I’ve been to Millom today…visiting June and her team…what a great morning I love the Shop Chatter going on there!
June was telling me about a visitor to her shop…a thirteen year old girl,with her Mum, who…’didn’t shop in charity shops because they were smelly!’
Didn’t take June and her team long to change her mind…armed with Next jeans and River Island tops June soon had her convinced that her charity shop was a cool place to shop!
When June showed her the outfits she could buy for her pocket money that was it…a converted charity shop shopper…I think they’ll be seeing her every time she visits Millom!
Love Your Hospice…Love Millom…Love Charity Shopping!
The retail team is scattered around South Cumbria…we only meet up as a team twice a year…yesterday was our second (and therefore last) meeting of 2017…and it was great!
We obviously have a lot of retail business to talk about but we still found time to hear from a Trustee and experience a little of what you could possibly find in a Living Well session…both were extremely interesting and showed you the Hospice from a different perspective…brilliant!
Have you ever been to a meeting and just watched the clock…tick tick tick tick…me too…but NEVER at one of our retail meetings…there is way too much energy…ideas and all round positivity in the room to be even slightly tempted to check the time!
If you ever get an invite to one of our meetings and wonder whether you should come…the answer is YES!
I forgot to mention…we also have cake!
We currently have a table and four chairs for sale in the warehouse…the most unusual I have seen!
According to HuffPost…Caitlin Kittredge described Steampunk as…Victorian Industrial…and I wonder if this table and chairs would fit the bill!
Glass…heavy wood and industrial metal…designer piece or homemade…we really don’t know!
If you want a dining set that is a conversation starter this could be the one but you will need muscles to lift the chairs!
I have taken pictures (below) but they don’t do it justice…come down to the Warehouse and see it in all it’s glory…you won’t be disappointed.
