Unexpected delights

Some of the best charity shop hunting often comes on from unexpected and unplanned trips. I had a random midweek day off work last week to do a few errands and have a bit of a recharge. My peace was shattered by a call from my bank letting me know my card had been cloned! Helpfully my card was blocked so needed a trip to my local branch to sort a few things out. 

Fortunately, my local bank branch is collocated with a number of charity shops so it seemed a good opportunity for an impromptu rummage. Only managed a small haul this time but it did include two Christmas presents for the small and a lovely autumn coloured Seasalt dress for me!
