Today I’ve found out some great news that I simply must share with you all – the Oxfam Online Shop Spring Sale starts today! More specifically it starts at 12 noon and you really have to ‘be there’ at midday to get the bargains because each item is unique – they have been donated after all – so it’s unlikely that you’ll find a duplicate item and once it’s gone, IT’S GONE!
I got an amazing bargain in the Oxfam Fashion sale last year – my favourite pair of lace-up Doc Marten boots. They were practically new and were a fraction of the price of new DM boots. I’d been searching for a pair for weeks and had found that they were out of my price range – even second-hand boots on Ebay were too spendy for me. So I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this lovely pair in the Oxfam Online sale. Luckily they were in my size (so jammy!) so I snapped them up and was pretty chuffed that I was giving my hard-earned cash to charity rather than a store. They were delivered quickly and I was so pleased with them when they arrived; what a bargain!
I don’t want to disappoint you by saying that you too will find a perfect pair of Doc Martens in your size during this sale, but what I want to share is the fact that this is charity shopping at it best: in front of a computer, during your lunchbreak, getting a unique bargain and donating to a great cause. So make sure you’ve clicked onto the Oxfam Online Shop at midday and prepare yourself for a thorough rummage through the fashion archives to get yourself a deal. There will be 50% off Oxfam’s already very reasonable prices and they have divided their stock into size, type and even vintage fashion, so if you’re into genuine retro gear you’ll be able to track it down easily and snap up your bargain quickly!
I know I’ll be sat here at my computer waiting for the sale to open at midday today and I’ll be trying to find a pretty dress to wear for a friend’s wedding! Let me know how you get on and please share your sale bargains with me – leave me a comment below or send me a tweet @Cassiefairy.
