More than just about shops, this is a life philosophy - a collaboration of people's ideas, beliefs and values.
Mary's Living & Giving Shops for Save the Children were established in 2009 from a philosophy created for Save the Children by retail expert, Mary Portas. But they go much deeper than just shopping.
Run by local people for local people, and filled with amazing donations from from the local community, as well as fabulous luxury pieces from generous retailers and brands, these charity boutiques are a collaboration of people’s ideas, values and beliefs.
They are community hubs. They are where you can come to find inspiration, share a bit of local news, a skill, the time of day.
Every item donated or sold through our shops is used to fund the vital work we do at Save the Children. At a time when global brands, shopping centres and the internet play an ever-increasing role in our lives, we offer a revolutionary antidote – a human and ethical shopping experience.
What could be more ethical than saving children's lives as you shop?
We are shopping with heart and soul. We are living and giving.
