Summer Staples – Charity Shop Spotlight
15th August 2018
Inside our Hospice shops, expect to find a wide collection of donated items such as; beautiful silk scarfs, small leather goods, a selection of vintage crockery, collectables and antiques along with British and Italian mens & womenswear, not forgetting a selection of pre-loved good-quality shoes.
With this in mind, as a fashion lover, designer bargain hunter and long-time customer of St John’s Hospice and now marketeer at St John’s, I had great pleasure putting this Summer spotlight together featuring our favourite finds.
