Charity Shop finds

After our (Becksie’s) epic fail regarding the purchase of dining chairs we were feeling some what despondent about our favourite way of purchasing things. Until……. we spotted this little beauty outside of the same charity shop said chairs came from!!!!charity 2

The charity shop has only gone and TOTALLY redeemed itself! This little beauty was only £2.95!!! Team Pugh have already had £2.95’s worth of fun from it! It has also helped us to decide there is a good chance Lizzie is right handed and not a lefty like her daddy!

We love charity shops as you never know what your going to get. We must say some of the highly branded really picky about stock charity shops annoy us. We like what we call an ‘old fashioned’ charity shop, the sort where anything goes and the prices are reasonable.

Team Pugh have always been fans of getting pre-loved items either in charity shops, on freecycle or at a carboot. Lately Ms Allsopp seems to be getting out there and shouting about filling one’s home for free (although we notice she is driving miles to source this ‘free’ stuff – Aberdeen to Birmingham!) which is fantastic and a great media reminder that you don’t always have to rush out and buy new. In the spirit of ‘filling one’s home for free’ we thought we’d share just a few of the treasures Team Pugh have got over the years:

Regular blog featurers - these lovely blue bowls came from a charity shop in Birmingham. There used to be three but someone (IAN) broke it!
