Shelter Scotland has opened its first ever boutique charity shop in Glasgow.

Boutique by Shelter Scotland is a new place to shop for style-conscious bargain hunters with designer and brand-name goods on offer.

And its opening offers include a Chloé handbag (pictured above) which retails for over £1,000 selling for £350, alongside a Liberty of London silk scarf designed by Wayne Hemmingway.

The shop also has stock to catch the eye of fashion forward gents with a mint condition Aldo Conti jacket and a beautiful 3 piece Yves Saint Laurent suit.

Also on the rails for ladies are a number of vintage items, including a yellow Weatherwear Glasgow LTD rain coat and a stunning Emporio Armani evening dress.

Adam Lang, Shelter Scotland head of policy and communications, said the shop on Byers Road is an exciting new development and one which the charity hopes brings another way for people to support the charities work with people battling homelessness of housing issues.

He added: “We helped more than half a million people in Scotland last year with practical advice for people in housing need and a range of campaigns aimed at resolving the housing crisis. 

“However, homelessness is far from fixed and we know that more than 5000 children will wake up in temporary accommodation this Christmas because of the shortage of affordable housing.

“It’s as important as ever to keep the work going until there is a home for everyone so I wish this new shop every success in bringing in much needed funds.”
