Save it

Tucked just behind Oxford Street is this long-established Salvation Army store. It’s worth noting that it sits just a few stilletto clops from Vogue House, and takes receipt of some very fashionable cast-offs. The store takes up two floors with a variety of clothing, shoes, and accessories, with regular appearances from a range of high street brands such as Oasis, Zara, Warehouse to Hobbs, East and Maxmara.

On our visit, the branch had an incredible selection of branded shoes that looked as if they'd been worn just twice; including labels such as Carvela and Kurt Geiger for £18 a pop. The menswear section offers various suits from £30, shirts, jeans and jumpers such as a barely worn Ted Baker number for £12. For summer, there is also a rail of denim shorts priced more than fairly at £5.99. Clean basic vests from brands like H&M can be snapped up for £1.

Central London isn't exactly well-served with charity shops, certainly not many of this standard.  A high number of the clothes appear to be brand-new and designer label (not surprisingly considering it's proximity to many fashion shops/magazines), with many of the books being uncorrected proofs (i.e. you may get a sneaky pre-release).


As with Jane H below, you may not find anything worth buying but that's the joy of charity shops!  It's a long game, making the big catch all the sweeter.  If you're on Oxford/Regent St this is 100% worth a visit and a pleasant refuge from the crowds.

I went here today for a rummage and found nothing worth buying, just a below average pile of expensive clothing!
