I prefer buying things second hand. I like that my things have stories. We have a whole row of charity hand shops just around the corner from us, and I find most things I need there. There's a Red Cross book shop full of treasures, and we never leave the shop empty handed... I also like Ebay, and recently I got this lovely tweed coat from there. I feel very British today, with my tea dress, tweed coat and brogues. I feel like a mix between a male university professor and a housewife, neither of which I am..
