A Saturday lunch time shift for me and Wilson today.

We managed to hang 2 rails and jam pack them with mostly women's tops and a few skirts. I picked up one of the bags based on spotting some amazing colours and, sure enough, it did not disappoint with the jacket that inspired the title of the report!

Wilson was also over the moon to see that her recycling crusade is working and there is now a place to recycle the paper tags that come in on the clothes from other stores. Nice work W!

We had a productive 2 hours, sorting and singing along to greatest hits radio as well as accepting donations from customers and helping manage the queue.

I managed to take some donations and NOT buy anything for me, but did spot a good bargain for another GG member :). Win win.

Next visit to the shop is 2pm Saturday 27th November, lead by Queen of the Bargains, Sam.
