CHARITY shops can be a real luck of the draw when it comes to finding bargains.
And now one woman has shared what might be the best charity shop bargain we’ve ever seen – an Alexander McQueen scarf worth £165.

The scarf was a must-have item around 2012, when it was spotted around the necks of Kate Moss, Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan.
But the A-list crowd would have paid 100 times more than the thrifty shopper, who picked up her scarf for a mere £1.45.
She shared photos of the enviable find on the Facebook group Charity Shop Not So S**t Finds.
Captioning the snaps, she wrote: “Probably one of my fave charity shop finds.

“It was in with the Halloween stuff in a charity shop in Birmingham.
“I was going to buy it anyway but got even more excited when I saw the name!”
The black and white Skull scarf is made from fine black silk and features a slim design and a skull print.
The design was a big hit when it was first released in spring 2003 and is still popular today.

One person wrote: “Utter class.”
Another added: “That’s awesome.”
A third said: “No way! Jammy get. I go in that shop as well.”
