Here you can expect to find an eclectic mix of on-trend designer, vintage and high street brands donated by fashion forward creatives, come find us for sustainable high quality pre-loved bargains.


Sustainability at SCT

The fashion industry has become the second largest polluter in the world. 

In the UK alone, we throw away 350,000 tons of re-useable clothing every year. That's around 30% of unwanted clothing going straight into landfill.

Our vision at SCT is to offer amazing affordable pre-loved pieces, otherwise destined for landfill, we want to inspire everybody to shop second-hand, while raising money to support those who come to us for help and our local communities.

By shopping second-hand we can all help to break the fast fashion cycle and reduce the devastating impact it has on people & our planet. Reduce -  Reuse - Recycle

Reusing and recovering

We’ve had a presence on high streets across East London for over 25 years  

Since then, we’ve re-homed thousands of items kindly donated to us and re-housed hundreds of people in our community. 

At SCT, we are passionate about restoration and everybody having access to the best opportunities in life. We believe that everyone deserves a second chance at finding happiness, and your clothes do too.
