It has been set up with support from the RCMA and there will be performances to celebrate its launch this weekend.

Jumble sale at Milgi’s

Every month, Milgi’s host a £1 jumble sale in the warehouse behind their restaurant. Last Sunday, I went along for a browse.

Milgi’s is a wonderful place and I felt completely at home as soon as I got there. I’m ashamed to say that, in ten months of living in Cardiff, I had never been, so of course I was eager to go. I wasn’t disappointed either. My friend told me that their milkshakes were to die for and my banana one certainly lived up to expectations.

But anyway, back to the clothes. A jumble sale is a perfect way to grab some bargains and at Milgi’s, everything was a pound. As you can imagine, a sale where everything is that cheap certainly brought in the punters and the small space soon packed out.

For anyone planning on going to the next one, I’d advise you get there early, for the above reason and to grab yourself the best items.

I came away with a Topshop cardigan (in very good condition), a top (which was only slightly too big) and two bags of fabric offcuts, for only £1.50.

All for the very reasonable sum of £3.50.

Information on the next event can be found on their website.
