Pick Up A Bargain & Help Ferne Animal Sanctuary!

With the cost of everything increasing, buying secondhand is great choice for both your wallet and the environment.

By visiting one of our fabulous charity shops, you save a lot of money whilst finding beautiful and unique items. In addition, it’s 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. Furthermore, it can be very costly to the environment when no sustainable materials or renewable resources are used. You can make a big positive social and environmental impact by buying secondhand. After all, it reduces carbon emissions, save resources, water, and energy and prevents old clothing from ending up in landfills. Even the smallest changes can make a big impact!

Our Shops

We have five shops in Somerset (Chard, Crewkerne, Wellington, Ilminster and Yeovil), in addition to two in Devon (Honiton and Sidmouth) that you can visit. These are all run by a band of fantastic staff and volunteers. Nevertheless, we’re always happy to have extra help and would love to hear from you if you’re interested in volunteering in a shop! Click here to find out more.

Additionally, each of our shops have 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 and ensuring we can be there for animals in need.

Quality, resalable 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!
