Designer sale at Shelter shop in Edinburgh raises thousands 1

Early birds rummaged for designer brands including Vivienne Westwood, Hermès, Liberty and Mulberry in the 17th annual sale. One customer snapped up a pair of Jimmy Choo stilettos for £80. The most expensive item was a rare Art Nouveau book signed and illustrated by the Czech graphic artist Alphonse Mucha. It was bought by the first customer through the door, Amanda Comisari, for £500.

Donated collectables ranged from Liberty ties to a 1970s Sindy doll bathroom suite. A portrait of the actor Laurence Olivier by fellow thespian Antony Sher, was yours for £200.

Graeme Sneddon, 57, spent about £50 on classic rock LPs. The marketing director, who lives locally, said: “I come in most weeks and buy vinyl, but they save some of the best ones for this sale.

“I’ve got Hawkwind, Neil Young, The Who, Deep Purple and an album I’ve never seen before by a band called Mountain, but it looked interesting.”

Shop manager Pete Jew said: “This is the biggest day in our year by far and this is the busiest ever.

“It’s exciting shopping because nobody knows what’s for sale until we remove the tissue paper from the window.

“This annual event can only happen because of the generosity of our customers and supporters.”
