if i walk to my office from ealing broadway station (takes about an hour) then i get to pass a couple of charity shops.
and often on a monday morning there’s stuff outside left by anonymous weekend donators. and often it’s been inspected by passers by and the good bits taken away.
but it ends up being like the shop has spilled out in the street, and i for one am attracted by the rich seam of bric-a-brac and randomness
there was a great selection yesterday morning including training manuals on lubricants, adhesives and sealers, and a box of floppy disks
what more could you want ?
