I have just done my first day (half day to be truthful) of volunteer work at the local Beechwood charity shop.
My task today was to sort out the donation bags. This involved gloves, bins and common sense.
Lots of donated stuff is rubbish but it does at least go to the rag man rather than joining our serious landfill overload.
Shoes that are in a poor state also go to the rag man, I think a lot of them go to third world countries. The clothes that are considered saleable have to be in perfect condition and preferably are a descent brand ie, M&S. The whole process is rather impressive and I thoroughly enjoyed myself.....tagging and pricing being my fave bit.
Anyhows, I know what you are all thinking. You are all thinking that I became distracted from my important sorting role and ended up buying treasure.....how very dare you!!
I may have come home with a couple of things.....
This is a laundry bag of the hanging variety. I love the graphics to be honest, who can resist an owl and a squirrel?
And then there was this....
Oh my, is it not the nicest retro deck chair ever?
It is in such good condition and the pattern is perfect. Because I already have plenty of deck chairs I may just sell this one but at the moment I need more time to think about such a serious matter ;)
I am working at the shop again on Wednesday and for a full day might I add. I am hoping to make it a permanent thing.
Tonight I will be having an early night which will mostly involve a cuppa tea and a book.
Thanks for reading. X
