Is it just my local charity shop ladies or is it just me? Yesterday I took a wander down to my charity shop, as I can now because I'm not at work for the whole time it's open, and after persuing the books and crockery I asked to see the button boxes.
The lovely grey haired, usually mild mannered, lady immediately asked me "Why?" eyeing me suspiciously.
"Because I'd like to have a look please" I replied.
"Hmmm. What is it you're after exactly?"
"Nothing in particular I just like to have a look to see if any catch my eye."
Honestly the way she hovered over me when I was finally allowed access to them, you'd think I was away to throw them all in my pocket and run away to Brazil with the riches of the world.
I did buy some lovely green buttons but even then I felt I'd done something wrong. Maybe she just loves her buttons too and doesn't like anyone else taking them away. Maybe one day I'll be the old lady in the charity shop who tries to hide the button tins. LOL
