#VintageFriday for Oxfam

#VintageFriday is coming next week - but wait... what is that I hear you cry? Isn't every day is a vintage day for Lesley's Girls.  Well yes we know, but next Friday is a bit different.

Dawn O'Porter's new book This Old Thing, is a vintage handbook based on her Channel 4 show., and following the successful series and the book Dawn has teamed up with Oxfam to get vintage lovers old and new to help raise money for Oxfam, well enjoying your vintage wardrobe at the same time (it's a win-win situation!)

Rock your favourite vintage outfit or accessory for #vintagefriday and donate £3* to Oxfam by texting Vintage to 70066, helping to transform lives around the world. Share as many of your pictures on Facebook and Twitter with the hash tag #vintagefriday.  If you share them with us at Lesley's Girls Vintage and The Secret Vintage Fair well then we'll also help make the impact of #vintagefriday as great as possible for Oxfam and those they support. 

*Messages will be charged at £3, plus one standard rate message. By texting consent is given to future marketing by Oxfam. To unsubscribe from SMS send NOINFO to 70066
We're taking part in vintage Friday... who's joining us?!
But there is more too... if you want to help Oxfam raise more money whilst celebrating vintage clothing, then host a DIY vintage swap shop from next Monday. Oxfam are calling upon the public to hold their own #ThisOldThing vintage sale. Rally friends or colleagues together to do a closet clear out - be it at work, university or your front room. There are no set prices, buyers can donate what they think the item is worth. All the profits and any items left over can be donated to Oxfam to help fight poverty around the world.  Although Lesley's Girls don't have the time to host our own sale, let us know if you are hosting one locally and we'll help promote it and we will donate some pieces to the cause - so please get in touch at

You can get Dawn O'Porter's book here and learn more about Oxfam's project on their blog here
