I’m on a bit of a rant. It’s been a while since I’ve had one (I feel like I’m in confession!) Anyway my rant today is about Charity Shops. I love them, in fact most of my clothes come from them.
What I don’t like about them is how ungrateful they can be when you donate items to them. We’ve been having a bit of a clear out recently and I’ve had a run in with three charity shops.
The first one refused books when I’d checked a few days before if they would take them. The other two weren’t a bit happy when I left in other items to them. Everything I was leaving in was of very good quality, some were new. Not one of the shops said thank you.
To be honest I’m now so put off donating I probably wouldn’t bother anymore, apart from to Ursula who sells items for Rescue Dogs Sligo. Is it just a Sligo thing though? What are the charity shops like elsewhere? Are there any charity shops in Sligo that are looking for items and wouldn’t look at me like I had two heads if I leave things in?
Rant over – for today 🙂
