£4,000... for a pair of charity shop chairs!

- By Sam Walker

A RUMMAGE in a charity shop is usually a chance to bag a bargain, but they don’t often come with four-figure price tags.

Bethany Christian Trust’s shop in Morningsid­e, Edinburgh, is offering for sale two black leather Ralph Lauren chairs that were handed in last week by an unnamed donor.

The asking price of £4,000 for the pair – or £2,500 each – might seem a lot but similar chairs sold recently online in the US for the equivalent of £7,000.

Others are for sale on auction site eBay for £2,700 each.

A spokesman for the trust, which supports homeless people, said: ‘They are quite a bargain. This is the first time we have seen anything like this donated. We have had lots of interest already.’
