When I was home over the break I did a lot of charity shop shopping. Mostly because there is literally nothing else to do in Suffolk and also because it makes for a good break from working. Whenever I'm home the first thing that is usually said is 'Oh you have to see this great xyz that I bought from Sue Ryder/EACH/Oxfam/Cancer Research.'
A particularly lucrative day out was a trip to Diss for the auction followed by a cheeky browse of the shops. I managed to pick up a 1940s herringbone tweed suit for The Boy which was my big find as well as a 1966 copy of the Hobbit to replace the battered family edition and a crocodile skin handbag. Dorothy had a really good run with a £6 cherry red wool coat and a silk Austen Reed dress for a steal.
Here are some of the other things we found.
I hope you're all having a great week. I'm just waiting for all my essays to kick in...
