Another Tuesday off and I knew I wanted to do some Treasure Hunting, but inspired by this article I came across, I thought I’d do a couple of charity shops I’d not been to in ages. Plus, I’ve still not been able to get hold of any vegan washing up liquid, so I thought I’d pay a visit to Windmill on Aigburth Road and do the two charity shops there.
First I went to the Livsa Charity Shop on Smithdown Road, and got a mini haul:
|1970s Egg Cosies|
|Come Hither, Nurse by Jane Grant|
I also got all these books:
|Little Old Mrs Pepperpot by Alf Proysen|
|Another Night Before Christmas by Carol Ann Duffy and Illustrated by Rob Ryan|
|Cats by Christine Metcalf|
|Cat and Mouse Illustration|
|Ghostbusters II Ladybird Book|
|Lego Pirates: Captain Roger's Birthday Ladybird Book|
|Lego Pirates: Will and the Gold Chase Ladybird Book|
|He-Man: The Iron Master Ladybird Book|
|He-Man: A Trap for He-Man Ladybird Book|
|Pope John Paul II Ladybird Book|
|The Trotter Way to Millions|
Also, we've been watching our way through all of Only Fools and Horses online, so I couldn’t leave the book behind could I? So that’s for A.
Next I got the bus to Aigburth Road and went to Windmill first to get our washing up liquid - £1.66 for a litre re-fill of Bio-D – hoorah, now we can actually wash our dishes! Then I went to the Remar charity shop, which mostly sells furniture and I wasn’t going to go in, but as I passed the window I noticed they had an enormous amount of books in stock, so I popped back in to have a look. To be honest, there were too many to look through properly and not much space to do it in - I did go through the kids’ books, but there wasn’t anything there.
After that, I went to the Animal Rescue Charity Shop, which is one of those places that looks like it should have tons of treasure and I have had a few good things here before. This time I didn’t see much, they seemed to have got rid of quite a bit of their stock of kids’ books, which is what I usually did well with. I did get this vintage handbag though, but I’m not sure if it’s to keep or sell yet.
