For charity

Today I went to Gelsenkirchen to visit Jana.
With the doggy in tow (who then got his own christmas elf costume at Tedi -I’m sure there’ll be pictures in december).

turtle neck-Primark, belt-colloseum, overskirt+1.petticoat selfmade, grey tulle skirt-river island/uk, tights-NewYorker, legwarmers-h&m, shoes-Demonia

So we went to the welfare shop. Secondhand shops (real 2ndhand shops, not those crazy expensive nonsense shops with 50bucks-socalled-70s-nylonshirts) are so much fun. And you can really finds treasures!

I still whine about my old kids books, which I took with me when I moved out -and which died a horrible death in the rain flooded basement of my first appartment.
Most of them aren’t in print anymore -most publishers don’t even exist anymore! Some I got as a handmedown from my big sister. All gone.


Because of that I go through battered and some almost new books in all those small nested shops looking out for Petra, Dolly, Bille and the others.
Today I was lucky and found „Urmel aus dem Eis“ -edition 1969.
And a thin 80s patent leather belt got in my bag as well (works great as a waist belt for the XL-trend).
80cents in total.

The assortment changes at least every week if not more frequently, donations come in all the time, so it’s worth it to come by more often. -and you do something good, you give back.


Last time I was there I got a long denim coat (some unknown spanish brand) for 3bucks, a couple of yards of fine wool fabric -1,80€, a whole bag of brass dome buttons -50cents…
But there can also be antiquities, crystal glasses, vases, fur carpets and lots of other stuff.
Go and dig for treasures!
