Check our these top tips to help you find some real gems while charity shopping!
We love seeing all the great things you come across in our stores – each week we like to scroll through and find some of your fab bargains from up and down the country!
We begin this week with Esther Uwannah (@isthisesther) who was actually a shop volunteer in our Marylebone store when she came across this beautiful coat with a fur collar. Esther even said it made her feel like a ‘Russian Princess’ – we agree it is definitely a fabulous piece!
As part of the Barnardo’s Retail team, I thought it was about time I got out of the office to see for myself the delights that can be found nestling amongst the rails of our stores.
Flanked with our Marketing Manager Charlie, I hit the streets of Dunfermline, Dalgety Bay, Edinburgh and Glasgow to source my very own #MyBarnardosFinds!
Now, I’m a massive collector of brooches. I literally can’t get enough of them and our stores are absolutely teaming with them. Always take a peek in the glass cabinets as that’s where you’ll find the best ones in all sorts of shapes, colours and sizes and all at around £1.99 each. Here are three that I used to jazz up a plain black winter coat.
We love seeing all of your fabulous #mybarnardosfind posts, so we’ve chosen some of our favourites from this week! Thank you to everyone who pops into our stores to buy and donate – the profits from every purchase help to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable and disadvantaged children and young people.
Our first fabulous find is from @ecrivaine_inquiete who found this outfit in our Stourbridge store. She paired this sweatshirt which was originally from Burton with new Soon jeans (RRP £20!) and completed the outfit with an H&M hat to create the perfect casual look. This entire outfit came to just £11 – what a bargain!
With a noticeable drop in temperature, it’s time to wrap up warm and and find the perfect winter coat. That doesn’t have to mean spending a lot – there’s always a huge range available in Barnardo’s. I found this gorgeous grey wool coat for just £10. Military is making a big comeback this season, so these buttons make the coat bang on trend. Or, why not stand out from the crowd and make a statement with a bold colour? This gorgeous red 80s style coat was a steal at £8 and will brighten up many a dark winters morning.
