Guest Blog: Windfalls @ Selmes
Yet again, through a second hand shopping map I have met someone doing amazing things. This time it is in Blenheim.
Windfalls is a second hand gardening goods shop selling anything gardening related. From vases, tools, garden hats, pictures, pots, shoes, boots, books, statues, figurines, magazines and baskets.
We are a Garden Centre Trust, set up to employ intellectually and some physically disabled workers. It gives them a reason to get up in the morning and gets them off the benefit. We run on the smell of an oily rag and the back room in our retail shop had never really worked… until now. Since we opened Windfalls in September 2016, we have raised over $12,500.00. It has been a real success story.
Money raised goes towards the running costs and site improvements for our Garden Centre, which is the largest in size (and has incredible pricing) in Marlborough.
