Photos around a charity shop

Since January I’ve been volunteering at a local charity shop. Having now secured full time, paid employment, I’m winding down my hours and don’t know how much longer I’ll be there. The shop is a beautiful old building that used to be a local bookstore, and before that a post office, and as you’d expect is filled with trinkets and all manner of photogenic eccentricities. Queue some photos.
