June charity shop bargain round up

Phew!  I really thought I would not spend so much this month.  I hurt my back on the 8th June picking elderflowers for champagne making and was pretty much out of action for a good fortnight.  Thankfully, I haven't actually spent a lot, and have given more away than I have accumulated, so there's still plenty of room in the house! 

Right, here's the swag for the month, in no particular order!

Black Yak hat, 50p (bad selfie, free!)

Sona teapot, 50p

Bronze bead cuff, 50p

Jane Norman top, £1

Black bead choker, 50p

Joe Browns t shirt, £1

Converse! £1

Red or Dead for Cancer Research tote, £1

New patterned tights, £1

Howies t shirt £1

Fab vintage curtains, £4

DKNY jeans, £1

M&S white linen trousers, £1

 Laura Ashley blouse, free.  This is actually damaged, and was going to be ragged so I had it for nothing.  It is a size 16 but I like the fabric.  I'm going to attempt to remove the sleeves, take the body part in and resew.  There's  a hole in the front, which I will attempt to hide with a band of velvet or lace, watch this space!!

Jane Norman cropped jeans, £1

Bon Marche jeans, £1.  Certainly a case of don't look at the label!  These jeans are lightweight denim and fit well. 

H&M scarf 50p, and castle necklace, 50p.  Huge scarf in a poly cotton lawn type fabric, and rather unusual pendant, which I have now moved on to a shorter cord.  Looks like that Kirks Folly stuff off QVC!

That's it, folks, I make that £17 spent! 

 Hope you have all had great bargains this past month too! 

I'm linking up, for the first time, to the gorgeous Stylecrone's monthly Hat Attack with this post!
