Charity Shop Karma
I have been looking for a new skirt.
Not just any skirt.
I wanted a winter white skirt.
It had to be knee-length.
And ideally made out of corduroy.
I scoured the shops and couldn't find one.
I searched online shops and still no trace.
And then I walked into one of my favourite charity shops - Scope in Liverpool.
The staff there are always so friendly and the quality of clothes on offer is the best around.
The shop is located close to the all singing all-dancing Liverpool One (which I hate but that's another story).
And there it was, hanging on the edge of the rail.
A winter white corduroy skirt in my size and length.
It was from H & M and cost me £3.95.
And what made the experience even better was I met Amanda, a poet, who recently visited the prison where I work.
I think Karma is paying me back for my year-long spending freeze.
What's your best charity shop find?
