dresses and tops for sale, so if you have time, please take a look!
