Pop-Up Shops for YHA Day
Following the huge success of the YHA Lost Property Charity Pop-Up Shop at YHA London St Paul’s for the last two years, YHA (England & Wales) has decided to create more pop-up shops throughout England and Wales. For just two days – September 5th and 6th 2015 – YHAs nationwide will be showcasing some of the best lost property ever left behind! Last year guests were seen leaving the pop-up shops with complete bargains on designer gear including a pair of Raybans, a Nikon camera (perfect for bloggers!) and even a MacBook!
These fabulous fashion pop-up shops come as part of YHA Day, where the organisation opens their doors to the local community to thank them for their support over the past year and to introduce YHA to a new audience.
Clothes, jewellery and the most random of random belongings left behind by guests throughout the last year or kindly donated by travellers who over-shopped on the high streets and had to leave some of their belongings behind will be available at the YHA pop-up shops to the discerning customer.
Vintage, pre-loved and second-hand clothes are great for giving you a distinctly different look and every piece tells a story – you never know who might have left something behind! From designer threads to homemade garments, you’ll definitely find something to suit your trend tastes here. Some pop-up shops are also showcasing some local student designers so you may be able to pick up an original piece from the next Vivienne Westwood or Karl Lagerfeld!
With YHA believing strongly in good old fashioned charity shop prices, it’s a fantastic chance to grab an absolute bargain! Prices start from as little as 50p and it’s a great opportunity to get a peek inside some of YHA’s most beautiful buildings including the Rowntree house at York and YHA London St Paul’s which was once a boarding school for the choir boys at St Paul’s Cathedral.
All money raised on the day goes directly to YHA’s charity, Breaks for Kids, which gives bursaries to children from financially disadvantaged backgrounds when they take part in a school or community group break – allowing them to experience the great outdoors and a variety of adventures that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to. YHA believes in providing opportunities for everyone. So you definitely won’t feel guilty for spending!
