This weekend, as the rain was off, I decided to head up to Jericho to see what vintage pieces I could find. I wasn’t too impressed to wake up with red, itchy eyes meaning no hay fever face photos of me but I was wearing a lovely blue vintage Devonshire Lady dress from Oxfam Hove (with tights of course) but alas, thought it best to keep my face out of my blog this weekend!
I walked into town and took a stroll through Christ Church before having a pit stop at the Head of the River pub.
After a little drink, I headed up to Jericho with first point of call, Little Clarendon Street. I visited the Sobell House Hospice shop and having never been in here I was excited to see what I could find. Unfortunately, not much. The clothes were ok with a mixture of the basic ‘work’ items (which I’d never wear) and some bridesmaid dresses. However, the book section and homewares downstairs were quite good and I spotted a cool dog teapot. It was nice to visit a small independent charity shop and I’d definitely visit again.
Uncle Sam’s was closed so no luck there and then I headed round the corner to the Mind charity shop. This is very pretty inside and had some great high street and designer pieces but no vintage for me. A pretty unsuccessful trip but it was good to venture out of East Oxford so we headed up to Port Meadow and then walked along the river into town. Maybe next time Jericho….
Do you have any suggestions of shops I could visit in North Oxford? Let me know!
