Sniff out labels at new Dogs Trust charity shop
Dogs Trust has opened a new boutique charity shop in Brighton, offering hand-picked vintage and secondhand designer goods in a stylish industrial store.
The St James Street shop is the first concept store for the charity, which runs 28 charity shops across the country, with bespoke fixtures including light fittings made from dog bowls and an outdoors-in theme that runs from woodland wallpaper, through the concrete floor to wooden rails.
The flagship store opened its doors on Thursday 13 October, with bargains such as Levi jeans, Christian Dior earrings, a Vera Wang dress and Aquascutum coats up for grabs among vintage clothing, accessories and homewares.
“Brighton is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city which attracts a large number of fashion-savvy visitors and residents”, says Katy Warren, Dogs Trust charity shop area manager: “There are so many amazing and interesting places to shop in the city, so we thought it would be the perfect place for this exciting new venture.”
“The shop is designed to show that second hand isn’t second best, when it comes to clothes or the thousands of abandoned rescue dogs awaiting loving homes in the care of Dogs Trust.
Dogs Trust are encouraging shoppers who sniff out treats from the store, ranging from just £4 to £50, to tag photos with @dogstrust on Instagram and @dogstrustshops on Twitter, using the hashtag #secondhandnotsecondbest.
