Pick Up A Bargain & Help Ferne Animal Sanctuary!
With the cost of everything increasing, buying secondhand is great for your wallet but it is also great for the environment.
By visiting one of our fabulous charity shops you can save a lot of money and find beautiful and unique items, with no chance of turning up at a Christmas party in the same outfit as someone else. It is also an environmentally friendly practice and a great way to make fashion more sustainable.
The fashion industry is responsible for a huge consumption of water, energy, and natural resources, so can be very costly to the environment when no sustainable materials or renewable resources are used. Buying secondhand has a big positive social and environmental impact. It reduces carbon emissions, save resources, water, and energy and prevents old clothing from ending up in landfills.
So, if you’re looking for a new Christmas jumper, outfit for a Christmas get-together or a unique Secret Santa gift why not give secondhand a go!
We have three shops in Somerset (Chard, Crewkerne and Ilminster), and one in Honiton, Devon, all of which are run by a band of fantastic staff and volunteers. Each shop has a wide variety of interesting knick knacks, books, clothes and more. 100% of the proceeds from our charity shop sales goes towards helping keep Ferne Animal Sanctuary running.
Donations are welcomed at all our charity shops – when you donate items, if you are a UK tax payer you can opt into a gift aid scheme. This costs you nothing and lets us collect 25% more whenever we sell something that you donated!
