The Charity Shop Bag

So often when I ask someone in Durban where they got their interesting dress/bag/hat, they reply, 'The Hospice Shop!' And it's always a real bargain what with the Hospice being a charitable (and wonderful) organisation. I believe the shop in Hillcrest is especially good but I haven't been there yet. I did, however, visit the one in Sherwood last Saturday as they were having a mini fete. I found this sweet retro bag for only 40 zars! I've been looking for a bag like this for ages. Navy, a good length and room to carry all the usual suspects - wallet, mobile, makeup. Thanks Hospice! Have you scooped any good charity buys lately?

I go the one in Hillcrest all the time, and agree, I find all sorts treasures for my wardrobe there! I haven't been to the one at Sherwood yesterday.

Great bag!! I never find good things in charity shops. I think it's because I don't have enough patience to root through things looking for the gems!
