Designer Thrift Shop Set to Sell Prada, Dior, Lacroix

MaryPortas_2A thrift shop devoted only to high-end designer wear is opening soon in Edinburgh, Scotland. Its racks, we read in the Sunday Mail, will be studded with Prada, Dior and Christian Lacroix.

Currently being designed with the help of British TV personality Mary Portas, aka “Mary Queen of Shops,” the
Save The Children boutique is set to open in September, and “will have stock donated by designers, celebrities and top retailers.” Portas (depicted above) helped launch a charity shop in London earlier this year, and her fame has been bringing much-needed money to the Save the Children charity as well as long-overdue dignity to the British secondhand-shopping scene.

“Among the treasure trove is a Nicole Farhi dress originally worth £400, Russell and Bromley biker boots which cost £325 and a Swarovski watch which sold new at £120.

“Interest in the store is growing by the day and Save The Children bosses expect a stampede when it opens.”

Portas says she hopes it will “redefine charity shops,” and that “its real success will be defined by the extent to which it changes the way people in Edinburgh shop. We want to create a real buzz, something unique.”

And: “Stock for the shop will be of the highest calibre and the store itself will have the feel of a fancy and contemporary designer boutique….

“The bargains in the new store will be second to none. I imagine people from all over Scotland will be flocking to Edinburgh to snap up deals at the poshest charity shop in Britain.”
