Oxfam Boutique, Westbourne Grove

Every now and then you’ll come across an Oxfam that seems that little bit extra special. Exhibit A: the Westbourne Grove store. Once inside, you’d be forgiven for forgetting that it’s a charity shop as the space has a boutique-y feel to it and houses vintage finds, designer labels and donated goods that focus on organic, Fair trade products. In the area or not, it’s well worth setting aside some time for a visit.

Octavia Foundation, Chiswick High Road

Focused specifically on Central and West London residents, the Octavia Foundation supports those suffering from social isolation, ill health and unemployment. Its stores located in these areas of London are well-curated and easy to browse. What makes them so special? The likelihood of finding something of a fashion investment is significantly more probable than in others.

Octavia Foundation, 294 Chiswick High Road, London +44 20 8747 8744

FARA Kids and Baby, Notting Hill

Perhaps unsurprisingly when you think about the rate at which children grow out of their clothes, there’s no shortage of updated stock in the FARA Kids and Baby store on Ledbury Road. Expect to find nearly-new items that will not only serve the purpose but look great as well.

Fara Kids and Baby, 39 Ledbury Rd, Notting Hill, London, +44 20 7229 3634

British Red Cross, Chelsea

If there were such a thing as a ‘designer label’ charity shop then the British Red Cross space in Chelsea would be it. Positioned in one of London’s most affluent areas, it’s no surprise that the donated items are of a high caliber. Expect luxury labels and price points that reflect them – a steal compared to buying brand new but somewhat more expensive than what you might be used to finding on a charity shop floor.

British Red Cross, 69-71 Old Church Street, London +44 20 7376 7300

Trinity Hospice, Kensington

Those in-the-know head to Trinity Hospice in Kensington to unearth hidden pre-loved designer bags and accessories as well as nearly-new womenswear items that you’d be delighted you never paid full price for. There’s a focus on women’s clothing here so expect to leave with at least one or two new wardrobe items.

Trinity Hospice, 31 Kensington Church St, Kensington +44

Cancer Research UK, Kensington

It’s not unusual to come across pre-loved designer labels in this Kensington store, but that’s true of many of the charity shops in our West London hitlist. Be it footwear, outerwear or a little decorative jewellery that you’re looking to add to your collection, head here before hitting the highstreet stores and you might just find something that no-one else is already wearing this season.

Cancer Research UK, 219 Kensington High Street, London +44 20 7939 0485

Mary’s Living and Giving, Fulham

It’s unusual to find swimwear in a charity shop but Mary Portas’ Living and Giving store in Fulham stocks DvF pieces that will set the tone for your next poolside retreat. Easily mistaken for a high-end fashion outlet, this space is beautifully designed, well-stocked and features a comprehensive gift and greeting card offering to boot.

Mary’s Living and Giving, 206 Fulham Road, London +44 20 7351 4615
