Brighten up your Autumn-Winter wardrobe with hidden designer gems at Horfield shopAugust 28th, 2014
Stocking the latest trends, colour palettes and fabrics the St Peter’s Hospice shop on Gloucester Road often surprises shoppers with what is on offer.
Pre-loved items from French Connection, Topshop, Austin Reed and Christian Dior can often be found on the rails of a St Peter’s Hospice shop, confirming that charity chic is alive and well.
From stylish jumpers and coats to winter boots and handbags shoppers are spoilt for choice. And there’s something for the boys too with suits, shoes and accessories all in store at less than half the price of most retailers.
“Our shop on Gloucester Road has some really fabulous Winterwear in stock. It’s always great to see new people coming into the store, as well as our regular customers.”
“There are lots of St Peter’s shops all over Bristol and because we are so localised we love to get to know all of our customers and really become part of the community.”
“The quality of stock that comes through our doors is wonderful and we often sell designer brands for less than half the original price. There’s always hidden gems to be found and some items even have the tags on still!”
As Bristol’s only adult hospice, St Peter’s Hospice cares for more than 2,670 patients each year as well as supporting family members. All services are provided free of charge but this care costs around £18,000 a day. For around £14,000 of that, the hospice relies on gifts in wills, kind donations and funds generated by the hospice shops. St Peter’s Hospice shops can also be found in the city centre, Bedminster, Filton and across Bristol.
Debbie continued: “Of course we wouldn’t have the wonderful things to sell if it weren’t for the kind donations from our supporters.”
