Loads of people will be having clear is before Christmas and just want space and not the hassle of selling and a lot of charity shops are quite picky about their donations, so I don't see anything wrong with it.

@lanthanum I'd forgotten about the secondhand toy stall at the Christmas Fayre in the village hall where we used to live.. I let the kids buy whatever they wanted, they were SO thrilled, it was awesome!
DH's face, on the other hand, when we got home.. he was thinking of all the new Christmas toys to come & couldn't believe I'd be so irresponsible.. :-)
Fun memories, thanks! ;-)

@Untamedfemale I'm not in Birmingham but I would check local church groups & facebook groups online, they would probably have details. Good luck!
