When I look through my wardrobe – whatever the season may be – it’s true that a large proportion of its contents is in fact, second hand. A special vintage piece or a lucky thrifted find. It’s no secret that I love a good rummage through my local charity shop and will often look out...Read More
I’ve spoken before about my love for second hand. Those preloved items someone else no longer wants that catches your eye. With the undeniable facts surrounding materialism and the devastation over-consumerism is having on our planet, the demand for vintage is on the rise.

I do have a little confession to admit here, I have a fiendish and ongoing obsession for visiting charity shops. I’m not sure where this love for second hand clothing and treasures began, but it’s such a favourite hobby of mine. Some may turn up their noses at the thought of rummaging through people’s old...Read More
