I love things which have a retro feel though I don’t like the prices it often comes with. This afternoon we went wandering around the shops locally as we don’t get a chance to do that often any more.
Our favourite shop Calladoodles is currently being refurbished so we had to skip there (but it’ll be open again in two weeks) but happily our Cancer Research shop was open.
Cancer is something which has affected a lot of people. My dad died due to Bowel Cancer, my mum has had two different kinds, and various family members have been affected. A lot of friends are going through it at the moment. This is why I’ll always shop at Cancer Research shops – the money is put into Cancer Research in the hope one day a cure will be found. They have a lovely range of things in-store too. I’ve done Race for Life several times (I didn’t do it last year) and am thinking about doing the Dryathlon, though I’d find it quite easy not to drink for the whole of January.
Here’s the Cancer Research retro range, and the things which I’m going to go back and buy some of…
I do not need another cosmetic purse, however, at just £2.99 I need this.
This purse has plenty of card compartments and a separate zip area for coins, etc. Only £7.99 too!
What better than a matching toiletries bag?
If I really wanted to go for the overkill effect I’d also wear these wellies. At £18.99 they’re not cheap, and only go up to size 7, so may not fit me… but still, lovely!
These are all available now at Cancer Research stores and online. Go and check them out!
