Oxfam Books & Music, located on Back Wynd, have started selling bags of old art books to students for a fiver.

The charity shop only puts good quality second-hand books on their shelves and would normally recycle old books that are not fit for sale. These bags would contain the books that do not quite meet the standards to be put on the shelves.

The assistant manager of the shop, Bruce, explained that they have had art students coming in to buy materials for their projects before and these students would spend more money on good quality books to just rip them up to create something else. It then gave them the idea to sell a bag with numerous books in that they wouldn’t normally put on the shelves for students to take away, rip up and do whatever they want to for just £5.

The books in the bags would be perfect for using in projects such as collages, decoupage and many other things.

This would mean that donations given to the shop aren’t being wasted and someone can find a use for them, students are getting a bag of materials for £5, and the money is going to a good cause.

The managers at Oxfam have advised that it is best to give them a couple of days notice for the bag of books as it will give them time to make up the bag and get a good collection ready to be picked up from their store on Back Wynd. To arrange a bag either call their store at 01224 642490 or drop them a Facebook message.
