The Oh So Ethical Guide to Online Charity Shops

There are countless charity shops dotted around but finding time to get to them is difficult when you work 9-5!

I have curated a list of online charity shops for our busy bees and for those who just don’t like to shop in-stores.

  1. oxfam oxfambooksn1  – http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop
  2. Sue Ryder sueryderleicester suerydervintage – http://shop.sueryder.org/
  3. Scope – http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/scope_charity_shop
  4. Marie Curie  – https://shop.mariecurie.org.uk/
  5. British Heart Foundation  – http://giftshop.bhf.org.uk/
  6. Race for Life – https://raceforlife.cancerresearchuk.org/rfl/forms/shop/shop.jsf

I will add more to the list as I discover more but that is the list for now! 

Some of these shops are merchandise from the charity while others are literally online charity shops.

Happy shopping!
