    At the car boot sale yesterday I spotted

    two ladies selling my stuff!

    Over the xmas holidays we had a mass clear out here and ended up with 12 black bags of old clothes that we took and left on the growing pile outside a village charity shop.

    Yesterday at the car boot sale I spotted a few bits and low and behold on looking thru their rails it was my stuff,my hubbys stuff and the kids stuff I had donated to charity,I was so mad I had to walk away but they had obviously pinched the bags from the charity shop pile,how low can you get

    could have been worse.... they could have started selling it on here:whistling:

    thats funny, it is possible though that they were doing a car boot sale for the charity involved

    no as the car booty makes any charity stalls display a large sign:x

    i would have asked where they got it and if the reply was obviousley a lie i would expose them then trash there stall and chomp there heads off and let out a very loud roar as i am rappy

    So the moral of that story is don't leave your stuff outside the charity shop. It's a well known trick, I know someone who goes out every Sunday evening and collects all the stuff from the charity shop doorways and then sells it either on EBay or at a car boot. They make about £50 a week (all tax free).

    I honestly didnt think people would stoop so low as to nick from a charity shop:x

    mi bloods up now: KILL INJURE WOUND

    You should have asked in a loud voice where they got it ... would matter if they told porkies at least you could alert everyone they had illgotten gains ..

    if could prove call the coppers
    thieving scum
    otherwise loud fuss... not like they are ging to call them

    There are some people how ever who go to charity shops and buy things to then sell at a carboot sale for a higher price. Are you sure this wasn't the case?

    I know a girl who has an ebay bussiness, she goes round the charity shops buying clothes and flogs them on ebay at a greater price.

    I believe the charity shop staff sometimes have first refusal on the stuff left at their shop, I've seen them wildly going through the bags in case of any hidden designer gems!!(then secretly keeping them)

    I guess this could be the case!!

    I see people by the charity shops by me going thru the bags on a Sunday see what they can find. On a lot of the charity shops by me now they have big signs saying not too leave bags over the weekend

    nibble

    I'd have bought them back............took them back to the charity shop, dump them outside and wait for them to come back again. Then tie them both in bin bags and leave them there for collection. :-D

    One day i was rturning a video to blockbuster which has a charity shop nearby when a young lady pulled up on a bicycle carrying a sack and dropped it outside the charity shop,I thought how nice but then shepicked up another sack full of clothes and rode away,i went from admiration to disgust in about two seconds lol,

    We got a call last week saying that the undertakers had been broken in to and the safe stolen. We had asked for donation to Woodlands Hospice instead of flowers (family flowers only) for my grandads funeral. They hadnt given cheques/money to the charity yet because they were waiting to see if any more came in. We are having to try and find out who gave what and whether it was money or a cheque.

    It doesnt get much lower than stealing from an undertakers!

    Yup they do, my aunty worked in a charity shop for a while, but she was disgusted by the other staff and ended up leaving. They would take the stuff that was, or looked, brand new and sell it.
