Bargain books!

All these books....



and these too...



for £2.50! My charity shop bargains for this week. A couple of them retail out at over £15 each and two are brand new. Awesomely, knicker-wettingly bargaintastic :)

I am proud to feel smug and gleeful, and am EVEN considering leading guided charity shop tours in the local area, with stop-offs for cake and coffee to refuel. What a great business idea...

that is a great shop, I love hairy mclarys bone, bottomly potts is the best!!
Sign me up for the tours but be aware of the fighting over items that will ensue in these tours, maybe its not such a good idea!!x

I have to laugh at the thought of a tour...I would totally join in if I were closer, I think it's a fantastic and FUN idea!!!!

I have a few of those - great buys for £2.50!!!! I am sad to say our charity shops rarely charge under £1 for any book. Hmph.

What a load of finds - fantastic!

Fabtabulous finds! Of the three charity shops in our town, two never seem to charge less than £2 per book and the other rarely charges more than 20p! You can guess which one I make a bee line for. xx

I know - some charity shops are HORRENDOUSLY over-priced aren't they? Some in nearby towns are staffed with 90-year-old relics named Mabel who think it's OK to price some smelly scabby shoes from Asda at twenty quid! I remember back in the day where everything was like 50p. Until eBay became popular. I might start a TV show 'Charity Shop Challenge' - find a bargain, in an hour, with £2 in your pocket. Think it'll catch on??!
