Charity Shops

Postby Archie » Sat Feb 21, 2009 5:52 pm

I was in a local charity shop this morning, and spotted several Steptoe video's.
After looking at the episodes I chose 'Men Of Letters' one of my favourite episodes.

I asked the woman how much the videos were ?, she replied 2 for £1 :o I left the shop with all 6 tapes each tape has 3 episodes !.

Thinking about it later on I wondered if I should have bought them all as I already have them on DVD and video's I've taped from the telly over the years.
Maybe I should have left them for someone who doesn't have them, or someone may have become a fan after watching them :?

It was a good move to by the video tapes Archie.

It will allow you to watch some of the episodes in full without the unneccessary cuts.

2 for £1?

Blimey, your local charity shop is cheaper than mine... videos are £1.99 each there...

Bargin!
How much is that in old money? :lol:
No one where I live puts anything good in charity shops. Personally I'm still waiting for the rag and bone man to come round the street, to get rid of my stuff :lol: 8)

Not in my family, my auntie will not part with her video. She still tapes stuff that way too. Then again maybe that's a good thing, she usually breaks anything new and technical :roll:

This has reminded me to have a luck next time I go out, if I'm not on other missions. There was a time I went shopping for fun, now I only go when I have to like birthdays and so on, or a mate's party, but that is a need. :D

I knew what an LP was! :P
All I have is HMV, and that place can really get annoying. A mate of mine when he was younger couldn't buy a 12 dvd because he had no ID, he was 17!
