Charity Shops and Vintage Clothing

Hey All,

Happy Forever 21 Friday!!

This is a really quick post just to mention a new vintage display that went up in the windows of Age Action on Camden St. this week. Whenever I mention vintage pieces that I’ve found in charity shops in Dublin people often say things like, “Oh that was lucky“, or “I never seem to find anything like that“.

Although there is an element of luck with vintage shopping, and with rumours rife that there is a high-street clothing store buying up a lot of the vintage in the charity shops around Dublin to sell in their own store, it is good to see that some charity shops still have vintage. If the rumours are true, then everyone will loose out. But for now there is still some vintage to be found; these pieces range from the 1950’s – 1980’s and the prices are fantastic. The 50’s prom dress for example is €50.

L-R: 1960’s floral dress, 70’s blazer and red trousers, 70’s floral dress, 70’s mint green short dress, 80’s shirt and trousers.

1950’s prom dress, blazer and skirt.

Window displays will be going up on a Friday evening and all pieces will be on sale the following Saturday.

Xx

    Love the outfits and so sad to hear of what the high street stores may well be doing! That’s awful! Thanks for the photos. Wish I was there to buy a few of those pieces!
