A local charity shop is the "end of the line" for donated goods. They have tried to sell them for a higher price in various locations and eventually end up in my local shop. Everything is 25p 50p or £1. Adult clothing is £1. This dress had padded power sleeves, with ruffled net to make the sleeve stand out, and was crusted with beads and sequins. One evening of watching television with a stitch ripper soon filled these used 8" soft drinks bottles. I didn't bother to unpick the sequins but I kept the shoulder pads to make wrist pin cushions and I also kept the red net. Bargain!!
