beachwear section ready to go out and, by the time you read this, they’ll have installed their ‘through-the-ages’ Bath in Fashion window display. A fashion-led charity shop, they’re also


renowned for their bookshop downstairs – “especially popular with the men”– which is home to a properly categorised selection of non-fi ction and fi ction, from classics such as Austen and Dickens to Graham Greene, Kazuo Ishiguro, Sebastian Faulks, Margaret Atwood to Maeve Binchy. You’ll fi nd Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management and Mr Oliver’s latest as well as children’s books, signed editions and rare antiquarian books. Of course, there’s the serious side


too. The money they raise here, and in Julian House’s other three shops – in Shaftesbury Road, Oldfi eld Park, Frome and Chippenham – goes towards the charity’s


aim to eradicate rough sleeping in the city (among other projects). Their 29 beds are full every night, and with the latest stats showing that 20 or more people in Bath are sleeping outside each night, there’s still a lot more work to do. You can help by offering your time by becoming a volunteer for the shop and they’re always looking for donations of good-quality clothing, homewares and vintage stock. If ever there was an opportunity for guilt-


free shopping, this is it. But be warned: with a lovely cream and gold retro gravy boat, serving dish and plate set swooped up and out by one savvy shopper from under my nose, you’ll have to be quick! BL
