My first find is something I've been wanting for ages:
A convex mirror.
I love these mirrors and you'd think they'd be the kind of thing to turn up frequently in charity shops but this is first one I've seen. I'd have preferred a plainer surround (or no surround) but it's in great condition so I couldn't turn it down for £3.75. And yeah, we don't have much spare wall space to hang it but it does sit nicely over the radiator, which is a bad place to hang pictures or any precious prints, due to the effects of the heat.
(Enjoy this unedited picture, complete with cat's bum and lunch-stained top. I could pretend the food was due to the baby, but in truth it's all me)
I saw these jeans yesterday but wasn't sure if they were my size (it's confusing how they have the US sizes on and I can never remember how they translate) and I didn't have any change. Happily they were still there when I returned to the charity shop this afternoon and not only are they perfect, identical in style to the old jeans and in great (I suspect new) condition - they were £2.
Nothing like some successful charity shopping to brighten your day. Have you made any good finds recently?
