With the easing of lockdown charity shops are now open for business.. I think in the US these might be called thrift stores. People give clothes they no longer want or need to the charity shop which then sells them at bargain prices. It’s been a lovely spring day here today; bright blue sky, no clouds, only a gentle breeze so just right for a stroll around the local shops including Age UK a charity shop with lots of clothes for sale both ‘drab’ and ‘drag’. The difficulty at the moment is that customers can’t try anything on but this charity shop does a great job of displaying the clothes on ‘sized’ hangers and if when you get the items home they don’t fit you can return them and get your money back. So having chosen a white long sleeve blouse with delicate embroidery and a denim jacket which I thought were my size at the bargain price of £16.00 total I hurried home for the acid test of the ‘try on’. The blouse fitted well, just tight enough to convince on lookers of a matronly bosom beneath. The denim jack was a perfect fit. I was so pleased as HR has never had or worn a denim jacket before. So it’s three cheers for charity shops as far as I’m concerned. Do any other sisters have tales of charity shop success (or disaster)?
