Charity Shop Boulevard – Perth, Scotland

This weekend ES and I ventured back to Perth to stay in our holiday home, which is in actual fact his ex-student flat that is not longer in possession of a television. Still it is a lovely flat and it was nice to get away just to two of us.

We had two plans for our weekend. Last week I had spotted that Perth has a large number of charity shops, and ES wanted to visit the drag strip in Crail on the Sunday to race his car. Unfortunately I forgot my camera for my charity shop forays so I dragged ES with me for the use of his exceptional camera phone – it’s actually better than my camera!

We discovered Charity Shop Boulevard in Perth with approximately 7 charity shops lining the street – I’ll delve into the those later!

Now most men, and even some women, dread joining their other half along for a days shopping – let alone a days charity shop shopping for ones bloggage! Everything requires a little give and take. As I mentioned before there is no TV in the flat, so I decided that it would be nice to find a boardgame to entertain us in the evening, and this was ES’s challenge. Naturally being a man the selection presented to me was biased to war and cars. First he found a type of Top Gear Trivial pursuit that even he said he would have no idea as to the answers (unless Vauxhall related!),

Then he found Risk, which turned out to be an enlightened choice. In about our 5th charity shop he came along with “Gazza, the game” to which I asked if it was a drinking game, but I also took the hint that he was getting fidgety and picked up the pace.

Risk, £2.99 – we played this – and I lost spectacularly!

Hoping to provide you with a post full of fashion finds later as I picked up some inspiration in the form of October’s Harpers Bazaar. I’ll leave you with a couple of photo’s of Crail.
