Boutique By Shelter

Boutique By ShelterBoutique by Shelter has landed in Barnes! Shelter’s boutique line of charity shops has been designed by fashion designer Wayne Hemingway and his team. The boutiques sell designer, high-end high street and one-off finds at fabulous prices, to help fight homelessness and bad housing.

Wayne Hemingway, founder of Hemingway Design, said “The aim was to design a new store format for one of the UK’s most impactful charities that is thrifty, that upcycles existing fittings, is repeatable and brings to the fore Shelter’s evocative photography archive and messaging.”

Boutique By ShelterShelter is calling on the stylish people of Barnes to go and browse the exciting selection of stock, and to donate any pre-loved clothing, footwear, accessories, media or household items. They’re also asking for volunteers to help run the shop – a fantastic opportunity for local people to learn new skills, meet people in the community and have fun whilst doing something worthwhile with their spare time. Volunteers also have the chance to gain an NVQ in retail skills, team leadership and customer service, and can volunteer as little or as much as they like to fit around their lifestyle.

Boutique By ShelterBy shopping, donating or volunteering at Boutique by Shelter you are helping to fund Shelter’s vital work giving advice and legal support to families facing homelessness. In London alone, a family loses their home every 28 minutes, and more than 120,000 children are homeless across Britain.

Shop Manager Isabelle Marks said “Behind the charming and stylish exterior, important work is going on inside the shop by a team of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and skills to help raise money for Shelter to fight poor housing and stamp out homelessness. Each and every volunteer makes an important contribution to team work in that they each have their unique skills and interests. Collectively our volunteers represent all that defines Shelter; passion, dedication, and hands-on support.”
