Oxfam Books & Music Totnes

Welcome to Totnes Oxfam Shop. Our shop is to be found in The Narrows; an historic part of Totnes town and has become a 'must visit' place for locals and visitors alike. Through the generosity of our local community, the volunteers in the shop, and the world-wide selling community of we have raised tens of thousands of pounds for Oxfam, and in the process developed a reputation for maximising the value of our donations; particularly specialist subject books and classical vinyl. We have many years of experience with online shopping, having a small and friendly group of volunteers specialising in this area, who have a reputation for excellent customer service.
