Kindness…Sprinkle That Stuff Everywhere!

Saturday afternoon and I’m minding my own business strolling round a local low budget/bargain shop…full of cold and feeling a little sorry for myself…scouring the shelves for cold remedies!

‘Hiya’ I hear…I turn and find one of our regular Barrow shop customers…we exchanged pleasantries and then I turned to leave…I had gone about 5 steps when I heard them quietly say…’Thank you…thank you for being kind’

I turned and went back to them…turned out they hadn’t been well for a long time…were struggling with a painful chronic illness and when they weren’t feeling particularly good they would head to Barrow shop…where they were guaranteed a healthy dose of kindness…no judgement…no questions…nothing needed in return…just people happy to help…to chat…to care.

‘You will tell them won’t you? It means a lot…their kindness…it makes a difference.’

I assured them I would. I left that shop with a lump in my throat feeling very humble and a little bit proud

…proud of the staff and volunteers of Barrow shop who have brought kindness into this person’s life

…proud of all our retail staff and volunteers, knowing they sprinkle kindness like confetti on a daily basis…go into any of our shops if you don’t believe me…not only will you find fantastic bargains but you’ll find a friendly face…a happy atmosphere and KINDNESS in abundance…if you don’t please let me know

…proud to be part of St Mary’s Hospice…a great organisation where we know no other way than to be kind.

Love Barrow…Love Volunteers…Love Your Hospice.

Sofa…So Good!

Choosing a new sofa can be really difficult…size…colour…style…price…all sorts of things to consider!

Here at the warehouse we have a super selection of sofas and settees that are…soft…sumptuous…sassy…sensible…stylish…snazzy…shapely…and so much more!

For superduper sofa prices there’s only one place to go…St Mary’s Hospice Furniture Warehouse…where buying a settee is surprisingly simple!

Every Artist Was First An Amateur – Ralph Waldo EmersonĀ 

I don’t know about you but I’m passionate about art…all of it! 

The thing I love about charity shops…especially ours…is that they are little artsy gold mines…dig deep enough and you never know what you might find!

Now I’m not saying you are going to find an original masterpiece or a Bergman cold painted bronze…but we do have some lovely prints…pictures and old photographs available in our Ulverston shop…so if you want to liven up your walls why not take a look!
