Give charity shops a chance

Written by Laura Gooderham.

It’s that time of the year again when bikinis, summer dresses and sandals are safely stored away, ready for the anticipated return of next year’s warm weather.

Instead, you need to reach for the woolly jumpers, long knit cardigans and ankle boots to keep you toasty throughout this season. We know that it can be hard to keep warm and look good throughout the cold weather on a tight budget, but have you ever considered heading to a charity shop for your latest fashion fix?

In Lincoln, charity shops are hugely accessible with many being on and around the main High Street. The British Red Cross shop has a whole range of winter bargains, as does Oxfam and Cancer Research UK. Each shop houses a great range of vintage finds such as scarves, parkas and retro jackets, so keep a keen eye out.

Encouraging charity shopping is not only great for our purse strings, but for the national and local charities themselves. There isn’t a more rewarding way to shop than by helping people that need aid so desperately.

So, whether you’re looking for a charity shop treasure or a just something basic to freshen up your look, you don’t have to spend a fortune to look good this winter.
