I love hiking, travel, photography, art, and looking for peaceful places in a busy cityscape. I'm also dabbling in some travel writing - https://tinamaleela.home.blog

A hidden thrift shop to add to your op shopping trail
A wonderful way to support charitable organisations is to spend a few dollars at thrift shops that help the most needy in our community. One such shop is The Little King's Movement Thrift Shop which is run by a committed group of volunteers who are helping people with disabilities.
The store is neatly organised with sections for books and media, vintage clothing, menswear, manchester, homewares, bric-a-brac, jewellery, children's clothing, and more. Allow yourself about an hour to browse through everything.
History The LKM website says: "The Movement was established in 1967. A small group of people saw a great need to work, support and interact with people with cerebral palsy. It wasn't long before their aim had to be extended to all forms of disabilities due to popular demand."
Activities and services The Little King's Movement organises activities for the disabled and their carers, such as: *Religious fellowship (last Sunday of each month) *Arts and craft (Tuesday mornings) *Young adult outings and short trips (first Saturday of each month) *Door-knock and church appeal (January/February) *Special schools and instructions (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday) *Golden Years seniors' social get-together (last Friday of each month)
