Charity shop, Christmas, England, Hobbs, Kensington, London, Paris, Travel and Tourism
Over the Christmas holidays my mum and I went to London and Paris. One of my favourite days was spent just wandering around Kensington (where we were staying in London).
We came across a cool little op shop called FARA Charity Shops. The website says that “in 2009 it was ranked by the Sunday Times Style magazine as one of the top charity shops in London”.
Mum found a practically brand new pair of Ecco shoes for £5. I found a gorgeous pair of Hobbs heels for £47. A similar pair of Hobbs heels I found online were £180 brand new.
The shop was gorgeous with a lot of quality stuff, the staff were lovely and I would highly recommend a visit next time you’re in London.
Do you have a favourite charity shop that you go to? Please tell us about it. We love to hear about new and exiting places 🙂
Take care, until next time…keep restyling!
