Charitable effort by frim

Friday, November 3, 2017 - 10:00

From K. Phillips, Ryde:
REGARDING the letter regarding the Binstead factory
The name of the factory was Columbia Products Ltd. 
It made various fragrant products, perfumes, sprays, soaps, etc. 
It let various charities go to its site once a year and choose items to sell at their bazaars, etc for just trade prices. 
As a guide in the early 70s, I bought an inflatable Swan for 10p — we had just been decimalised and it is still sitting in my bathroom, although its neck is slightly bent with old age.
I think they were taken over a couple of times before they ceased trading.

Editor’s footnote: This are just one of a number of letters received answering Mrs Clay’s query.
