Cool Hunting

There's not much to beat getting in the car with a like-minded friend and driving to a new place to search the charity shops. A new town is unchartered territory, will the pickings be rich, overpriced or just tatty Primarni cast-offs? We are nervous, chatting away nineteen-to-the-dozen, singing loudly along to the radio and wondering aloud if today will bring memorable finds or will we come back empty-handed with nothing but a slap-up lunch in Wetherspoons to show for our trip.

Our initial qualms were soon forgotten as our foray into the wilds of Shropshire brought bountiful rewards.
 
Just a few of my finds were this 1960's worsted wool kick pleat skirt for £2.50; an original 1980's black bodysuit, still with the maker's tags attached, for 99p; a 1960's silk scarf for 49p and some vintage Roland Cartier boots for £3.99.

More will be revealed tomorrow......
