Re: French High Street charity shops?

Do you have an annual Gratifaria in your French region.?We do and I think they're a fantastic idea. Our Gratifaria is organised by local Red Cross and local volunteers who invite people to bring their unwanted items. These can be books, household items, clothing etc. Items are arranged in different sections, usually displayed on the ground. Anyone can deposit items and anyone can take away what they want free of charge.. I've taken loads of unwanted things and found one or two treasures to take home . Most stuff gets taken on the day, any leftovers go to Red Cross shop (yes they have one at the office) or items go to Emmaus.

We have one (called something completely different) once a year at the Mairie. Having said that, I've never been there to see it!

We've also got a 'Box a Dons' in town where people can leave things and anyone can take them. Presumably the council clear out the junk regularly, but it's quite well used.
