Hello Dear Reader,
We went for a partially successful trip to the charity shops of Wadebridge. I often think, if you go somewhere ‘posh’ the charity shops will have generous donations. Oh how wrong I am. We visited Truro a while ago and the charity shops were too expensive, today, Wadebridge was the same. The hospice shop wanted £15 for jackets! We had a mooch around the other charity shops which were equally expensive. We ended up in the Air Ambulance shop, where everything was expensive, except the Meakin utility ware dish that I found for £1.
We did have an enjoyable hour or so, we bought a book each (£1 each from another charity shop) and I got to add a lovely dish to my utility ware collection. Open message to charity shops. We the people without enough money to go to Marksies, but more ethics than to buy sweatshop shit – would buy lots in charity shops but we can’t afford what you’re selling. I would love to know who can afford to buy what you sell. Here’s an open message to anyone in Cornwall!!!! In Liskeard, the charity shops are cheap, and the cheapest are the Woodside Charity shop and the Salvation Army shop, where everything is cheap – they need your business and you need their prices so get to them and spend your pennies!!!
