Day 25: January Mindful Writing Challenge

Enter a curiosity shop. Musty scents of old clothes and unwanted knick-knacks fill your nostrils. It feels old from the bland carpet under foot to the bland volunteer standing by the till. It feels deprived of energy by the unwealthy clients it attracts. But here is a hidden treasure trove tucked in behind the warm welcome of unpaid staff. For those prepared to spend time to save money for a ‘good cause’, the opportunity is here to revamp a wardrobe, improve a library, and build a DVD collection. Blessed be the Charity Shop!
