Books and DVDs for 50p What’s not to like?


We at the Centre of Pendeen are very dedicated recyclers.

We always have a fantastic selection of  second-hand hardback and paperback fiction and non-fiction books on sale at 50p per book. In addition, we have a selection of children books often selling for as little as 20p, so real pocket money prices. All our books can be browsed in the porch. Last year we sold well over 2500 books!

The money raised goes towards the running of The Centre. If you are turning out, please think of us and donate any unwanted books so that we can recycle them for someone else to enjoy.

Many thanks to Jackie and Wendy who look after the donated books  and ensure that they are presented beautifully.

You can choose your books (or drop off your donated books) during The Centre opening hours 9.30am – 3pm on weekdays and during our twice monthly Farmers’ Market on Saturdays between 10 am – 1pm.

We have a wide selection of second-hand DVDs for sale in our reception area at 50p.

Bling and Buy event 2016

We regularly hold big, community recycling events, with a theme, which run for a fortnight only. In recent times, we have held Bling and Buy (pre-loved jewellery), Kitchenalia (second-hand kitchen/cooking items) and Accessories to Go (nearly new handbags, scarves, hats shoes and umbrellas etc.).

Our latest community recycling, This and That, is open for business. Come and find a fabulous bargain: lots of everything to choose from. We have crockery, pictures, cushions, ornaments, glassware, treen, pottery, jewellery, bedding, curtains, small tables, jigsaws and games and many, many others items.

The Centre would like to say a very big thank you to all of you who have so generously donated books, DVDs and other items for us to recycle.

Our next recycling event is at the planning stage and hasn’t even got a name yet. We will be recycling women’s, men’s and children’s clothes on 26 and 27 August this year. So, if you are decluttering your wardrobe soon please bear us in mind. Watch this space!
