    @Miró I was expecting the same but there hasn't been anything that has caught my eye. Yet.

    A lot of the chazzers near me have been closed since before Christmas, and this weekend will be their first Saturday for donations....

    Ooooops, guess who forget to bookmark the new thread?!!!  Doh....thought you were all having a spend free January!

    Anyhoo, my first spend of 2022, in the Hospital Trust Support chazza I got a pair of M & S dark brown pure wool trousers - loose fit with pleats into the waistband and turn ups.  Priced at £4 and lovely quality fabric but someone had done a really bad job of shortening them so I spent some time this afternoon re-doing the hems....  Not finding much in the charity shops lately....just old tired stock.  Thought peeps might have been having a clear out over Chrimbo but if so nothing much has filtered thro yet....not even an unwanted B & H gifty box of smellies!
    I noticed a distinct lack of gift boxes of lotions, potion, and soaps in the shops this past Christmas.   Maybe this accounts for the lack in charity shops?
