Boutique by Shelter, Coal Drops Yard
This is not your average charity shop.
With a handpicked range of unique donations and a bespoke interior by HemingwayDesign, our new flagship boutique store offers a shopping experience like no other.
Coal Drops Yard was once the power hub of Victorian London. Its arches piled high with coals from the north, this King's Cross industrial centre sparked life into the city. Reimagined in 2018 by architect Thomas Heatherwick, Coal Drops Yard is set to become one of the most iconic and imaginative spaces in London.
In this inspiring setting, Boutique by Shelter will offer designer, vintage and quality high-street clothing, all at a fraction of the original price.
- Raises vital funds to fight homelessness
- Offers flexible volunteering opportunities to the local community
- Is the perfect place to uncover vintage and designer treasures
We'd love your donations
If you have any quality items you no longer need, please consider donating them to us. Every donation raises money for our vital work — the better the quality, the more we can raise.
We gladly accept donations when we are open, occasionally including small items of furniture. Please don't leave items outside the door when we are closed.
