75% off Women's Skirts + other lines @ Oxfam Online

Oxfam are currently offering 75% off women's skirts bought through their online charity shop (no mention of a reduction on men's skirts though :p)

Please bare in mind that in most cases these are used goods, although some are new. Condition details are provided for all.

Some good, branded bargains to be found and prices start from just £1.99. Free delivery anywhere in the UK too, although they do ask for a voluntary donation.

Some decent bargains in their other category's too - just picked up 3 pairs of branded men's jeans for less than £40!


EDIT -

Have just discovered that this 75% off sale stretches across most/all departments, not just the ladies skirts. :)

How wide: Second hand items only. Clothing, accessories, books, vinyl, homeware and collectables.

Until: Midnight Weds 18 May 2011

Includes: Sale items include a St Michael black skirt for £1.49 (was £6.99), St Michael men's two piece blue suit for £5.99 (was £24.99) and a baby photo album for 99p (was £4.99).

Exclusions: New products and celebrity donations.

Any mention on their site about what percentage of the money collected goes to the needy , rather than oxfam overheads ? They are operating like a business and competing with other businesses, shops etc, so should have to abide by the same rules e.g. pay their staff the minimum wage.
Walk down your local high street and ask any of the small shops which are still there, how often someone gives them goods to sell without expecting payment,or how often someone volunteers to work for no salary,in order that the owner can take a bit of time to run errands without closing their shop,never mind earn enough to feed their family and have a holiday.
Voted cold until these 'charities' start competing in a fair manner.

"Please bare in mind"

Skirts 75% shorter does indeed bring the word "bare" to mind.

Hehe!

Sorry, it was late. :p

I have enquired about the percentage of revenue which goes to the work of the charity - when I get a reply I'll update the OP.

Yep, Years ago I was trying to rent a new shop in a town in a prominent position, and the estate agent told be not to bother trying, Oxfam was after it and would always offer more rent than me, because they did not have to pay rates, staff etc. I would have been able to employ around 4 or 5 staff on proper wages, but of course Oxfam would not pay anyone, except the fat cats in head office.
It seems unfair they can take over high streets, not letting smaller retailers get a look in, then the city centres turn in to ghost towns, full of charity shops. They should have to pay business rates just like any other retailer. Especially as the likes of Oxfam sell so much brand new stock, they source themselves.
Gone are the days when they used to sell used donated items at cheap prices to help poorer people obtain items they cannot afford.
