The Oxfam concept was imported into France in 2007 with the opening of its first store in Lille. Since then, two further stores have been opened in Paris, one in rue Daguerre the other in rue St Ambrose. The pretty, apple-green shopfronts set the tone for these decidedly activist stores where people donate their books, CDs and DVDs, old clothes and a host of other pre-loved items. Oxfam then sorts them and puts them back on the shelves for sale with all proceeds going to a number of international NGOs fighting poverty and inequality around the world. Welcoming staff are on hand to guide you through the wide range on offer. Oxfam also organizes numerous campaigns and offers those who want to do more than just shop several ways of getting more involved in creating a fairer world.
