Had a good haul at the Hove charity shops yesterday. First a hot pink V-necked top (George at Asda) from Barnado's, then a vintage sparkly silver and black top from Scope, followed by a pink H&M jumper with black stars on it AND a bottle of bubble bath shaped like a bus from Age Concern!!
The sparkly top is an old friend actually - I've had two identical ones previously! Years ago, when we were at uni, my mate bought one from a charity shop, wore it for a few years, got bored of it and gave it to me.
I wore it a lot, but due to its age the lurex part of the knitting was quite brittle and prone to snapping and unravelling. So eventually, reluctantly, I ditched it when it got beyond repair. A few years later I was thrilled to spot its sister in a charity shop - again, that lasted a few years then had to be retired. And now I've found number three!
