    Exactly what I think! Vest for £3, sunglasses for £2.50, skirts for £4, and shoes under £9. BARGAINS!

    I'll warn you it takes a bit of rifling, and you can spend hours in a primark store, especially since the one I go to, in Leeds is on three floors, but its great. I was in there the day before yesterday and bought

    - 1 x swimming short for boyf - £4
    - 4 x tshirts for boyf - £8
    - 1 x double duvet cover - £9
    - 2 x bikinis - £7
    - 10 x knickers - £6.50
    - 1 x bolero - £4
    - 1 x sunglasses - £2.50
    - 1 x linen trousers - £7
    - 1 x flipflops - £1.50

    All for £50! Plus they have these giant fishing net style bags, that you cart around stuffing full of lovely things! You'll love it!

    I like Zara, they have cute stuff.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Zara is always a bit of a gamble. Some stuff is so so so expensive and then mixed in there'll be vests and tops for a few pounds! You have to hit it on a lucky day!

    My friend goes to the Manchester Primark branch and she said that has 3 floors too. She said never go there with a hangover as you'll faint it's so busy, and that people literally wrestle each other for the clothes!

    I literally recoiled last year when I tried to "bargain" shop at Loehmann's. They advertise themselves as "upscale" but I just saw cheap, picked over clothing. Some of it made me shudder. This was in Chevy Chase.

    Thrift store shoppng is the best. Better quality and uniqueness all in one package.
