I am a great fan of flea or free but sometimes buying something of quality (and price) is the right thing to do. In this case I mean my rather expensive Mulberry handbag which cost a pretty penny but has been loved and used every day for nearly two years.
When back in the UK recently I was looking forward to going to the Mulberry shop and possibly buying another. Unfortunately (or not) the shop was closed.
It´s amazing to find bargains in the charity shops and chains. However more often than not these bargain buys end up in the charity shop bag again.
