charity shops

In our small town, we have three charity shops.  Vincents (St.Vincent de Paul) and two Good As New shops.  Each shop is dedicated to a cause and within walking minutes of each other,  Can't resist the going rate for books, 5 books for €1.  We usually pop in once or twice during the week to check and see what's new.  We're searching for a small lamp and a chair.  You never know! 
 



We did pop in to Vincents this past Friday and spent a grand sum of €3.  There was no chair or lamp, but Shari found a pair of polka dotted pants on the euro rack; we picked up 5 books; found a strainer,  a perpetual calendar and a lighthouse candle holder we saw in the window..

  7. We have a few here in Bergen, and every week I try to visit all of them at least once. I am looking for the Vinyl records and across the last two years I found more than 350. Do you have some vinyls in your shops? Your shop looks nice... Greetings from Bergen

  9. I enjoy thrift stores. I dropped off some goods at Goodwill today and shopped for a few minutes. I always check out the dishes, figurines, and art work.
