You're on the money there. I've never come across many charity shops in France and wonder why. Sure there are the Emmaüs depots, but they're not really charity shops. Whenever we go to England I always swing by the charity shops and stock up with paperbacks usually at a sov a pop. On occasions I've returned these to the same shop which may be the ultimate in recycling. Last trip, in addition to paperbacks I bought some CDs at 99 pence each and few years ago a blinding, almost new sheepskin coat for £12.99. Do wish I could do the same over here.Aardvark wrote: ↑Thu Apr 25, 2019 11:02 amI successfully returned a couple of CDs. One was very badly distorted and unplayable, the other turned out to be an empty case. Instead of being glared at and suspected of trying to pull a fast one, I received an apology with smiles and the option to choose replacements. I supposed it made a difference that it was an English run charity shop.
