A few months after its opening in Notting Hill, children’s charity store Fara Kids still has a great selection of clothing, from “new vintage” at very affordable prices, to rare pieces. Great visual merchandising, cherry on the cake. I found a 50’s flamenco dress costume as well as a turn of the century white lace cotton dress in pretty good condition. And if you are a bit sentimental about the clothes your children outgrew, it is also the place to drop them. You are sure they are going to be treated with lots of TLC.
