East London secondhand shop guide

The Queen Mary Fashion Society have created a guide to all the best vintage and charity shops in east London to help highlight a great way to limit the environmental impact of your clothing choices while exploring the local area.


This guide can be referred back to whenever it’s needed. It was created to make students aware of the local shops on offer, and encourage support for local businesses and the environment. By purchasing secondhand clothing, you are supporting the development of a circular economy. Thrifting remains the best way to source unique and individual fashion for cheap, while stirring away from the wasteful and exploitive nature of fast fashion.
