A year ago, Noddy Holder declared open our Rewind Shop @ Mindful Gifts CIC in Darlaston. We are proud of what we have achieved in a year. Many customers visited to browse through our vinyl records section. We had visitors come from all over the country for the vintage furniture we had restored. Our retro shop window caught passers-by eyes as they went past and put a smile on their face. We had people with dementia visit with their families. We enabled people to go ‘into the zone’ as they looked for their favourite music. We enabled more people to volunteer for us. Rewind has been wonderful; however, we have now closed our doors due to the lease coming to an end. The good news is we have a mini Rewind section in our Mindful Gifts CIC shop. Not as much vinyl LPs but a good range of CDs, DVDs, cassettes, vinyl singles and games. Thank you to all the customers and volunteers that supported us and hope to see you all again! www.mindfulgifts.co.uk
Time on your hands? Then get them busy documenting your memories. You can do this on a laptop, scrap book or in one of our chronological order This is My Life Books. Have you ever thought, I wished I had asked a loved one more about their past when they were here? We often wish we had learned more about our families past and recorded these precious memories for our future families to read and learn about. Documenting our life stories is something that we all must do and the earlier we start to do this the better. That way we will have our memories recorded before they fade. https://www.mindfulgifts.co.uk/gift-ideas/this-is-my-life-book-to-document-life-stories-memory-book-detail
