The search is over. I have found a reasonably priced winter coat.  On a whim I thought the charity shop in Carrigaline might be a good place to look for a winter coat. I have exhausted every shop in the city so it was time to spread my wings.

In my mind Carrigaline is a posh suburb and therefore their charity shops should be full of good quality coats and their native pottery, Carrigaline pottery. Well, I was right on one count they did have some good quality clothing on offer in the St Vincent’s de Paul charity shop.

And I picked up this coat for a bargain €7 !!!!

It also goes pretty well with the leather bag I bought at the car boot sale in Rathcormac yesterday.

IMG_6983It’s warm, lined and makes me feel like I work for Aer Lingus in the 1960’s and for €7 how could I go wrong!

A big thanks to Steve, my pro photographer, for giving up some of his lunch time to take pictures of me in the garden.
