Charity Shop, Vintage and Vinted Finds May/June Edition

Summer is a great time to hit the charity shops or to look on Vinted, as many people are having sort outs to make way for their new Summer clothing, It means that if you are going on holiday, you can add some new bits to your Summer wardrobe without breaking the bank, leaving you more spending money when you get into your resort. In addition to this, you may be travelling to different towns and areas where there are charity shops, and this may mean that you are able to find some real bargains in new places. So far this year I have travelled to Wales and Devon and have found some great bargain pieces of both vintage and designer labels. Travelling abroad could also be a way of finding vintage and thrifted items through both vintage and ‘goodwill’ stores.

The items below are all finds I have made over the last few months. I didn’t buy them all – some were not my size or style, but they are all great examples of what you can find out there for very little cost. They show it is quite easy to find something that you are looking for – for instance an outfit for a specific occasion, pieces for your holiday, a vintage dress for an event, an outfit for a wedding, with just a little time and patience. The Vinted finds also show that looking online can also be an effective way of finding both new and vintage pieces at the right price points.
