Surely I'm not the only person to know the real reason to go shopping in August. The stores are basically THROWING THINGS AWAY. Well, OK, you do have to pay, but really, they might as well say, "here, help yourself."
It's not just the dregs of summer clothes that you can scoop up a bargain on. Sometimes it's those things that you can wear, and wear, and wear. Tee shirts, jewellery!! shoes, etc. I particularly like to get a nice sundress that I can add a tee shirt, waistcoat and boots with as the weather gets colder. Bridges the seasons, and if you're packing, it's a handy way to change the look of your outfits with just a few switch-arounds.
I was thrilled as punch to find a lovely pewter looking bracelet that looks like braided rope for £2.50, which I thought was a bargain. At the till, it had been reduced to £1.50. See? Throwing it away. That bracelet, along with 4 others, and it's a great look. Pleases me anyway, and my opinion rules supreme in how I dress!
Also found 2 incredible pair of shoes (that can bridge into autumn) for the princely sum of £5 each. That's better than charity shop prices, and these are new. And returnable!!
All I need now is a warehouse for my inventory and a well organised catalogue system so I know what I've got. Now there's an ambition!
Has anyone else found August to be bargain hunters paradise?
