I like a rummage in a good charity shop.

The small local charity ones are the best I find

I used to love going into Charity Shops, but I found some of them to be not so charitable these days with the prices they charge.

There's Sue Ryder and the Hospice shop in Pem, but it's been a while since I was in either of them. Might give them another go when I have time.

I think the Bernardo's charity shop at the Co-op store on Haigh Road in Aspull is still open.

I agree with mollie m. Charity shops are over priced and you can get new stuff cheaper in primark. always worth a mooch for good stuff though. I just found 2 lovely Joule T shirts that I wouldn't pay normal prices for. M& S also send some of their old stock to charity shops,
