Charity Shops (A great place to find Salt and Pepper shakers)

25 May

ImageToday I was asked where to get unusual salt and pepper shakers, this made me think… most of ours are souvenirs from places we have been but alot come from second hand charity shops. Charity shops are great places to find unique salt and pepper shakers and unusual items, in fact you could find anything there. Books are probably the most popular item! The St. Vincent De Paul charity shops in Ireland are almost nationwide, they are managed by professionals, volunteer and community employment trainees. 

My local SVP charity shops are in Drogheda, they have 4 shops in the town one which is a book shop, a furniture shop and 2 clothes shops. One was opened in December 2011 in the Laurence Shopping Center, the SVP shop has been positioned as a high end boutique and sells clothes and shoes. The shop is similar to all of the other stores in the center however prices are a fraction of the other’s prices and the clothes are on trend and popular clothes labels. I really admire the decision to open a SVP in the Laurence St. shopping center, personally I think it has reached a new audience that would not generally shop in second hand shops and it has also made itself relevant to our current economic times by positioning itself as a low cost retailer.
