Notes for Guidance: Donating items to the shop.

Whilst we are delighted to accept donations of goods, we do have very limited space and large pieces of furniture are a bit of a problem for us! Please let us know if you have larger items to donate and we will arrange to be there for delivery or collection if possible. Alternatively you may like to give us a card describing the larger item to display in the window and make a donation in the event of your item selling.

A phone number is available on the shop door or you can always email the

PLEASE DO NOT donate broken items, especially toys or glassware.
PLEASE DO indicate if jigsaws have pieces missing - or if complete.

PLEASE ensure that donated clothing has no paint or grease marks.

"Uncle Wainwright's" is a rather small shop staffed by volunteers to raise funds for St Mary's Anglican Church, Appledore. All goods sold from the shop are donated by local people and we have something for everyone! All funds go to preserving and repairing the Church,

You are welcome to come and browse. Although the shop is small, it is an Aladdin's cave crammed with items that someone regarded as junk and someone else will cherish as treasure! We have a large selection of good quality clothing for the whole family, plus books, records, tapes, videos, bric-a-brac, chinaware, glassware, kitchen and bathroom items, books, pictures, frames, fashion jewellery, books, table linen, bed linen, curtains, toys, small items of furniture, jigsaws and .... more books! 

We also sell fresh cut flowers throughout the summer months - but come early as they go very quickly!

If you are looking for something in particular, please ask - it may be in the back room but not yet labeled, priced and on display! 

Hope to see you soon!
