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. Children’s books are only 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 beautifully presented.
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.
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 ongoing community recycling, This and That, is open for business until further notice. Come and find a really fabulous bargain: lots of everything to choose from. We have crockery, pictures, cushions, ornaments, glassware, treen, pottery, jewellery, bedding, curtains, small tables, vinyl records, jigsaws, photo frames, games, hand crafted gifts and many, many other 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.
Second Time Around
Our next recycling event will be Second Time Around. We will be recycling women’s, men’s and children’s clothes on the August Bank Holiday weekend (Sunday 26 and Monday 27 August) this year. So, if you are decluttering your wardrobe soon please bear us in mind. We are accepting donations of pre-loved clothes from now until mid August. Please bring them to The Centre between 9.30am and 3.00pm on weekdays or during a Farmers’ Market on the first and third Saturday each month. We can also collect if you wish. Please ring Sandra on 787899 to arrange a collection time to suit you. The proceeds of this recycling event will be donated to four local charities: St Julia’s Hospice; The Children’s Ark, Pendeen; The Memory Café, St Just and The Centre of Pendeen.
