The Oxfam Festival Shop is a treasure trove of fashion and we wanted to know what items the amazing shop volunteers would want to take home. 

They get a first-hand peek at the clothes before sorting and putting out in the festival shop  - so who better to ask?

Pyrrha works in the Oxfam Cheltenham shop and picked out this Laura Ashley jumper. She said: "This is my favourite from the shop so far. Love the vintage Laura Ashley, love the shape of the sleeves and love the dark colour patterns."

Becky is manager of the Oxfam Southport shop, she chose this pretty flower patterned dress. She said: "I love the heart shaped buttons  - makes it a more quirky design."

Oxfam shop volunteer Paidraig works in our Blandford shop, he went for a practical option and chose a hoodie. He said: "It looks like it would be really warm and suits the cold weather today!"

Oxfam's Lorraine showed her flamboyant side and chose a leopard print fake fur coat. She said: "I've got one just like it at home!" (a girl after our own heart)

Claire from Oxfam Eastbourne discovered a beautifully vibrant duffel jacket whilst on shift at the Oxfam Festival Shop. She said: "I love duffels,  this will go nicely with my collection. If its good enough for paddington bear its good enough for me!'

Isobel from the Rochester Oxfam shop chose this dark green Duffel coat - obviously a hit with the shop team for 2013. She said: "I just think it looks good and it's really warm wearing it."

Oxfam shop volunteer Ben selected his ideal festival fashion item a staple, warm jumper. He said: "I've had my eye on this one for a while. Perfect festival wear, great for all round festival weather."

Festival volunteer Rob is one of Oxfam Fashion's faves! We love his quirky and individual style. He chose a camouflage jacket and said: "I wear jackets like this to most festivals and it's great to see lots of it in the shop. I can't wait to see the Stone Roses this weekend  - obviously wearing my jacket!"

Oxfam's Gregg chose some green trousers - he'd already bought them and was more than happy to strike a pose for team fash outside the Oxfam Festival Shop!

Oxfam's Crispin had bought this hoodie before we even had a chance to ask what his fave piece was. He said: "I was cold and the hoodie was warm." We love a direct shopper!

Festival Shop manager Lisa went for a coat with an amazing cut and coloured thread running through it. She said: "It's practical for working in the shop but not restrictive." Fashionistas take note  - Lisa knows her stuff, we'll all be in these jackets soon.

Team fash loved James' fashion bravery - he said if he had to choose anything from the shop he'd have this sequin hat. Somehow, we think he might have been joking... but in his words: "I just love sequins, I'm a slave to fashion." We're all totally #teamjames!

Festival Shop deputy manager Fran always has the quirkiest clothes and the best coloured hair so we love to hear what fashion she is into. She spotted this black bag with some Koi carp on the front and being a DIY fashion lover turned it into a bum bag. #gofran!
