Yesterday I received a message from a friend to tell me that the Hospice had received a donation of hundreds of pairs of shoes plus handbags and scarves from a local shop that has closed down, and that many of them would be in her local charity shop at £1 each.
P and I decided to have a little drive out this morning to see if there was anything useful available and we arrived soon after the shop opened. Sadly, there was a very small selection available - perhaps most of the goodies had already been sold or the stock shared out amongst the Hospice shops in other towns.
I did find a pair of mustard yellow moccasin shoes for £1 (brand new, unworn) plus a thick, cosy, woolly M&S jumper and a blouse that was new and still had its tags attached.
We eventually came home with a pair of shoes, a jumper, a blouse and a large white pot for plants for the grand total of £11.
I can't resist a bargain, or two.
