    HI,

    I've just been to Banardos in Rhyl, and although I haven't seen any designer gear yet but I brought some clothes for my little girl that were Boots Mini Mode and George brand new for £1-£2!

    They are donated in kind and are all brand new.
  • Hello, I am new here but I just had to register to let you know that there is a site that lists charity shops in the UK http://www.charityshops.org.uk !! Whenever I go to a new town like Bath or Bristol (I live in Cardiff) I print off a list so I know where they are. I have now given a big secret away. Darrnnn!!!!

    I've been pretty impressed with Shaw Trust shops - not only are their items reasonably priced, but they're the only ones in my town who've said "thank you" for donations, instead of "put it over there".
    Overpay!
  • As you'd imagine for that sort of area, the Oxfam at the top of Gloucester Road is full of very nice, recent, exc cond hardbacks, and loads of very expensive-looking shoes and handbags!

    If you're in Rochester, go over the Bridge and on the High Street in Strood there's a Shelter charity shop. I got a brand new Ralph Lauren bag still with tags on for £6.99 there! They have lots of new stuff

    MIND in Camden - 20 Camden road, NW1, just a minute from Camden Town tube stn. It is arranged rather irregularly, but that meaans for those willing to hunt there are some great bargains and it seems to be cheaper that all the other charity shops in the area.
    In terms of best town for charity shops, I nominate BARNSLEY. there are enough to keep you occupied for a whole afternoon or more and they are all cheap and have good stuff.
  • I bought a fab cashmire mix winter coat by Calvin Klein for £20 in the middle of the summer from one of the Notting Hill shops (sorry can't remember which) it looks brand new so they were probably just getting rid of out of season stuff.

    My favourites are the Ian Rennie hospice shope in Tring, where I got Phase 8 trousers for £1, and the Scope shop in Watford High St, where I got unworn Karen Millen trousers for £3.95.
