Charity bookstore begs customers to stop donating their copies of 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Thrift Store Requests That People Stop Donating Fifty Shades Of Grey

It appears as though the golden age of "Fifty Shades of Grey" has come and gone, as evidenced by one bookstore's inability to handle the influx of donations of the novel.

The charity store in Swansea, South Wales, has received so many copies of the book, in fact, that they have taken to social media to beg customers to stop turning in their extra copies.

We appreciate all your donations, but less Fifty Shades and more Sixties and Seventies vinyl would be good :)

Speaking to Mirror, an employee of the store said, "We appreciate all the donations — but less Fifty Shades and more sixties and seventies vinyl would be good. He continued, saying "There are a lot of people obsessed by Fifty Shades of Grey, we get people bringing in new copies all the time. Enough is enough."

Thanks to the flood of women attempting to remove the novel from their homes, the store has accumulated "literally hundreds" of copies of the erotic "love story." With nothing better to do with them, the store owners got crafty and have turned them into large fort-like structures.

50 Shades of Wall!
