I don't buy clothes especially often, but when I do it's something I love and can't live without. Recently, for some reason, this seems to be knitwear. I know I don't need any more cosy jumpers (here's the evidence if you don't believe me) but I couldn't resist this little beauty on a recent charity shop jaunt. It's blue, cashmere and it was only £4. It would have been madness to leave it behind! The label was from Tesco Finest, so I can only assume they made luxury clothing at some point? Also well documented is my love of cashmere - my favourite jumper of all is this other charity shop find. It's blue, it's cashmere and it was only £1.85. Still my best bargain to date!
The jumper above was purchased on a day out in Bathgate with Tam's mum, aunt and uncle (Tam was at the football, his mum fancied going charity shopping...tough choice for me! Ahem.) It was a good wee place for shopping. We found a bunch of charity shops (and a huge one that was closed, so a return trip is necessary!) and a couple of amazing old cinemas. The Pavillion is now a bingo hall and the Regal is a theatre, so while they're not quite as splendid as they used to be, it's nice to see they're actually still being used. Scottish Cinemas has some fab pictures - plus check out that little one at the bottom, which was demolished in the 1960s. It seems every time I'm looking up a building from a film at work, it was demolished in the 1960s. They were a little too focused on the modern and didn't have much of a nostalgia factor then I guess.
