It’s surprising what can you find in a charity shop

£20. They knew it had value but didn't know how much. A couple of weeks ago I bought a Tommie Young in there. The shop is the Oxfam shop in Marlborough. They've told me they don't have anything else.

My mate works in a couple of charity shops and gets some pretty decent British stuff on a regular basis. Trying to find something is a thankless task as he tells me you are up against dealers and collectors with time on their hands who do the rounds of the charity shops sometimes several times a week. It's a case of just being lucky, it's always worth asking have they anything in the back as stuff is brought in all the time. You never know next time it might be your turn to be lucky......we live in hope. I did get a couple of early Expansion cd's the other week, obviously not rare or anything but nice to find in a charity shop.

About five years ago I was looking through a pile of stuff in a charity shop in Devizes and found some Ray Merrell stuff ,usual c/w and mor stuff. The last one I looked at was Tears of Joy for a pound . Result.😀😁

Loads of charity finds over the years. Best most recent one was stone mint, Madeleine Bell, 'Picture Me Gone' on UK Philips in original bag. Not an amazing find but not too bad and nice enough for 50p. In amongst some Dusty Springfield records so I wonder what the story was there..!
