Last year, got rather excited when I discovered Macklemore – a great songwriter with a decent back story. Thrift Shop immediately caught me. I now realise why.
Spent a day in Norwich yesterday looking for new clothes for my new dawn but failed quite miserably.
Today, I chose the more prosaic surroundings of a retail park closer to home and bought two pairs of decent shoes, new socks and trousers for the princely amount of £65. I was quite smitten with TK Maxx in fact after guffawing at its Primark credentials for years. A pair of shoes I’d seen in Schuh yesterday for £65 were £12. Impressive stuff.
I now need to extend my Thrift Shop search to food which is our largest weekly expense – I want to find some gluten free ciabatta for 50p, some pasta for 60p and some muesli for 70p. Ok the 10p price gradations are a bit contrived but you get my drift? If a pair of shoes, or a pack of socks can have a 80% markdown why not free from food?
An ex pupil Rachel once posted on my wall some Udi’s muesli marked at 50p a bag in B and M Bargains.
But apart from this, I’ve yet to see the free from equivalent of TK Maxx etc.
Can anyone enlighten me please?
