ASOS has launched a set of online charity boutiques for you to browse vintage goods on the go. Its ASOS Marketplace platform has partnered with Oxfam Festival Shop, Barnardo’s and Traid, to sell their wares online with 100% of proceeds, going direct to the partner charities.
The Oxfam Festival Shop, which has been a regular pop-up on the festival circuit now has a digital home over the summer. The online store sells a range of vintage band tees, festival-ready crochet two-sets and vibrant outerwear. They announced the collaboration with ASOS via Instagram, check out it below.
Meanwhile, TRAID’s boutique specialises in vintage clothes, shoes and accessories. The charity’s Commercial Director, Enedina Columbano, says “Expect a highly curated collection featuring one-off pieces, limited edition hand-printed tees and 80s, 90s and Y2K gems”.
Describing the process on Instagram, ASOS Marketplace explained “You did a spring clear out and donated a few bags of clothes to charity. Specialist teams rifled through them, and thousands of others, to select the highest quality one-offs. They were cleaned, re-conditioned, photographed and then uploaded on to site for other people to find and treasure all over again“.
According to ASOS’ terms and conditions, customers are entitled to a full refund within 14 days of receiving an order, provided the item is unworn and immediate packaging is received back in the same condition as it was sent. So, if you love vintage clothes but you don’t have the time to look for it in the hidden vintage shop, let’s have a look at the ASOS Marketplace website here.
