    .....I thought I'd just pop in and have a quick peek. See what's nice in Next.

    £37......my skirt cost £37. Oh blimey. I do love it though. I think that's only the second item of clothing (apart from special occasion stuff) that I've ever bought that cost so much.

    Thing is, it's a very soft stripey green skirt, with embroidery and beads etc, and a little floral underskirty bit, and I don't have any really pretty tops to match it.....got some tshirt tops, but they look kind of scuffy next to my nice new skirt.

    And, AND, I got into a size 14...in Next, who's size are fairly small. Yeehaaa!

      I was lucky, I got some Next vouchers for my birthday and have ordered some £35 jeans through the Directory, they should arrive on Saturday. I hope they fit. Would never spend £35 on jeans but seeing as it was my birthday...

      oh, and I got some sunglasses too, they are really cool.

          Looking for a Top.....

          .......in our Charity shops. Found the perfect match yesterday, but it was too small, size 8.

          I'm going to our local shops today, I'll look in those charity shops. We've got some good ones locally. I've had some real bargains - 3 metres of Laura Ashley Sherbourne fabric for 1.50 sold on eBay for more than £45, crocheted blankets bought for 3.50 and sold for £67 on eBay..

          Oh yes, I love the charity shops!

              My Mum has always scoured charity shops and got a ******** mac once, I've seen them go on Ebay for loads of £'s.

                  Charity Shops

                  I volunteered in our local BHF charity shop one year, i had a fantastic time, all the people who came in were real characters, and the stuff we used to get, can you believe staff even got 25% off!!!!
                  And the amount of stuff they were given was unbelievable, it really is a big job sorting it all out (they got some right crap as well!!)

                  They would throw a lot of stuff in a skip as it was no good, i got loads of odd bits off crockery free which we used as target practise!!
                  If anyone has a few spare hours a week () ok dont look at me like that!! It is well worth it...

                    In a past life I was a shop manager for a well known charity and some of the donations that came in were amazing! There were some very bad ones too!!!I spent loads of money while I worked there, it was a great job but totally exhausting!

                    I love a bargain so i'm always popping into our local charity shops, my most recent find was a gorgeous Next coat for £10!!

                      I got a ******** coat too from a charity shop once - £5!! It was in one of the posher parts of Manchester - sold it on Ebay to a guy from America for £50. Not a bad profit really! I would love to volunteer in a charity shop - maybe once the girls have gone to school......
