A volunteer is hoping she can build on her debut pop-up market event to organise bigger and better sales in the future.
The market, held at the Royal Voluntary Service centre in York Road, Maidenhead, gave the opportunity for people to sell their nearly-new items and raise those much-needed funds ahead of the festive season.
There was also a raffle which offered bath bombs, perfumes and a champagne and chocolate set to raise money to support the work of the Royal Voluntary Service, which cares for elderly people across the country.
Organiser Angela Mitchell hopes word will spread about the pop-up market, which took place on Saturday.
"It's definitely something that is needed and there was a lot of interest in it.
"It was quite well supported. People sold lots of clothes, there was a handbag stall, vintage stalls and other interesting items.
"I don't work for the charity, I just wanted a chance to give something back to the community."
Angela is hoping to organise another sale in the spring.
