I know, I know, you might be questioning if a festival is really the place to go on a shopping spree but trust me, you can find so much more than clothes in a festival charity shop. For starters the staff are always cheerful, you can pick up blankets and knitted hats to keep you warm in your tents, and kit yourself out with a festival fancy dress outfit with change from a tenner – what’s not to love, eh?
At Glastonbury, Oxfam alone had three different festival shops spread out across the site, catering for knitwear and blankets, classic festival vintage and an animal-themed stall with leopard print and sequins, and there were also several other charities there too. So if it’s Latitude today or WOMAD next weekend, don’t forget to pop along and pick up a bargain.
Have a great weekend!
