Finding Bargains In Charity Shops

Finding bargains in charity shops in Jávea

Jávea is famous for its beautiful beaches, 15 magnificent viewpoints, gorgeous weather and restaurants. However, there is another fabulous reason to live in Jávea – its charity shops. You can even pick up designer clothes and bags at some of the charity shops in Jávea at exceedingly low prices.

Great reasons to shop in charity stores:

  • You’re helping to raise much-needed funds for a good cause
  • The prices are very low
  • You’re helping the environment by reusing and upcycling secondhand goods

VillaMia has compiled a list of the seven charity shops in Jávea – starting with our favourite.

The Cancer Care Boutique

Designer labels and quality premium women’s clothes, bags, jewellery, shoes and boots at knockdown prices. It’s always a delight to see what’s on the rails in this shop. Everything looks new – except for the price! It’s a fab way to get a quality coat or clothes at distinctly secondhand prices.

If you own quality clothes and are ready to trade them in, you can take them to the Cancer Care Boutique to sell. You get 50% of the asking price and 50% is donated to Cancer Care.

The Cancer Care Boutique is in Avinguda de Paris, 8B, Jávea Park

Open: Monday – Saturday, 10.00 – 13.00

Phone: 965796846


The Cancer Care Shop

Cancer Care’s other charity shop takes men’s and women’s clothing, bedding, bric-a-brac, small household items and small electrical items. Again, great bargains can be found, particularly if you’re looking for small items to furnish a new home in Jávea or a holiday let. The clothes are great value and in top condition.

MABS charity shop, Jávea

MABS charity shop is in Jávea Park too, so you can visit all three on your bargain treasure hunt. MABS is also a great place to look for clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery, bric-a-brac, books and furniture. English books are expensive in Spain, so secondhand books are a fantastic find. If you have larger items to donate or are buying big, heavy items from the shops, MABS can deliver too.
