Oxfam Fashion: Boutique Bristol

Oxfam Fashion Blog | Ship-Shape and Bristol Fashion

One of the best bits about writing for Oxfam is meeting new people, from the other bloggers that share their thoughts on ethical fashion to the likes of Sarah Marshall, who runs Bristol’s very own Oxfam Boutique.

When the shop first landed on Park Street, which has been home to some of Bristol’s best independent shops over the years, I was excited that little old Bristol finally had it’s own charity-shop-with-a-twist. The boutiques are more select than Oxfam’s usual charity shops, and Bristol is no different, with Chloe bags and YSL shoes making an (occasional) appearance alongside vintage label staples.

This month I interviewed Bristol’s Oxfam Boutique Manager, Sarah Marshall, and I loved how honest and frank she was. Locals familiar with Park Street can’t have failed to notice that the recession and resulting nationwide shop closures have made a serious dent in one of Bristol’s most prolific shopping destinations, and charity shops have been affected too.

If you want to read about how the boutique has been affected, the shop’s top sellers and what Sarah thinks of Bristol’s best dressed, then click here.

To visit the shop, make a donation or bag yourself a vintage or designer bargain, visit the boutique at 77 Park Street, Bristol, BS1 5PF.

  1. Interesting. I’ve not ever bought anything from there, despite the former manager being a good friend of mine & visiting often. It doesn’t have the rummage factor I usually enjoy in charity shops but then again I’m not a huge Broadmead shopper so horses for courses I suppose! As long as both types of charity shops stick around I’m happy.
