All these extra shifts at the shop are doing me no good, I'm in the town way too much! On the way home yesterday I don't know why but I ducked into the British Heart Foundation shop. I only nip in occasionally because I find it to be quite expensive. The only other thing I've bought from there were some brand new wedge sandals. Anyway I went in, just to see what was what and as I was walking away spotted a book.
It's the book to accompany the Grayson Perry exhibition The Vanity of Small Differences, we saw this exhibition in Manchester last year and I really enjoyed it but didn't have the necessary cash to buy the book at the time. I paid £3.50 for it, which considering the lady in front of me paid £2 for just a regular paperback made it seem like even more of a bargain (not really, it just made me think the paperbacks were way too expensive!) I don't think the original owner had even opened it, it's in pristine condition.
I also picked up a very cute set of mini postcards from my shop, old images of Blackpool (as seen above). Speaking of Blackpool, Dan and I are packing our bags* and heading up there for the weekend, I know it's a long trek** but it should be worth it. We have a full weekend of rugby league ahead of us, not what everyone would like to spend a Bank Holiday weekend doing, but for us it's ideal!
