Friendly Friday – Junk… not to me!

A still life image of three bottles and petals

One of the places I love trawling around is charity shops. You can find many useful items at such low cost. I think these bottles were under £2-3, if that. Unfortunately, due to the lockdown here, charity shops are still closed, but I can’t wait for them to open as I am running out of props.

Another thing charity shops have are scarves, believe it or I’ve picked up some plain pastel looking scarves that are large enough to use as a cloth to stand my subjects on.

Have a great weekend and if you are lucky to have these shops open where you are at the moment, pop in and have a good look… other people’s junk could be your new prop and a great way to recycle what someone else doesn’t want!

  2. Lovely photo to make a wonderful point.

    In Canada we call them ‘thrift’ shops and up until recently, I would always pass them by. One day though, I was on an extended touring holiday and needed some basics for eating on the go. The thrift shop was a treasure trove of utensils for pennies. I still have a $1 find from that trip which I use daily 🙂
