Vintage Clothing is back in style!

According to the BBC News there is a rise of vintage, from fashion to furniture and it is now vintage1very much on trend and back in fashion!

Charity Oxfam launched its vintage section online and saw sales through its website shoot up by 400%.

The service, which allows Oxfam’s 700 shops to post vintage items for sale online, was set up three years ago after the charity noticed more people were typing the word “vintage” into the website’s search box.

Caroline Swarbrick, Oxfam’s trading events manager, said the charity ensured volunteers knew what genuine vintage was and did not label things as vintage if they were just second hand.

Just three weeks ago the website recorded its highest ever sales turning over £4,000 in one week.

The charity even has a vintage shop in Manchester – Oxfam Originals – and boutiques scattered around the UK which sell vintage goods.
