About our store

Full of fabulous brands, from Whistles and Monsoon to Ted Baker, this gem of a charity shop is the tenth permanent Living & Giving Shop to open since Mary Portas gifted the philosophy to Save the Children back in 2009.

The shop was designed in partnership with the prestigious Royal College of Art, Ab Rogers and up-and-coming design talent Skoon, who produced what can only be described as ‘a retail delight’.

Hand-crafted wooden boxes display coveted items, bringing order to the traditional chaos of the charity shop. Matching wooden floorboards have been brought back to life and handwritten notes add the personal touch, telling the story of each item for sale.

Mary Portas says: “I may have moved but I'll be back for the opening of my Little Venice Living & Giving Shop. I am so excited as there is a brilliant community already there. Keep those donations coming!”

Paul Hunwick, Acting Head of Mary’s Living & Giving said:

“Our shops are social hubs; people come in for some retail therapy and leave having saved a child’s life, so thank you for all of your support. We regularly have new stock donated, so do pop in for some feel good shopping.”
