Taylor Swift is known for being very sensible with her finances, but according to a British tabloid, she’s quite the shopaholic. The paper The Sun claims that during Taylor’s recent trip to London, she dropped 50 thousand pounds — that’s around 80 grand — on antiques.
The paper reports that Taylor was seen shopping on London’s Portobello Road — which is antiques central — with her boyfriend, Conor Kennedy. A source told the paper that Taylor “wandered into” a shop called Alice’s and spent 30 thousand pounds in five minutes, and then “went up the road and spent another 20,000 pounds.”
So for that kind of money, what in heck did Taylor buy? “She was only in there for about five minutes. About half of what she bought was for her, the other for Conor,” tattled the source. “She bought a drawing of a shark, some old medicine bottles and a pinball machine for him.”
