IT'S not often a business owner sells something without making a profit, but Sandgate business owner Danielle Goldstone has something more important than money in mind.

Ms Goldstone's Brighton Road store Something About Audrey has become the first bricks-and-mortar shop to stock Shorncliffe-based charity Share the Dignity's Handbags with Heart range.

Two designer black handbags, with custom pink lining - in salute to the charity's colour of choice - make up the range previously only available on the charity's website.

Ms Goldstone said she was approached by charity founder and local Rochelle Courtenay about stocking the bags - an idea that Ms Goldstone jumped at.

"I just thought it was a great idea,” she said.

Ms Goldstone said Share the Dignity's work to provide homeless women, often victims of domestic violence, with basic sanitary needs had struck a chord with her.

"I've never heard of a charity doing work like this before. I think the concept is a great idea.”

Ms Goldstone said the bags were available in two designs - the Jane Bag, a chic black tote which she said made an ideal laptop bag, and the more casual Paula Bag.

Find the bags at Something about Audrey, 111 Brighton Road.
