For those of you who do not know my deep dark secret, I am a charity shop/thrift shop addict. I love finding deals at these places. I can't seem to walk by one without going in to see if there is something I cannot live without. :)
Any town of any size in England is sure to have charity shops. Lots of charity shops. And I have to check them all out. (I am sure it's a rule somewhere. :)
These days I am mainly looking for videos and books but occasionally something else is on my list. For the last month or so I have been looking for a pair of "dressy but not too dressy" shoes since the ones I brought over here no longer make the cut.
I have even looked in "normal" shoe stores without any luck. Amazing, right?
Well today I hit the jack pot. I found a pair of black Clark's with a short heel in my size that had NEVER been worn. They were pristine. And they set me back a whole 5 pounds 59 pence. Can't beat it. A similar pair online is listed for 60 pounds!
I tried to convince Mike that we could go out to dinner with all the money I saved but he just wasn't buying it (my story or dinner). :) Oh well, at least I have the shoes.
