As you all know, I'm a great fan of charity shops and even more so when they offer 'loyalty' schemes to their customers. My local Sue Ryder charity shop offers £5 off when you have collected 10 stamps on your loyalty card and The Salvation Army have a scheme called 'Re-Tag' and 'Re-Bag'.
Basically any donations made that are in their re-usable bag or with a tag attached means a £2 spend in their shop for you!!
I was given my tag a couple of weeks ago when I was in there handing in a donation and over the weekend did another clearout of things not worn anymore and attached my tag. I took it in earlier today and had a look around and was pleased to find a Celia Birtwell for Topshop smock (the one in the bottom left hand corner) for £2.99, so with my £2 off I only had to pay 99p!!
I do love Celia Birtwell pieces, this is my cheapest one to date and is from her 2nd collection in Autumn 2006 with Topshop.
So it goes to show that charity shopping can be rewarding, get donating and be a loyal customer for your local charity!!
