Anybody can do anythingWell the British Summertime seems to have dwindled somewhat, and the brollies are back out in force.  If the wet weather is putting you off venturing into the centre of York to visit our shop, why not have a browse online to see if there are any gems which can be sent directly to your door.

We have a range of items available online, including this burst of positivity entitled “Anybody can do anything” by Betty MacDonald.  Set during the Great Depression, this is a lighthearted and at times hysterical story about attempting, and often failing, to find work to support her two young daughters.

This particular book is one of many available through our online store at Abe Books.


We also have books, as well as retro games and graphic novels available from our Oxfam Online shop.  So if you’re ready to take on the world, or feeling somewhat dazed and confused there is almost definitely something to suit your mood.

However, if you do fancy a wander into York, and find that the weather is less than favourable, do pop in to see us on Low Petergate.  As well as fantastic books, and wonderful volunteers, we also sell Oxfam umbrellas!
