Building on the recent success of our SNAP Cymru Siop in Llandrindod Wells, we plan to open three more shops in Neath, Pembroke Dock and Llanelli. Our shop strategy will support SNAP Cymru in becoming more independent and sustainable in the future and ensure our services are both accessible and visible in the communities we serve.
Our Neath shop, located in Alfred Street, will be open before Christmas; and we are aiming to open both the Pembroke Dock shop, in Lower Meyrick Street, and the Llanelli shop, in Cowell Street, in the New year.
We are on the look-out for good quality items for sale in our exciting new shops. Items can include:
- Good quality second hand clothes, especially ladies vintage or antique fashion
- Fashion accessories such as jewelry, furs, hats shoes and handbags
- Bric-a-brac including ornaments, pictures, vases, crockery and cutlery
- New or second hand books, LP’s, CDs and DVDs
- Good quality furniture
Please remember – if you wouldn’t want to buy it, we probably can’t sell it.Our customers will be looking for good quality items
Taking part in donating items for our shop is a really fun way to support SNAP Cymru! Please ask family and friends to donate generously.
We also welcome the expertise and contributions of any willing volunteers. Not only is this an opportunity to play a positive part in this exciting development of the organisation, but also one where you can learn new skills whilst directly engaging the public. Both volunteers and donations are integral to Snap Cymru’s future sustainability efforts and we wish to thank in advance everyone who helps us.
You can bring items to our collection depot at 1 South Road, Penallta, CF82 7ST, any of our offices across Wales, or call us on 01554 778288 to arrange collection.
What to do with unwanted gifts
According to research, we spent £2.1billion on unwanted Christmas gifts in 2012. That means on average we each received at least two unwanted presents.
But you don’t have to leave them to gather dust; why not donate them to SNAP Cymru to sell in our charity shops.
