The well regarded Independent shop is now being sold due to our clients decision to re-locate however she will ensure a full business handover is given to ensure a smooth transition.
Give a Little was set up to help support both charities located in the UK and overseas and has been awarded as the "best recycling charity shop in Streatham".
The shop is fully stocked by local donations and displayed in a quirky, unique way to best display hundreds of goodies available to buy.
The sale of the business includes -
Desk/display and till
All bookshelves and clothes rails and cupboards

The community oriented shop is an ‘Aladdin’s Cave’ with an ever changing choice which changes daily! Key items always include - hand-bags, good quality clothing for adults and children, shoes, hats, toys, belts, bric-a-brac, books, linen, games, records, electricals, jewellery and some small pieces of furniture.
It is clear to see the staff and volunteers enjoy working in the shop, they have created a relaxing environment where customers/supporters can sit and relax, soak up the music
What makes Give a Little different from other charity shops is the cause they support changes every 3-4 months, they also listen to their customers/supporters to which charities they would like to try and help.
