Pick up some bargains at our Ayr Shelter Scotland shop. Usually stuffed full of finds, no matter whether you're looking for womenswear, menswear, or a new outfit for the little people in your life. We dare you to try and come out without an armful of shopping bags!

You support sustainable fashion by picking up second-hand bargains at your local Shelter Scotland shop.

You can also donate any high quality used items you want to clear out and - if you'd like to - sign up to volunteer in the shop at the same time.
