Having been out of London and due to the school holidays not having to go to Camden every day it’s been two weeks since I had a wander around the area. Yesterday I had to head over to Camden to run errands and I popped into the local charity shops - Sue Ryder on Parkway and Traid on Camden High Street.
These are my favorite two haunts when I’m in Camden. They are very different Traid tends to get new stock in directly after their sale (once a month give or take a day or two) they then too it up as and when pieces come in daily. I find the best things directly after the sale ends. Sue Ryder on the other hand puts new pieces out daily, although I find the ‘vintage’ section tends to be topped up twice a week. So having been away I was happy to find a 1940s wedding dress, a cream silk 1970s maxi dress (I may or may not dye it…) and an Indian embroidered tunic which I will turn into a dress. All three pieces came to £36.
So if you find yourself in the area and you have time to mooch my two top Camden charity shops are Traid and Sue Ryder.
