Bargains galore for your Big Day

Beautiful wedding dresses and accessories at bargain prices are on sale at an Eaton charity shop’s new bridal department.

The PACT shop, in Eaton Road, offers a range of pre-loved outfits for that special day in its wedding and prom department.

It opened in July and is crammed full of wedding dresses, veils, shoes, hats, fascinators, jewellery, menswear and flower girl, bridesmaid or prom dresses.

They have all been generously donated to the shop and are available at a fraction of the price of brand new items.

Shop manager Sarah Reynolds said: “I am genuinely shocked and overwhelmed by the beautiful items that have been donated for our bridal department.

“When customers come in, they are often amazed at what they see – not just in our bridal section but in all areas of our charity shop.

“I would just like to say thank you to all our donors and customers for their continued support.”

People can try on the outfits in the shop and a local dry cleaner, who does alterations, has offered to assist with fittings. Each wedding dress comes with a bridal bag for safe storage.

The dress being modelled by Sarah’s daughter Bethany Blake is currently on sale for £275 including the veil. It is a fitted dress, with a tight-beaded bodice, floaty skirt, beaded detail and a short train.

The shop, which raises money for the PACT Animal Sanctuary, is open Tuesdays to Saturdays, 9.30am to 4.30pm. If you have a wedding dress to donate, Sarah will collect it within a 10-mile radius of Eaton. Please call (01603) 456590 and ask for Sarah.
