Save on style this summer

England is heating up and as the seasons change, so does the style! If you’ve ever found yourself staring at your wardrobe, with no idea what to wear, you’ve probably come to the conclusion it’s time to invest in some new clothes. However, shopping for clothes can be expensive. We all know how it is; we pick up a few things and before we know it, we’ve spent way more than we planned to! Well that’s why we’re here to help you and show you how to have your dream summer wardrobe, whilst saving on the cost and supporting your local hospice.

Our clearance shop located on Magdalen Street, Colchester, is home to a large collection of clothing, amongst other items, that are priced at £1- that’s right £1! The clothing, although mainly previously worn, remains in good condition with a wide variety of sizes and styles to suit everybody.

The shop has recently taken on a project of creating outfits for an affordable cost, so we went to visit to share the amazing finds with you.
