I have just finished watching this three-part series following Mary Portus´s project to re-rejuvenate a second-hand store in Kent for the charity Save the Children. She was given 5 months and it was really tough going. The majority of the staff, all volunteers were over 70 years of age, were used to doing things their own way. However with takings down some drastic steps were needed and Mary certainly did that and much more. I love second-hand, goodwill and vintage stores. I also love the fact that you are supporting charities as well as reducing your environmental impact win win !
This is definitely worth watching, you get to see the reality of these shops and what challenges they have to face. So instead of dumping things either at the second-hand store or into landfill – DONATE. !!
