The Sussex Beacon’s charity shops on St James Street and London Road are getting in the Halloween spirit by holding a secret auction for a range of weird and wonderful items displayed in their windows.
As well as traditional Halloween decorations, the St James street shop window has an old apothecary style cabinet with jars and lights. The London Road store has a mad scientist lab display complete with a bubbling crocodile head in ‘formaldehyde.’ Items up for grabs include electric static energy balls, old Victorian magnifying glasses, books, bell jars and stuffed crows!
All the items in the window are included in the auction. Bids are placed in a sealed box until Halloween, when the box is opened and the highest bidders are revealed.
Simon Dowe, Chief Executive at The Sussex Beacon said “Our Halloween Auction is amazing! If you’re looking for something unique, bizarre or a talking point, there are plenty of things to choose from. Even better, the winning bids will go towards our vital work, supporting people living with HIV across Sussex. It’s a great cause, so we hope to see plenty of people ‘coffin’ up.”
