This Season Must Have!

The weather seems to be changing…more rain showers…unpredictable…you never know whether to take a waterproof jacket or not…here at the gift shop we have the answer!

Stylish…fun…practical! What more do you need…fits comfortably in your bag until you need it…what a fantastic idea.

We have a number of colours and designs…but this one is my favourite!


I Am Giddy, Expectation Whirls Me Round. The Imaginary Relish Is So Sweet That it Enchants My Sense – William Shakespeare.

We’ve gone slightly giddy in the Gift Shop…and given you bargains galore!!!

As you know we visited Harrogate recently, looking for new stock for the Gift Shop…we found some awesome products that we can’t wait to share with you…but first we have to make some room!

That can only mean it’s SALE TIME of course!

If you’re in Ulverston today why not pop up to the hospice…visit our wonderful Gift Shop and then treat yourself to lunch at The Orangery Cafe.


Working in a charity shop you really need to have an imagination…a sense of fun…you never know what your next donation is going to be…every bag is different…from papier-mâché ducks to vintage cameras…you just never know what you’re going to find!

That’s the beauty of charity shops…working in them…volunteering in them…shopping in them!

If you haven’t experienced a charity shop yet maybe now is the time.

A Wandering We Will Go

It’s been another glorious day for travelling round the shops.

Ulverston…Millom…Grange…all bustling with happy shoppers.

If you haven’t added St Mary’s Hospice shops to your list of ‘must see places’ now is the time to do it.

The sun is shining…the shops are full of bright summer colours…wonderful bargains just waiting to be bought…what better way to spend an August day?

It’s Time To Shop!

I’ve just arrived at Ulverston shop…Wow their window is looking good…full of great quality men’s shoes and clothing…yes that’s right…MEN’S!

Come on Men Of Ulverston…get yourself down to St Mary’s Hospice shop this morning…we can help transform you into the dapper chap you’ve always wanted to be!

Brand new with tags…Next trousers…River island shirt…KG dress shoes…all of this for under £20…what’s not to like?

If You Come Here You Will Find Hidden Treasure – Paulo Coelho

It’s been a busy week…I’ve visited all the shops…what treasure I’ve found!

The warehouse on Wednesday…a giant Russian telescope…it certainly got my interest! Just seeing the large box was enough to get me thinking…wondering what was inside…opening the lid and seeing the telescope…it was definitely a WOW moment!

They wouldn’t let me take the telescope for eBay…they’re still researching it, but they did give me some interesting bits and pieces, including 2 Beatles records…we’ll soon have them listed in our eBay shop!

I called in at Dalton next and picked up a doctor’s stethoscope and some new shoes from Carol…more stock for eBay!

Millom on Thursday and June had a pile of treasures waiting for me…including an old accordion…its a little bit rusted but has the original case…definitely eBay material! It rattled around my car boot and made a strange kind of music all the way back to Barrow…not the most tuneful if I’m honest…but I’m sure in the right hands it will sound better!
