Returned to Glory has won ‘Specialist Shop of the Year’ at the national Charity Retail Association Awards.
This is a really prestigious award and Returned to Glory, our furniture and upcycling showroom at Unit 5, Northbridge Road, Berkhamsted, HP4 1EH, beat off stiff competition from 380 other charities across the whole of the UK with their design-led approach, which puts a really innovative spin on charity retailing.

A ‘William Stevens Tavern Clock’
also known as a Parliament

to Returned to Glory and sold on eBay
for a fabulous £1,600! Star ‘collectable’ item must be this Retro portable cassette player, which sold for £360.
