Oxfam Dress Event 21st April 2018

DON'T DITCH THE DRESS - Even if it's less-than-perfect. Hand it in to Oxfam instead!

On Saturday, April 21st Oxfam will be holding a Pop-Store at St Ethelwolds House, East St Helens Street from 11.30 till 4.00 pm

This will be offering prom dresses and ball gowns as well as bridal, wedding and beach wear. But we need more gowns, dressy dresses and mother-of-the bride outfits to hats, fascinators and pashminas.  So if you have something tucked away in the wardrobe, why not hand it in to us and let us give it a second life and the chance to be re-loved by someone else? Even if it's slightly damaged - we have magic helpers who can deal with the odd tear, dropped hem, lost button or stain.  And remember, if you bring something in for this, do let us know when you drop it in so we can thank you. You'll find the Oxfam Shop at 29-31 Stert Street, Abingdon. Or you can contact Debbie, the Manager by emailing oxfamshopf3723@oxfam.org.uk or ring 01235 528592

 ADOPT-A-DRESS Your needlework skills could give it the chance of a second life!
On Saturday, April 21st Oxfam will be holding a Pop-Store at St Ethelwolds House, 30 East St Helens Street, Abingdon from 11.30 till 4.00 pm. This will be offering prom dresses and ball gowns as well as bridal, wedding and beach wear. But we need more gowns, dressy dresses and mother-of-the bride outfits too along with hats, fascinators, jewellery and pashminas. 

We will have some pre-loved dresses that have been donated to Oxfam but which may need a little light mending, altering and up-cycling. So we're looking for some people with the needlework skills and ingenuity to help us with this. Could you perhaps 'adopt-a-dress' and do some of this work for us? Do get in touch if so. Or if you have something tucked away in the wardrobe that you aren't going to wear again but could fit the 'Ballgowns, Bridal and Beachwear' theme, why not hand it in to us and let us give it a second life and the chance to be re-loved by someone else? You'll find the Oxfam Shop at 29-31 Stert Street, Abingdon. Or you can contact Debbie, the Manager by emailing oxfamshopf3723@oxfam.org.uk or ring 01235 528592
