A MIX-UP at a charity shop in Thame saw a child’s mini scooter get sold while he and his mother were still in the shop.

Carine Siebert had left her son’s scooter outside while they browsed the High Street store, only to come back and find it had been sold for just £3.

Shop staff admitted the error but still made Carine pay for the goods she was buying while the scooter was being sold.

She said: “We went in as normal and left the little scooter outside, which costs about £50, but when we came out there was no scooter.

“The lady looked a bit worried and said to us - ‘I think I made a mistake’.

“They said they were sorry but there was nothing they could do to help me out.

“I went around town looking for it but I couldn’t see anyone walking about with a scooter.”

A poster has been put in the shop asking for the scooter to be returned for a refund and Carine is also appealing to whoever purchased it to bring it back.

She said: “I just don’t really know what to do now, I hope the person who bought it will see the mistake and bring it back.”
