There are not many charity shops in Oxford City Centre. All I can think of is the Oxfam on Broad Street (the first Oxfam ever I’ll have you know!) and then the British Heart Foundation on St Ebbes Street.
Obviously, I have a soft spot for the Oxfam but today I decided to go and have a snoop around the BHF. It’s just opposite the Modern Art Gallery and by Oasis – I always think this is a strange street though, as it’s never very busy with shoppers, so why have a shop there?
It’s a small but bright and modern shop, which packs in a lot. There are plenty of women’s accessories, the usual fashions, a pretty decent music & book section, a men’s range, homewares and children’s – it packs a lot in the space!
I first had a snoop through the accessories, there are lots of jewellery, hats, purses and bags. However, a lot of it, to my eye, is ‘new’. I only think this as there were more than one item on lots of lines. The shoe section and jewellery, I think, were the best.
