Second-hand furniture flew off the shelves as Thames Hospice launched its refurbished homeware store in Dedworth.
Customers packed out the new-look Thames Hospice Home, in Tinkers Lane, and business was booming as sales raked in £11,000 in two days.
The store’s expansion involved refurbishing and extending the sales area to give customers a wider choice of stock across all departments.
A home studio has also been introduced, where a specialist team will revamp items to customers’ specifications.
Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Eileen Quick, Windsor MP Adam Afriyie and comic actor Tim Brooke-Taylor OBE all turned out to officially open the refurbished store on Friday.
Debbie Lloyd, Thames Hospice Home manager, said: “A huge thanks to everyone who shared in our launch day celebrations, bought items or gave us such wonderful comments.
“We couldn’t be happier with our success so far.”
