  • Bday Countdown Insta LI

    Located in the heart of Newcastle city centre, Re-styled by St Oswald’s Hospice is a new generation charity shop, offering unique upcycled furniture, crafts and homewares, with each piece as unique as you! Whether you’re looking for a vintage dressing table, quirky sideboard or a one-of-a-kind wardrobe, the ever-changing collections are not to be missed!

    Before being upcycled by the shop’s skilled team, each item of furniture began its creative journey as a generous donation to the Hospice. Using a range of effects, tools and products, pieces are transformed from ‘pre-loved’ to ‘re-loved’, often using the easy-to-use, environmentally-friendly Sarah Jayne Signature Chalk Paint. The stunning 31 colour palette is also stocked in store.

    Alongside the beautiful repurposed creations, is a wide selection of crafts and locally-sourced artisan products, including handmade wreaths, cards, candles, tin can models and much more. Retro and vintage style products such as funky vinyl record players and telephones are also available for customers to browse for gift inspiration or simply to treat themselves!

    And if you’re feeling creative or would like to try a ‘do-it-yourself’ workshop, the shop team holds a variety of in-store craft events and demonstrations where customers can join in to develop their skills and create their own masterpieces. Anyone can do it!

    To stay informed of upcoming workshops, product news and a preview of the upcycling process behind-the-scenes, find Re-styled by St Oswald’s Hospice on Facebook and Instagram to join its community of #northeastupcyclers.

    To truly experience the collections of upcycled treasures at this innovative concept store - the first-of-its-kind for St Oswald’s Hospice - we recommend customers take the opportunity to visit the boutique, which is open Thursday to Saturday 09.00 – 16.30. An ideal destination for those interested in quirky, original home décor and sustainable goods, a must see is the shabby chic shop till - a repurposed piano, which is instrumental in representing the one-off pieces to be had.
