In my home town there are many charity shops that I love to have a rummage through. You can find some really good quality things at bargain prices. I know there are people who don't shop at charity shops at all but they don't know what they are missing. Many times I have got things in a charity shop that I needed, wanted or sometimes I have even found things I never knew existed. Here are a few examples from the last week of times I have had success while shopping in charity shops.
As I was walking through town the other day, I spotted a Doctor Who book in a window of a charity shop, I stopped and had a look at it but told myself I didn't need it and carried on walking to work. When I walked back later that day, I spotted it again and lost my internal battle and went in and brought it! When I was inside, I realise the book was almost new as the spine of the book wasn't creased at all and it had only be donated that morning. This book was one I had considered buying myself from book stores when I had seen it previously but didn't want to spend £12.99 so I was so pleased to get it for only £1.99.

Tilly has so many fancy dress costumes but she wanted to be something scary and mum was able to buy her a bride of Frankenstein costume in a local charity shop. It was really cheap as it didn't have any of the accessories with it, but as luck would have it we were able to go into another charity shop and buy the veil that matched, all for a fraction of the price of a new one. It was defiantly a bargain.
My town is quite small and there are only a few clothes shops. Therefore I love having the charity shops as they offer a higher variety of options. Many times they have clothes from shops that being a non driver, I rarely get to visit. Just the other day I needed a new pair of trainers but couldn't find any that I liked. When I popped into a charity shop on my home, I was able to get a almost new pair that I liked in my size and for cheaper then in other shops.
