Pampering on the cheap............


I like nice things to put in my bath; besides the homemade soap etc I make, I buy some too, but the prices of the decent stuff are quite prohibitive sometimes, and as usual, you get what you pay for, and I find the cheaper things are a false economy. My latest trick is the charity shops; I've had some lovely stuff over the past few months - bath oils, bubbles, soaps, etc. All brand new and unopened, obviously unwanted gifts (bit sad, that.....). Look out for boxed sets too, usually going for a fraction of the price. I picked up these three on Friday - the purple soap and Imperial Leather were 20 p each, the bottle of bath oil was 1.00 - it and the purple soap were made by Arran Aromatics - their stuff is lovely, but quite dear, so chuffed to find these in the Scope shop. As always, worth a rummage around on the shelves in these shops, you never know what's lurking there!!

What fantastic finds - I'm a big charity shop fan and am always excited to hear about what others have found in their local charity shops.
