Support Your Local Charity Shops

Posted on 15th September 2015 in #charitytuesday/ charity/ Charity Greetings

The Street StoreCharity Shop Chic seems to the new big thing and your high street almost certainly contains a hidden gem of a charity store. I live in quite a small town, ‘market village’ I believe it likes to call itself, yet it boasts at least 5 charity shops.

I’ve yet to become a skilled charity shopper but it’s something that I would like to improve upon as I often read with jealousy about other more prudent shoppers who seem to effortlessly find beautiful and inexpensive clothing, jewellery and antiques all the time.

A project I’d like to see spread to the UK is pop-up charity shop The Street Store, click here for more details of this excellent scheme.

One thing I do regularly buy from charity shops is greetings cards, my nearest shop does a beautiful and quirky range of cards that I’ve not seen anywhere else and they are only 79p per card! Great quality too, I make a point of stocking up whenever I’m passing. It’s a step in the right direction I guess!

What do you like to buy from charity shops – share your best find with me?
