Other Bargains To Inspire!!

I thought I would show you some more bargains I've picked up over time. I really do like to sing the praises of thrifting at boot sales, flea markets and charity shops- you never know what you will find and someone else's trash can be your treasure. These are some of my favourite buys :-)


Mulberry weekender clipper bag £1, Willow Farm Boot Sale

Missoni Foulard (Scarf) £2, All Aboard Charity Shop


Turquoise Eelskin Leather Saddle Bag £1.50, Dunton Boot Sale


Fendi Wallet/Purse £2, Wanstead Rugby Club Boot Sale


My cheapest find of all -From Wanstead Rugby Club Boot Sale, a Gucci Accessory Collection Satin Purse for 20p !!! PLUS £100!!!

Yes-£100 found in a secret compartment!! Oh yes-I did not find this until about a week later, when I gave the purse a once over-I was totally gobsmacked when one of the compartments revealed a money bag which had 5 old £20 notes in it!!

The bank changed them for modern ones, but this has got to be the ultimate buy so far!

Hi Charlotte-thanks!! I think I am crazy where shoppings concerned-I buy too much!!

Danz said...

Well lucky you finding £100! I've found money in secondhand stuff before but never that much. Make sure to spend it wisely (on more great thrifts of course!)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi danz-It was a while ago now and the money went towards a credit card bill ;-(

Pamcasso said...

Wow! great finds! would love a missoni scarf. I can't believe the prices on all these things!

Sharon Rose said...

Thanks pamcasso! Yes, this is something I've always wanted too, so I was very pleased when the cashier said she only wanted £2-result!!

Siljesfashion said...

I dont understand how you can get all these pieces so cheap! That never happens here, haha.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi Silje-I don't always find things when I go thrifting-believe it or not I sometimes come home empty handed! I suppose its more at boot sales that I get my bargains, especially in the 'posher parts of Essex'-ha ha!!
