New! Scarlet Vintage and Retro Shop Needs You!

We will be opening a new shop in the centre of Harlow in October 2018, and we need lots of enthusiastic volunteers to join the team!


Scarlet Vintage & Retro is going to be our first-ever specialist vintage shop, home to a hand-picked selection of vintage clothing and accessories dating back to the 90s and earlier, amongst other retro-style wearables, collectables and homeware.


If you have a passion for all things kooky and quirky, or just want to meet new people, or learn new skills we’d love to invite you to come and volunteer in Scarlet Vintage & Retro. You can come along for just a few hours a week, and you’ll also enjoy the satisfaction of helping your local hospice.
