  • Mark Lewis

    A very topical book for these times. It deals with themes such as vegetarianism, the environment, recycling, animals in captivity and all the good work that charity shops do. The book is also very funny and entertaining.

  • Mrs Ivy Joyce Rose

    I was recently given a Copy of this fascinating book and enjoyed reading it immensely. I felt transported into the World of Birmingham and surrounding areas, and the Life of a Charity Shop. Many of us peruse in Charity Shops and appreciate how many different things they sell for Very reasonable prices, and this book explains very well and amusingly what really is involved from day to day.
