Charity Shops Are Goldmines #1

I had some stuff to donate so, after the drop-off, I perused the shelves. Now, as many will know, I have an uncanny knack of being in the right place at the right time as far as CS are concerned. Yesterday was no exception. Cars and palm trees galore!

Here are some pictures of the haul

Not bad for 50p the lot, eh?
The figure's for scale and is not for sale.

I shall paint over the address to make the truck more generic.
But that's not the best bit.

OPENING rear doors!
I envisage possibilities here.

The best truck in the world?
No, it's got a side-lamp missing but it'll do a trip.

Quite pleased with this little lot and good value at £3.50!


  1. Great buys ! , there's a cake shop I keep an eye on that does cake decorations which can be useful , Tony

    1. Too right, Tony, those cake columns are always useful. I must visit my local decorating shop soon.....

  2. Well done sir! Which reminds me - I had a bit a of a result in a charity shop a couple of weeks ago - I must post photos thereof.

  3. Very nice indeed! Charity shops and boot sales have given my collection an awful lot of kit over the years - and at a cost that does not make SWMBO wince....

    All the best,


    1. Absolutely, David! Keep searching the CS and good luck!
