Working with Helen & Douglas House

Throughout 2017 I have been working with the lovely team at Helen & Douglas House charity to help promote their charity shop in Newbury.  It's one of my favourites!  Together we have produced a series of videos of me styling one of my lovely clients in the shops - and the amazing bargains we found!!  At the moment, a competition is running to win a copy of my book In the Jumble when you share a photo of treasure you've found at Helen & Douglas House charity shops using the hashtag #foundathdh.

To see the video's or join the competition, find Helen & Douglas House on twitter or facebook.

My book In the Jumble launched at the end of 2016.  If you’ve never even considered shopping second hand before, this book is a perfect first step on that delightful journey.
