Read all editions below.

Edition 6

We love the creativity of our contributors in this edition! We are delighted to introduce the Winchester School of Art project, where we
showcase some of their students’ stunning creations and interviewed Faye James to find out more about her inspiration – see pages 8-9.

Our colleague Sabine is a huge advocate for sustainable shopping, so we invited her to show us ‘a sustainable way of shopping in your 20s’ on
pages 10-11. We are also delving more into the second-hand shopping online movement as we chat about our eBay shop on page 14.

This edition, we are also bringing you DIY gift ideas and decluttering tips as well. We found a great way to reuse items bought from charity shops in the form of gift baskets! They look very stylish and are a sustainable and budget friendly way to gift. We spoke with influencer @ms.rachelboo who visited our Bristol donation centre and she gave us some decluttering tips that we are sharing with you on page 12.

Check out two of our regular features Ask Us and Our Customers Love… find out what our team members like about their day-to-day work on page 3 and see what our customers bought from our charity shops on page 4.

There has never been a better time to reuse and restyle than now and this edition is packed full of incredible inspiration.

This  edition, we are in love with Kayleen Kelly’s three-second declutter rule – read more on page 12. We are inspired by two fashion
influencers (charityshopgirlcsg and thankfifi) on pages 6 and 10.

Also, find out how we created high-fashion from everyday donations to our clothing banks on pages 8 – 9. Our aim is to show you more
ways to reuse, repurpose and restyle! Not only is it better for the environment, it’s better for your pocket.

As always, we love to bring you fashion ideas and share the stunning items our customers discover in our shops, read more on pages 4 – 5.

Edition 3

This time, we focus on the essence of our
magazine: developing a more sustainable lifestyle and sharing great ideas on how we can all achieve that.

We share some clever reuse
ideas (page 6) and very useful advice on transforming bric-a-brac (page 7). And we have a couple of friends with a very important
sustainable message we thought you might like to meet – see our Editor’s Pick on page 11.

What’s more, in this edition, fashion students from Winchester School of Art and the University of Northampton showcase their creativity by transforming secondhand items into designer wear – we are amazed
with the results. Have a look at pages 8 and 9.

Edition 2

One of the best things about charity shops is you never know what you will find, so you can go shopping with a creative idea in your mind, or you can be inspired by the unique array of items available in store.

In this edition we share lots of ideas to inspire you! Read about the things our customers love on page 4; or learn about the new trend, a
timeless wardrobe, on page 9.

Do you want to learn how to upcycle furniture or create a bedroom design using only home decor from charity shops?

Have a look at pages 7 and 8. In need of a book recommendation? Our editor shares her favourite books written by black authors on page 10.
