A KEEN secondhand shopper has revealed her best haul yet, revealing she bagged more than £400 worth of stuff for just £30. 

Caroline managed to find two pairs of on-trend cowboy boots, as well as a Ted Baker coat and a brand-new board game in three local charity shops. 

Known online as @caroline.shops, the pro-thrifter regularly shares her charity shop hauls with her 21,800 followers. 

In a new TikTok video, she said: “I am addicted to charity shop shopping, and to bagging an absolutely frigging bargain. 

“I’ve got, today, over £400 worth of stuff for just over £30. Let me show you. 

“Honestly I’ve outdone myself. I went to a selection of charity shops and just brace yourselves.

I found one of the best charity shops in the UK, I got eight steals for £10

“First up I went to the Break charity shop where they had a sale. What’s better than a charity shop? A charity shop with a sale. 

“From there I got two pairs of boots.

"There were these, brand new. I’m going to say brand new, I think they’ve just been tried on, but I don’t think they’ve actually been worn. Zara cowboy boots. 

“They were £6, but in the sale, they reduced them to £3. Boots like this are currently on sale on their website for about £70.

“Then I nearly had a hernia when I saw these. These are Steve Madden boots. They are practically brand new. They’ve got steel-toe caps here, and they’ve got the cowboy-esque pattern there, white and black. 

“These were on the website for £160, and then they were reduced to £60. I got these in Break for £10."

Next, Caroline revealed her bargain board game, where she saved up to £50.

She added: “Then in Break, I saw this on a top shelf. For all my fellow board game-loving fans, it is a brand new, sealed copy of Talisman: Disney Kingdom Hearts for £10. 

“This sells online, at the moment, for around £50 to £60. 

“Then I popped into the PACT charity shop where I saw this beautiful, brand new Laura Ashley necklace. 

“The price tag is still on, of £26. I got this for £3.50. 

“And finally, I went to the Each charity shop where I saw this. It is a Ted Baker pale pink coat. 

“You might remember this when I did one of my videos recently because I saw it and decided not to get it because it was a bit too much. It was £25. 

“But they’ve reduced it to £12 so I grabbed it. This was on the John Lewis website for £190.”

Fans loved her bargain haul, with the video gaining more than 830 likes and 16,800 views. 

In the comments, other TikTok users shared their reactions, with one writing: “I am obsessed with those Steve Madden boots!”

“That’s a brilliant haul, well done,” another said.
