    I like browsing charity shops for Football stuff especially books.I get a nice feeling picking up a book for a couple of quid, especially one I've been looking for a while.This afternoon in a shop in the city centre there was a shelf full of books with half a dozen on football. Two caught my eye one on kits and the other an award winning magazine type book. Its packed with pictures of grounds/supporters very iconic and on googling it found out its won awards for photography etc.
    Called : The Homes Of Football the passion of a nation by Stuart Clarke. What a find ! Anyone else picked up a bargain in a charity shop ?

    I've got a bit of a shirt collection. Not a charity shop but I did find this understated number for a tenner in a TK Maxx a few years back

    There's something about Ligue 1 around that time, they went mental with the away shirts

    The first of these would be a great RB Coventry kit and the last one is certainly better than the current home kit

    There was a Villa shirt in a charity shop for a fiver. I've also seen Albion and Leicester tops too. You know when you get the urge for a bit of vandalism but just stop short !

    I've heard that a pair of scissors and an old villa shirt are often sold together. If not scissors then a box of matches

    I pick up a shirt of the local team when I'm travelling abroad. Only started doing it recently, but I already have Marseille, Hertha Berlin, Bayern Munich, St Etienne and Buriram United (Thailand) kits.

    Oh and I have a Poland National Team Kit with Lewandowski on the back as he scored the winner for them in a game that won me £2300!

    I always used to visit charity shops to look for old cameras. I only ever found one really good one (an old bellows type camera in excellent condition) that was reasonably priced. But now its sitting in a drawer because you cannot buy or process the film for it any more.

    I've picked up some bargains in charity shops. Books,Football tops,and music stuff. I have noticed though that many of these shops have upped their prices,so they're not always that cheap.
