If you have stumbled upon my site, I’m excited to welcome you and I hope you can stay awhile.

In this little spot of the internet that I’m carving out for myself, I hope to share a love of charity shopping and a few other things that attract my attention as an unabashed romantic.  Being an expat from Canada, I appreciate just how unique the charity shop is here in the UK and that it really does appeal to such a wide spectrum of people.

Whether you pop in for the fun, the deal, or the cause, the charity shop has something to get you excited.  I escape to the “bargain boutiques” any chance I get, and it is usually for all of the reasons above.  In our home, my most cherished treasures have been adopted from the cluttered shelves of the charity shop and a few trifles were little more than a loan before returning to those same shelves for another lucky treasure hunter.

If the charity shop is a favourite retreat, or treat for you, stay tuned as I share my finds, projects and spots in greater London and beyond…
