A charity shop or should I say a real goldmine?!

Or even Ali Baba’s cave… Yes, that’s what working in a charity shop looks like! You can find everything you want, good or bad, but there’s everything : Clothes, Shoes, DVDs, CDs, Books, all sorts of accessorizes, bric-a-brac things, kids’ stuff …

Look FOX

The other day I found these really lovely dress and top. They’re nice, aren’t they? The shoes come from France, but I thought that they looked good with my new purchase!

As you may have guessed, I really like working there! I’m not paid, that’s true, I’m working as a volunteer, but who can dream of a better job when you have nothing but your Baccalauréat?! Honestly?!

I’m doing all kind of things like tidying, cleaning and tidying again but my favorite part of the job is when a donation comes and you open the bags which have just been brought and … SURPRISE (it’s often a good one, sometimes a REALLY good one & unfortunately it’s very bad some other times!!! :s) Anyway, the excitement’s always there!!!!

Moreover (and in my opinion, that’s what’s the most important thing when you do some volunteering in a charity shop such as the Sue Ryder one) all this work is eventually done for a good cause. Indeed the money we collect helps to provide incredible care for people with life-changing illness. Wether it’s bringing comfort to someone’s final days or enabling them to make the most of their lives…

Because it’s good not to be selfish sometimes…

Keep holding on to what and who you love & enjoy the ride of life 😉
