Oxfam Charity Shop Bargains

thrifty bargains

I have a rather unhealthy obsession with bargains, so imagine my delight when my local Oxfam became the discount shop! I’ve blogged before about my love for their brand new range, and my shop gets all the fab bits and bobs the other shops are unable to sell. Prices are between 20% and 50% of (not off) the original RRP, which means massive bargains to be had. If you don’t have a store nearby you can order through the Oxfam Website.

Heres what I picked up on a recent visit…

Pack of ten notecards @ £1 instead of £5.99 – perfect for using as kids birthday cards


Monkey backpack @ £2 instead of £12.99


Mini skittles game @ £1 instead of £4.99


Headband/necklace making kit @ £1 instead of £4.99


I also picked up this stunning winter coat by the designer Jil Sander, which is in as new condition and would have cost hundreds, for the measly sum of £7.99. This is probably my best charity shop buy ever, and I’ve had some great coups before!


If I want to stretch my maternity leave out for a whole year, then I need to be as thrifty as I possibly can. Do you have any tips for me?

  1. Brilliant buys – all of them! I love me a good bargain. I was walking past the Phase Eight shop the other day remembering a dress that I should have bought from the charity shop in Sunninghill. I still regret passing that one up! Thank you for linking to PoCoLo x

  2. I came across a brand recently called EcoZone, and they make laundry balls which are filled with pellets lasting over 200 washes (2 for £10). They work as well as any non-bio I’ve used, and at 5p per wash, they are pretty thrifty alternative 🙂

  3. Wow, I’m impressed and that jacket is amazing! We don’t have many charity shops here in Canada, there are many opportunities to find bargains though you just have to have the patience to hunt for them, note to self…must try harder!

  4. I agree, some of them are ridiculously overpriced. The irony of this coat was that it was priced the same as equivalents from Primark! I noticed the quality which is why I picked it up, then recognised the designer as I’d heard of her before…

  5. lovely bargains, I too love charity shops but often find they overprice things, we have one next door to a pound shop and it makes you notice the difference. You certainly have some nice finds thoughs, particularly the jacket.

  6. It’s fun checking out the charity shops for some vintage finds but this is great to know that they have some great bargains to look out for. #pocolo

  7. Oh, I love that jacket. I am completely rubbish at being thrifty. I get so proud of myself for saving then waste a load of money splurging on junk I don’t need 🙁 #PoCoLo

  8. Ooh I love it, we’re a bit fan of bargains in our house too Being a SAHM. Looks like you got some fab deals! #wotw

  9. Oh I LOVE a good charity shop rummage but none of our local ones are any good, I miss living opposite one it Reading.

    I’m trying to be green and thrifty, exploring alternatives to laundry detergent this week!

    Thrifty is a great word! #wotw

  10. Brilliant bargains hon! I must take a leaf out of your book and start going to some charity shops, now I’ve dropped a day at work I’m down about £200 a month which is quite a significant loss. We have loads of charity shops and an outlet M&S in my town so I think I might be inspired by this and pop in there next Tuesday! Watch this space!
