We have a dedicated bridal suite within the Oxfam's Southampton shop, with good quality fashionable bridal wear and accessories, new and second-hand, usually with a choice of over 200 dresses. Many of our beautiful wedding dresses can be taken home on the day. We also have another suite with a range of bridesmaid dresses, groom outfits, veils and lots of other wedding accessories. Selected bridal items are available to order online.
Trying your first wedding gown is by appointment only by booking here. During one hour of a free appointment, you will have our stylist volunteer to help you choose and try the dresses on. Usually you have time to try 5-6 dresses, but if there's time you can try as many as you like. Please help us to maintain our dresses in a good condition for other brides to try. You can wear make-up, but we will provide you with a face cover to prevent transferring the make-up to
our dresses. The appointment will be on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 10 to 3.
In the main shop, we sell good quality clothes, books and homewares. We also stock greetings cards and a range of 'green' products.
Oxfam shops are always delighted to accept donations of quality undamaged items that you no longer want. Our shop teams are trained to make as much money as possible from your generosity to fund Oxfam's poverty busting work around the world. Items that sell particularly well are current fashion trends, quality paperback fiction and all accessories. And Oxfam is unique in that any textiles that are not sold via our shops are sent to our Wastesaver recycling plant to ensure we make as much money as possible from your generosity.
Volunteering with us is a challenging and rewarding experience. We have lots of opportunities and are always on the look out for passionate people to lend a hand.
