Yeah, but is the important aspect that it's charity based, or that it's
where you buy cheap junk (ie, "thrift store" in american parlance).
Also, didn't I read somewhere that it was okay to use terms that only have
local relevance? Are there any policy/guideline documents behind tagging
that I should read? As I've commented before, it makes no sense to me at all
that the choice of what tags to use has so many different sources: wiki,
tagwatch/osmdoc/..., potlatch/josm/merkaartor/..., mapnik/osmrender/...
Surely it's time to get a little more organised about this.
