This large, friendly charity shop serves a mix of local Highbury residents from the down-at-heel to the well-to-do. There are always a few gaudy ballgowns and opulent polyester wedding dresses alongside a vast range of high-street labels – think Dorothy Perkins, Burton and New Look. You do get the odd gem though, such as a new Thomas Pink shirt or Fortnum & Mason hamper. The eclectic mix of bric-a-brac at the back of the shop is also worth a snoop – many a kitsch candlestick to be found here. Turnover is fast so it’s worth checking frequently.

Sometimes you can find little gems in here but in general the prices are extortionate for a charity shop, considering all their stock is free donation. I've even seen 2nd hand Primark items on sale for more than they would cost brand new! I know this is a charity, but it really feels as though they are taking the p....


I appreciate that Marie curie cancer shop is a worthy endeavour and I am keen to support charity shops and their many different causes. However, I do think that the management at the Highbury corner branch are a little label obsessed ,irrespective of condition and quality. I saw a reiss coat in there recently priced at £35 and It was really tatty, old and of poor condition .In comparison to the majority of charity shops this one is overpriced .
