I went charity shopping (or thrifting as some people call it)  in Berkhamsted at the weekend and got myself a little treat:


 This lovely crochet blanket was a snip at £5. The colours are so cute, bright and summery – I love it.

It kept my feet warm last night whilst watching Top Gear (admittedly I was stuck into crochet whilst The Boy watched it) and Dragons Den.

I also bought a couple of books to read on my daily commute and The Boy picked up a couple of maps for 75p each (another bargain!)

I love charity shops! I like having a good ol’ rummage about and finding those bargains. Where are your favourite charity shops? Got any tips to share?
