Hello, I’m Holly from @eternalthrifter over on Instagram. Since I can remember I have always shopped in charity shops. As a child, my mum would take me around them and I absolutely loved it! Now it’s my turn to do the same with my daughter. She’s two and her wardrobe is 90% thrifted. I receive compliments all the time on how cute her little outfits are. She was actually the inspiration behind the hashtag which I started on Instagram #charityshopcutie.Read More »
Hello to all you beauties reading this blog! My name is Lou from @get.thrift.faced over on Instagram. I’ve been a keen thrifter for many years now and decided to create my Instagram this summer to join the fight against fast fashion. It may sound ridiculous and little far fetched but if I told you charity shopping has increased my body positivity by 1000% would you believe me? Well you should!
Recycle Week is in full swing and we wanted to get involved. We set some fabulous thrifty bloggers an up-cycling challenge with some pre-loved pieces found in-store. Be sure to follow the blog and our Instagram this week so see what they created!
Today we have the lovely Hannah guest blogging. Keep scrolling and see her creation.
I saw this shirt in Barnardo’s and loved, loved, loved the colours of the check. Just the right amount of autumnal. Rather than just keeping it as a normal shirt I decided to add a ruffle to jazz it up a little.
Before we get stuck in I will quickly introduce myself, I’m Eva (evagoesthrifting) and I have been kindly invited to guest blog post for The-Thrift. I have been shopping in charity shops for years but I officially started boycotting fast fashion in February 2019. However, I had never shopped at Barnardo’s before. This wasn’t out of choice but due to the fact there wasn’t one in Cheltenham where I have been living for the last 3 years and the one in York is on the other side of town (I sound lazy, I know).
Since I was asked to write a blog post, I have been racking my brain thinking about what to write about. I thought it would be fun to head over to the Barnardo’s in York and see what it was all about. I combined this visit with dropping off a hefty donation of clothes and other household bits. The ladies running the shop that day were very grateful and so welcoming (please remember to donate your pre-loved things if they’re in good condition). We soon began chatting and I let them know what I was guest blogging and they let me roam the shop and take photos of basically everything.
Once I had a good look around I went to the changing room armed with lots of options . Not everything in my selection suited me but the shop has two changing rooms, and I felt like I had plenty of freedom to try clothes on and didn’t feel pressured to buy without trying. I hope that people who don’t yet shop in charity shops realise that most charity shops will have a changing room. I wonder whether people might feel put off from buying if they think they can’t try the clothes on. I hope this piece of information might encourage someone to start shopping pre-loved.
Here are the pieces I loved and took home with me.
