This is the best charity shop I have found, I know I know, I said that the charity shops in Marylebone were the best but London has so many neighbourhoods, new and better discoveries can be made every day! This weekend I bought a ball gown with the original tags, and seemingly never been worn for £18. I think I may never go into another high street shop when I can get the same things for a fraction of the price. I know I am always going on about cheep things, but London is expensive. This shop carries things more for the 20-35 crowd. Trendy dresses from Zara, great boots, purses from Paul Frank, jewellery, hat boxes ( these are everywhere now), vinyl records, and bits and bobs for the kitchen. If you still haven't done your Christmas cards, this shop is full of them. I am just so surprised just how many of the things here are actually new not just slightly used. Having people in my family effected by cancer I feel good shopping here, maybe my contributions won't help my family but maybe they will help my grandchildren's family.
While some people find buying second-hand clothes appalling, I'm a big fan of this genre! And this particular store here has served me quite well in the past few months: every time I'm in Crouch End, I pop in here and believe me when I say that I've almost always found something fabulous for my wardrobe: amongst others, there was a Hugo Boss cashmere coat for mere £35; a dress shirts from Pink for only £9 and an Agnes B. sweater for only £3!
My verdict: there are many, many charity stores in London, but this one in particular is well-stocked and very well-managed.
This charity shop always has a good mix of smart, nice clothes in decent condition, due to the area it is in, no doubt. Basically, I recommend it because it always has what you're looking for, good quality trousers, cardigans, tops, t-shirts, in a wide range of sizes.
