Charity Shops in Guernsey

Updated: May 26

Who doesn't love a good rummage in a charity shop!


For such a small Island, we sure do have a lot of charity shops here in Guernsey. But really... who doesn't love a good rummage in a charity shop!


Charity Shops in Guernsey

Buying pre-loved not only saves people money, but it also prevents perfectly usable items from sitting in landfill. Clothing items can be found in all charity shops here in Guernsey. The clothing items available do tend to be more for ladies, but I guess that's because we just buy more in the first place! Charity shops do also stock a range of men's, baby and children's clothing. Most charity shops here in Guernsey even have a changing room where you can try on your new outfit before you take it home. Posh eh!


And it’s not just clothes that can be found in the charity’s shops. Each store is a treasure trove of used books, toys, games, DVDs, video games, and household items. Many items you find in a charity shop are brand new and all are in good condition. A charity shop won't accept any broken or damaged items, and (most) electrical items are tried and tested before arriving on the shop floor. So you can pretty much guarantee that you've just grabbed yourself a bargain!


Donations to Guernsey charity shops

And of course, if you're having a clear out, consider donating your old stuff to a charity shop. It's often a good idea to call the charity shop before you load up your car as sometimes the charity shops can get overwhelmed with donations and they simply don't have the space and storage to take any more donations.


Also, sometimes the charity shops cannot accept particular items as they already have too many. So give them a quick call before you load up the car to check if they're open and if they are happy to accept what you want to donate.


Here's our round-up of the local charity shops here in Guernsey -

The baby section is always stocked with bedding, changing mats, baths, etc... it's a great way to save a few quid when there's a new addition to the family on the way.

The second conservatory which is opposite the main shop and just next door to the children's section is often used for seasonal sales. It's the Christmas shop during November and December and doubles up as the book shop and/ or DVD shop. Although the last time we popped in, there was a large range of jigsaw puzzles.
