The children’s charity shops have seen an increased demand for quality, retro dresses, tops, shoes and handbags as well as curtains, knick-knacks and furniture from as far back as the 1950s.

Area business manager Lois Bramley said: ‘The retro look is all the rage at the moment and people come into our shops specifically on the hunt for quality memorabilia.
