Oxfam Bookshop St Giles

Situated in the heart of the city, many of our volunteers, donors, and customers are part of the thriving University community, so we have a wide selection of academic and foreign language books. Our two-storey shop on St Giles in Oxford was the first Oxfam bookshop; Sir John Mortimer came to open it officially in 1987, and returned two decades later to celebrate our 21st birthday.

Donations welcome

Oxfam shops are always delighted to accept donations of quality undamaged items that you no longer want. Alongside our industry leading recycling partner CTR, Oxfam has its unique recycling plant where any textiles that are not sold in our shops are sent for recycling, helping reduce the amount of clothes that go to landfill.

You can now donate clothes by post - for free!

The easy way to donate clothing and accessories from home. Order your mailbag and return it to us for free to help raise money to fight poverty and reduce landfill.
