queue went all cheap ralph lauren the way past the doors

Miss thrifty golden mile of designer treasures My first stop is is
oxfam vintage where i meet samantha mcgarry, the store manager.Samantha
leads me directly to a back room.It is chaos. Bags upon more bags,
boxes, more boxes, but as i begin to look closer my eyes begin to soften
at the treasure trove in which i now stand. Quite simply, i am in dress
heaven.A gorgeous red silk coast dress sits untidily next to a pair of
yellow and black nike basketball trainers and just as i put down a
slightly marked grey top hat, a vision of beauty comes to me in the form
of a sleek, cream, merino wool skirt.I pick it up, run my hands over
the fold and the hem, check the pleats and take look at the label.I've
no idea exactly who lady laura is, but i'm sorry she no longer makes
skirts. Recent donations to oxfam have included a vera wang wedding
dress and six bags of catwalk fresh goodies from irish couturier richard
lewis. I could see that for me at least, a day of charity chic was
about to be a little more expensive than i had anticipated. Most of the
shoppers here are as you'd find anywhere on any high street but as i
look for something to team with my new skirt i come across vicki and
ellen andrew, who are, even to an untrained eye, far from novices when
it comes to charity chic. The first thing i notice is they don't
rummage.Behind a stylish pair of square rimmed glasses, ellen's eyes do
the work and her hands move decisively.Ellen andrew seems to know
clothes, and neither she or her daughter vicki see charity shopping as
being something furtive. "I buy selectively.Not everything is good but
occasionally i'll come across something that really works.I bought a
little black dress here a while ago, it cost me 5 and its been my best
find.I've worn it over and over again. " I slowly work my way up camden
street and onto the rathmines rd.I see bags by galliano, shoes by gucci,
a ysl dress and a very ralphlaurenpoloshirts
crisp blouse by ralph lauren.I have also seen film memorabilia in the
shape of the exact jacket worn by colin meany in the film into the west
and it occurs to me there's a lot more to this than i had first
imagined.If you come with an open mind you might not find what you need,
but you'll certainly find what you didn't know you needed. With limited
numbers of volunteer staff in charity shops, many of the best items go
into the window and are sold at fortnightly intervals.At the barnado's
on lower rathmines rd, a recent donation of crystal drew such a crowd
that the queue went all cheap ralph lauren
the way past the doors of local rivals oxfam. My last stop of the day,
the cancer research society store on lower rathmines rd, is a paradise
for bargain hunters.My eyes light up at the sight of a six foot high
treasure chest of vintage clothing and retro items. Recently, a louis
vuitton bag was handed in by one wellheeled benefactor.Stock also comes
directly from boutiques and high street brands like urban outfitters.
