"New To Me" Hiking Jacket.

 

I never showed you my " new to me" hiking jacket did I?

I have a similar one with a famous hiking brand name.  It cost about 65 Euros in the sale.

It's  been in my possession about six years.  But unfortunately one of the zip pockets doesn't function properly and it's  starting to look a bit shabby.

Like a lot of men.  I will not be throwing it away.  Instead it will be a light gardening jacket and a reserve walking jacket when my "new" one is wet after getting Saturday  just for a change.

I bought my "new" jacket from a charity shop for five Euros!  I know but you have to be extravagant sometimes.

I like supporting charity shops and they help me clothing me very cheaply.

Do you buy clothes from charity shops for hiking and your holidays?

  1. I don't buy clothes from charity shops, but I do get loads of other things, mainly toys for the grandchildren and pretty kitchen pots to use for my plants. We do take loads to be sold, all our clothes we put in the Salvation Army bins.

  2. I certainly do. A lot of my "new" clothes since retirement have come from the local charity shop. Most have been unworn, still with the labels attached.

  3. Some carefully applied WD40 may get your old pocket zip working again.

    2. You can use it as a massage oil. Ask Jean to do the honours tonight.

  4. I sure do. I call it 'recycling'. If I don't, people call me a tightwad.

  5. Recycling is a brilliant description for buying from charity shops Anonymous.
