Grimsby Fishy Grimsby

A 2 day tour of Grimsby this week , a place with an awful lot of charity shops. so lets shamelessly plug the best of them .
The Rock Foundation has a shop at the top of Freeman Street plus a huge site round the corner on Wellington Street this is complete with a Victorian Tea Room ,an old fashioned sweet shop plus a 3 room charity shop thats very reasonable and displays of garden furniture they make from recycled  timber , theres craft workshops on site and its all in aid of adults with learning difficulties . Its open Mon - Fri. Age UK yielded a bit more from their free bins , load more magazine files and other office stuff  and its just across the road . heres just a little of todays haul .

Edwardian transfer printed hat pin holder from Louth , going into the shop shortly . A pair of gorgeous cut up books The Silver Jubilee of George V 1911-35 great condition packed with sepia photographs but a single page missing . The Wonder Book of Animals early 20c tatty but amazing photographs and illustrations including the Canadian soldiers with their Pet Bears from WWI. Original River Cottage Cookbook for when i have a cookbook week in Katies Recycle. a pile of 10p unused pretty photo frames , because its school photo season !!
