Forget everything you know about charity shops. Bye bye mess, random clothing, ‘for dummies’ books and not so vintage items. With Mary’s living and giving shop you’re entering some kind of fairy tale land where hi-end (and wearable!) brands meets with a cosy space design. In this shop designed with taste & sustainability in mind by Delia Covezzi, you’ll find (among others): Chloe, Marni, Arman, Hobbs, Ted Baker, Viktor and Rolf, All Saints, Isabel Marant, YSL Balanciaga and so on… at charity price of course.
Run by local people for local people (go and meet the lovely Rose when you’re there) Mary’s Living & Giving Shops are a collaboration of people’s ideas, values and beliefs. They are community hubs. They are where you can come to find inspiration, share a bit of local news, a skill, the time of day.
Every item donated or sold through these shops is used to fund the vital work they do at Save the Children. No need for excuses or justification anymore to go shopping when you’re doing it for a good cause is it?
A human and ethical shopping experience, closed Mondays, Open Tues-Sat 10am–6pm and Sun 12–4pm.
Fancy a trip to highgate village?
