The rise of charity shops

Now, this is good news. Charity shops are apparently bucking the trend and booming in these tough economic times, while other shops are closing.

It’s not hard to see why. But it’s a lovely story. As someone who has taken 9 dustbin liners of clothes to the local Cancer Research and Air Ambulance outlets this year, I’m pleased my threads are going to a better place. Don’t like to talk about it, mind.
