If you're worried about giving all your money to large clothes retailers with questionable ethics, or you simply want a more eclectic shopping experience (or wardrobe!) then head away from Queen St and the shopping centres, and check out our handy guide to Oxford's charity and vintage clothes shops.

We also have a guide to shopping for delicious shoes. What is it about shoes? Why does one never have enough? Why are the really lovely ones always the first to disintegrate?
