Charity shopping

IMG_1374My local charity shop usually has some great treasures and last week was no exception.

I came away with a lovely, hardly worn, oversized check jacket which will be perfect for styling up with a dress for dinner, or wearing down with a pair of jeans for a walk in the countryside.

I love finding things like this in charity shops, as you can grab yourself a real bargain and come away with an almost new piece of clothing for a fraction of its original price.

Now, it’s already been a week since I last went. I wonder what treasures will be there next time.

Clothing with a difference

Thinking about what to wear, or want to buy a new outfit on a budget? Then Wastesavers charity, which is based in Newport, might be able to offer something.

The charity recently opened a new shop, called Something to Wear, on St Johns Square. A charity shop with a difference, Wastesavers collects clothing daily from around the city and sorts it so that it can be sold in the shop. They wants to dispel the myth that second hand means second rate and, as a result, the shop has a clean look and they offer good quality clothing at low prices.

Independent shops are a vital part of the community, so if you’re from or heading to Newport for the day, why not check it out?
