Oxfam at Selfridges?
The Oxfam Curiosity Shoppe opened its doors today at Selfridges, to big queues we're told, full of shoppers eager for a one-of-a-kind Oxfam bargain. Big names including Annie Lennox have donated some of their personal belongings to the sale, which Oxfam hopes as ever will fund their continuing fight against poverty in Africa. Nice to see a little social conscience at work. And well done Selfridges, luring in the shoppers who might not otherwise set foot in an Oxfam! We eyed some lovely books (Turkish Self Taught Conversational Grammar, for those trips to the barber), Bob Dylan records, and a lovely set of jugs, if you must know. Shoppe open until May 20.
