Recent Charity Shop & Ebay Buys ♥

I thought I'd show you some of my recent second hand purchases that I've bought from charity shops and ebay. I love buying second hand clothes from ebay and charity shops (or chazza's, as I call them) as you can get some real bargains.

I've never done a post like this before, do let me know if you'd like to see more. I was inspired by Imogen's regular car boot haul posts - she always finds such amazing things at cheap prices.

There aren't many car boots in London and so I'm stuck mostly with chazza's and ebay. The charity shops in London can be very pricey and all the good stuff gets snapped up quickly so you have to keep your eyes peeled!



I bought this pretty pale pink top on ebay for £1.10. It's originally from Primark so I didn't want to spend too much, and I think £1.10 is a good price! I love the colour and the gorgeous embroidered collar. This will look really nice with jeans and nude pumps.





This is a vintage Coalport China brooch that I bought from a charity shop for £2.50. I love the rose and daisy detail and it will look great pinned on my coat in the autumn!





I picked up this snazzy 1970s glass watermelon tray in a charity shop for £2.99. It had been in one of my local charity shops for ages and I kept admiring it so I bought it! Not sure what to use this for, maybe to serve colourful cocktails on, or to use as pretty serving plate for a platter of exotic fruit!


Have you been second hand shopping recently? What have you bought?

  1. Loved this post!! (And thank you for the mention!) I did not expect to read that that pretty top is originally Primark! It's gorgeous! The brooch is also great, I love pinning them onto the collar of a winter coat too. The tray is perfect for cocktails! Xx
