Dublin: 11 °C Tuesday 28 September, 2021

There's a charity shop crawl on in Dublin this weekend if you're after a cheap wardrobe injection

How to shop ’til you drop, without breaking the bank.

FANCY A WARDROBE injection, but the January pinch isn’t making it possible? Perhaps you’ve committed to a more sustainable lifestyle for 2019? (Good on you, if so.)

Charity shops are a clear cut example of the saying “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure”, in more ways then one. As people partake in January spring cleans, shops are flooded with unworn gems with the tags still on them, as well as the odd dud/family heirloom/wearable time capsule.

If you’ve always fancied being one of those people who can reply to compliments on their outfits with “thanks – charity shop!” but have no idea where to start, following Sustainable Fashion Dublin on Instagram is a good place to begin.

Geraldine Carton and Taz Kelleher – the brains behind the venture – will be bringing alteration classes to the masses, as well as organising sustainability talks under the banner.

Before any of that, they’re hosting a charity shop crawl this Saturday (12 January) from Capel Street to Smithfield following the success of their pre-Christmas outing. It’s an ideal little outing if you’ve got a case of January-itus and you’re trying to do as much good as possible, for as little money as possible, while staying off the drink. 

Tickets cost €11 and it should take about two hours, give or take. There’ll be tea and chats at the end too, doubling as an opportunity to show off your haul.

The Dublin Charity Shop Crawl #2 takes place on 11 January at 12pm. You can purchase tickets here.
