The festival season is over but that is not reason for our Oxfam Festival Shop Team to settle back. As the most terrifying day of the year is approaching, and people are desperately looking for the perfect costume, Oxfam has stepped forward and set a small pop-up shop in London.
Located in Boxpark, a small and cosy shopping centre in the arty Shoreditch area, you have the chance to find genuine treasures. I greatly enjoyed volunteering there for a few hours. It was a real pleasure to be surrounded of absolutely lovely, precious and especially, unique clothing! Going charity shopping is the only way you will find that uniqueness you are looking for as you will rarely find two same items.
All these clothes displayed are brought from our Oxfam Wastesaver in Batley, West Yorkshire. You will be able to find assorted outfits, second-hand or brand-new, cashmere or also luxurious brands like Burberry or Christian Lacroix. From dark and Gothic dresses, to red devil or even shiny and glamorous look, all of them donated to Oxfam. Not only that but accessories like hats or wigs are also available! They have
all been carefully selected by our volunteers for an occasion like Halloween.
We raised around £4.000 last year and we intend to beat that number with your help, fighting the poverty all together.
If you still haven’t got your fancy dress for this Halloween come around, and we will help you with last minute costume ideas. You can find us from Tuesday 24th until Sunday 29th of October 2017 in unit 26 of Boxpark Shoreditch. Don’t miss this opportunity!
