Last week I made a research field trip to the charity shops of Honiton, Devon. Last time I visited around twelve years ago, the High Street of this small Devonian Town was full of Antique shops....a very different retail experience this time....Honiton now boasts no fewer than nine chazzers (charity shops). Needless to say, I managed to make several charitable donations along the way.

I'd stuck lucky here, but on closer inspection, the one seen here in
the window didn't have adjustable legs.

I was saddened to find that the only vestage of Honitons once thriving ceramics industry was this 'paint your own pottery' cafe.
