Canterbury Love : Frocks n Stock

Posted on 03/10/2012

I was really excited when I first heard about Frocks n Stock, The Pilgrims Hospice all Vintage, Designer Retro charity shop in Margate. So of course I went to investigate straight away. I imagine my delight when I found out that the hospice would be opening another Frocks n Stock, on my doorstep in Canterbury.

The new shop is wonderful, its large, light and bright and has been meticulous organized and beautifully arranged to show off all the fabulous treasures you can find there. My favourite spot in the shop has got to be the haberdashery room, a whole room filled with vintage fabrics, buttons and sewing paraphernalia!

The Pilgrims hospice is a Kent based charity, so the money spent in the shop goes back into helping the local community. Also 80p out of every £1 spent in the shop goes directly to patient care at the Hospice, so you know exactly where you money is going.

Here are a few photos of my favourite goodies from the shop. They have everything from typewriters to teddies, including a great selection of hard to find menswear, fantastic old magazines, and some stunning suitcases.
