So I am off to a hair appointment and I am walking down a local parade of shops. As I zoom past a charity shop, this beautiful candelabra catches my eye. I stop, walk back and just look at it. I stand there thinking….. ‘Should I? I have always wanted one of those. Maybe it’s a sign. I think it’s calling me to buy it. I’ll just find out how much it costs’.
I walk in, take a closer look and it’s even better close up. It’s really heavy and just looks ‘grand’. I tell the lady working in the shop that I have always wanted a candelabra. After we have had a little chat about it, she tells me it’s £25.
As I am standing there, I think, £25…..urm. I don’t really need one, but it just looks lovely. Can I afford it? What shall I do? I suppose it is for charity after all.
She then tells me that Bob who works in the shop has spent hours and hours out the back cleaning it up – and that was it. I was sold. How could I turn down buying it after so much love and effort has gone into restoring it. So I bought it and I don’t regret it at all. Obviously it’s not the real mccoy at £25, but every time I look at it, I just love it.
I have never really shopped in charity shops before, but you never know what other pre-loved treasures you can find. So this is 100% most definitely My Star Buy Of The Week.
