(Slowly beginning to catch up with these posts now)
I'd been on the lookout for a tartan scarf for a while, and managed to get this checked one (not quite the style I was after, but I like it) at the Cancer Research shop for £2.50.
The little gold rose brooch was about 75p, I think, and is from the Martin House Children's Hospice shop, where I also got this book:
I think my love for anything brash and 80s, ridiculous jumpers in particular, might've influenced the decision.
To be fair, I would like to learn to knit; bit late for a New Year's resolution though, maybe next year.
I also picked up this great cardigan which has fast become one of my favourites.
I actually saw this in the window whilst the shop was closed over Christmas, was so chuffed it was still there.
The decorative bit on one of the batwing sleeves is quite unusual, with little applique flowers, beads and pearls sewn on.
And I can't tell you how soft it is; in the window I thought it was mohair, but it is in fact angora and lambswool- so cosy! It was only £3 too.
More posts to come, lots of new stuff!
