Charity Shopping with a Twist.

Last night I headed to my first event of 2015 and it didn't disappoint. The event was held at Goodstock in Manchester, which was celebrating the launch of it's new, and first ever, store opening. To give a brief description of the store, it's a charity shop that has done all the sifting through for you and only display pretty and good condition stock. The shop is set over three floors in the heart of Manchester's University district on Oxford Road, which in my opinion couldn't have been placed better. The layout of the store is super quirky, sort of warehouse style and is the opposite of any charity shop I've been in before.

The event was super busy and I really enjoyed myself and looking through the stock. Bloggers were given a 'bloggers challenge' in which we had to pick some pieces to style from the range for under £20. It was a pretty hard decision but I ended up coming home with a super chunky grey jumper originally from Zara (£9) and a burnt orange cardigan originally from Cos (£11). 

If you love the idea of charity shops but hate rummaging through all the stock, Goodstock is the place to go - they've done all the hard work for you. And best of all, not only do you get a unique shopping experience, you're also helping out a great charity - Vinspired. Vinspried helps young people get into work by offering them experience, training and volunteering opportunities, a fantastic cause if you ask me.
