Charity begins at home – in the home ….

The Poff complained, on one occasion, that it wasn’t fair that he was married to the only woman he had ever met that hated shopping.

Such a beautiful wooden bear – I couldn’t leave him in the shop …

That isn’t entirely true as I am often tempted into buying a book, although only via the internet and not on the high street, plus I loved buying new pieces of art or craft work at shows before my spending money dried up.  And thirdly, if by a rare chance I am in the town centre, I will always look in the window of a charity shop.

So odd looking but really quite cute – I don’t know what came over me ….!

As well as the second-hand donations being sold in these shops, there are also a few handmade items on the shelves, such as greetings cards, small food items (like fairtrade chocolate and coffee) and gift donation cards.  Amongst the handmade items there are often gorgeous soft and carved wooden toys.

She was one of four soft toys in a charity shop that I fell in love with and re-homed.

I would recommend popping into a local charity shop and having a good rummage around – it is surprising what pearls can be found on the shelves there.

Cheers until next time.  KnitNell
