My friend Rhona had recommended the shop a while back, and for a long time now it's been on my list of places to check out. Anyway, I finally got along for a visit and I was thoroughly impressed, so thought I'd share the details with you here :-)

Kinder Handl is a not-for-profit community shop selling pre-loved children's items.
Kinder Handl collect or receive children's items that you no longer require, and in return they do the advertising and selling to maximise the profit.
All funds raised go to Yorkhill Children's Charity.
The community organisation welcome all families and friends to come and play at their shop and make any purchases from their wide selection of affordable pre-loved items.
The set-up at the shop is fab and we were quickly welcomed by the friendly volunteers (none of the staff take a salary). There's plenty of space for little ones to play, and there's even a small reading corner where you might find a storytelling sessions being held.
The selection of toys, books and clothing was impressive and everything was very reasonably priced. There really was a happy vibe about the place.
I'm suitably impressed and most definitely will be paying them another visit soon when I have more time to browse.
You can even have a free tea or coffee whilst you are there!
They also offer free delivery of larger items, so if you spot something on their Facebook page you can make a purchase without even going into the shop. What more could you ask for?
