Oxfam London Reviews


Excellent shop and helpful staff - I've volunteered here on and off for over a year and find it a really good place to be. There are lots of ancillary events ( book quiz, book group, visits from Daleks etc) and it has a fast changing and vibrant selection of stock.
The bootom line is making money for Oxfam - thus books cant stay static on shelves unbought and must be moved on.
THe music section is unparalleled. All LPs are individually checked and sorted before being out out. There is a good atmosphere and it's very well run.

An axe to grind? - I too am a regular customer at Oxfam Crouch End and having read Albert's review I can't help but wonder what personal axe he has to grind.

In Albert's world it would seem that the £17M that Oxfam raised in this country alone last year to help fight poverty throughout the world is actually a secondary concern to an organisation who he feels are mandated to keep the destitute in poverty. I'm not sure that view will be shared by many and it immediately calls into question the fairness of Albert's other comments.

I have never found any of the staff at the store to be anything other than helpful, a comment I would extend to charity shop workers in general.

Perhaps if we all send our donations straight to Albert in future and he can cherry pick whatever items he wants before sending on the dross to the charity shop of his choice.

Great shop! - I am a regular shopper at the Oxfam bookshop in Crouch End, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the the shop is well stocked with books in great condition, and reasonably priced.

There is also a good range of Fair Trade gift items, as well as Fair Trade food.
