'It's Donated' is an independent charity shop that is absolutely packed full of treasures and well worth a visit if you're in York. It's in 'The Groves' a residential area near St. John's Uni and the Hospital. I think it's closed on Wednesdays.

I bought a book, a vintage piece of children's fabric and this Bodum Assam Tea Press, in great condition, £2...I'm so pleased as new ones cost £24.
So tonight I'll try my lovely Earl Grey Blue Flower tea from Camellia Sinensis www.camelliasteahouse.com which is a tea room and retail shop off Carnaby Street.
S is a very accomplished lace-maker, crocheter (is that a word?) and knitter. Here is one of two tea cosies she donated to my Macmillan raffle...
|Tea cosy expertly knitted by friend S. which was a raffle prize at my|
Macmillan coffee morning - sadly I didn't win *sob*
(Oooh and another couple of good charity shops in York are the RSPCA one in Gillygate and the Salvation Army one on the corner of Gillygate, opposite Lord Mayor's walk...)
Back soon hopefully, as life is a bit manic,
Take care x
