The team at the British Red cross sent us a nice invite to the opening of their first ever Vintage Shop, which opened yesterday in Shrewsbury. Sadly we couldn’t go but they sent us pictures and now we wish we had….what lovely vintage treasures they have there! The boots (above) look fabulous, as does the handbag (below), doubtless they have gone by now, but the store has lots of stock so I’m sure there are many other gems to rummage through.
Opening a vintage-only store is a great idea and if this one goes well, The Red Cross will open more (I have already demanded one in Barnes). I always feel just that little bit less guilty buying stuff in charity shop and I think I’m single handedly keeping the Octavia Foundation store in Barnes open, the amount I buy from it. The idea of a vintage only shop makes me come over all giddy with excitement.
For those lucky enough to live in beautiful Shrewsbury, the store is on Mardol Street. Check out the Red Cross website for more details
