In fact, one of our research team, PHD student Jenna Littlejohn is here at the shop today to help us launch Bags of Memory.”The new store features vintage gifts and homeware, scarves and antiques, all of which have been donated to the charity.Sarah said: “DSN are really excited by Bags of Memory, we have some fantastic vintage gifts and accessories. Many of the donations are completely unique someone even donated a genuine vintage Mulberry bag!”But we urgently need more donations of bags, scarves and accessories to help us raise as much as possible we would love people to drop their donations off at the shop.
