SHOPPERS were treated to a groovy weekend when a charity shop stepped back in time to the 1950s, 60s and 70s.
Oxfam in Ealing Broadway turned all floral and fabulous at its three day Fab and Orange event this weekend where retro clothing and bric and brac from the iconic periods were on sale.
Staff began hoarding items from the outlandish decades since November in the hope of attracting more customers, while volunteers dressed up in 1970s outfits to greet shoppers on Saturday.
And their hard work paid off after takings almost doubled to more than £4,800 across Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Deputy manager Josette Zammit-Mangion said: “The shop was heaving. People were enjoying themselves and everyone commented on how great the shop looked.
“In November we were given lots of orange and brown 70s stuff and we went from there and began saving the items.
“We always raise more when we have an event, it’s good for the volunteers to have something to work for and it’s fun.”
The shop held a Steampunk event in October and hopes to run another one later this summer, but the theme is yet to be decided.
