Buying gifts from Charity Shops

Look what I picked up this week. It costs just 50p. It’s a little kids construction kit. It is brand new and sealed and would probably cost £6.99 when first bought.  It is a perfect gift for a 5-7 year old and it will be popped in my present drawer.

Keep your eyes peeled for brand new toys and games in charity shops they are fabulous to stockpile for Christmas or parties.

If you feel at all funny charity shop gift buying then ask your self this…the toy is brand new, it’s something a child will love…what on earth difference does it make to them where you bought it from and how much it cost. Now think about your purse.

It’s a win win isn’t it!

    Hi Becky, I couldn’t agree more, far too much stuff in the house. We have started recycling books to (and from) the charity shop, but hardly making an in-road. Our old school always used to have a lightly-used/pre-loved teddy tombola, which was a great fun raiser (and very popular), although downside was we always came back with as much as we took! Sarah

    What a lovely find!

    This time of year is great for finding gifts as people clear out unwanted Christmas presents.

    We regularly go on a charity shop trawl! We have found amazing things and often buy presents, we save money, people get nice presents and the charity can help more people – everyone’s a winner!
