    A well run charity shop where the staff takes care and make an effort to merchandise/display their stock in the best possible ways. Every week there is a theme colour in the shop window - red dresses, accessories etc.

    Interesting assortment of goods inside the store thanks to wealthy locals' donations. This shop also sells new balls of knitting wool, second hand needles and knitting patterns.

    What do an astronaut and this Trinity Hospice have in common?  Read this review to find out.

    I went here twice.  The second time was immediately after the first because I'd dropped my mitten and had to go back and fetch it.  This charity shop has got a unique characteristic that may be of interest to some people, but it hammered no nails for me.  About 1/4 of this shop is chock full of yarn.  Perhaps people buy it for knitting, but I'm inclined to think the the workers at this shop like to twine themselves into different colored balls and run around the streets saying "boo!"  If you should ever need yarn for that purpose, you could definitely find some there.  

    Besides yarn, there are the usual charity shop staples - clothes, shoes, house goods and cheap (in both senses of the word) jewelery.   Where as I value charity shops  for the awesome finds they can turn up once in a while, this one was no treasure chest.  Captain Jack Sparrow must have rummaged through first.  A.k.a, nothing super exciting.  Maybe something good pops up here once in a while - I'm sure it does - but it was not an on day when I went there.  

    It was clean and bright, nice wooden floor, and voila.  

    So you want to know about the astronaut?  Eh  ? Eh?  Well both the shop and Saturn have rings some times.  Don't get it?  Me either.
