Junk Shop was founded in 2005 with the aim of providing sustainable and affordable clothing.
To Quote their website:
Our clothes span a range of styles worn from sunrise to sunset by Ravers, Dreamers, Schemers, Urban Hippies, Eco-Warriors, Sci-Fi Queens and Vintage Vixens alike and are now Oxfams No.1 selling Sustainable Fashion Label.
I guess that pretty much covers us all then! They sell at retail fairs and tradeshows and also have a shop in Manchester and a small online shop. Their Manchester shop has been lovingly furnished completely using recycled or reclaimed materials from the suspended spindle shelving to a remoulded fairy liquid bottle counter and walk in wardrobe changing rooms.
Their current collection has a definite retro feel to it with cute Peter Pan collar necklaces and fifties style fit and flare dresses. There is also a great selection of jewellery including a pocket watch necklace and teapot necklace in antique brass. With prices for a dress starting at £28 and £14 for a necklace, this is probably one of the most affordable sustainable fashion brands I have come across.
If you want to have a go at making your own recycled fashion, they also run a number of courses including dressmaking and sustainable fashion.
With warmest wishes
