By shopping second-hand, you will be taking a stand against the mass-production of new clothes and items, giving somebody’s pre-loved items a new home, helping raise money for your local charity all without burning a hole in your pocket. Our charity shops are full of quality-used goods, you never know what treasures you may find inside. From stylish home decor and comfy shoes, to the perfect dress for your upcoming do!
We have charity shops located across Dorset, including: Westbourne, Ashely Cross, Christchurch, Wimborne and we have recently opened a brand-new shop in Swanage. We also sell some wonderful second-hand and vintage items on eBay, where you may just grab yourself an excellent bargain.
Every time you donate a bag of your pre-loved items to one of our charity shops, not only are you stopping clothes from going to landfill, each bag you donate is worth around £15, which could help us pay for one hour of a nurses time towards supporting people with a life-limiting illness, their families, carers and loved ones in your community.
For larger items, we run a FREE collection service. Simply fill out our form and our team will come along to your home and pick up any large items or help with house clearances.
Around 1/3 of young women in the UK think that an item of clothing is ‘old’ after they’ve worn it once or twice, help us to change this idea and raise awareness that sustainable shopping just got more fashionable!
