The Oxfam Curiosity Shop: Celebrity auction
A selection of A-list stars has joined Oxfam and Selfridges to create, set-up, stock and staff Britain’s biggest charity pop-up shop.
Funds raised by the shop will be supporting Oxfam’s women’s projects across the world including in Bangladesh, India, Sri Lanka, Democratic Republic of Congo, West Africa and South Africa. These projects protect, support and empower vulnerable women, campaigning against violence, empowering them to fight HIV and AIDS, and offering the poorest girls the chance of education.
As well as the items that will be on sale donated by Annie Lennox, several items are also being offered for sale via eBay. So here’s your chance to own one of Annie’s necklaces, and a dress she wore a the Black White Ball with Alicia Keys.
Annie Lennox’s Crystal Necklace
An incredible, vintage crystal necklace donated to Oxfam by Annie Lennox. Measures approximately 16 inches in length. The chain consists of square cut crystals, with two loops on each setting and one free loop connection. Has a ring clasp fastening, with what we believe to be ‘Germany’ written in tiny writing. The front of the necklace has an elegant 3, 2, 1 triangle drop formation. Is made of clear and silver coloured metal and crystals. This vintage necklace is in excellent condition and comes in a lovely, black velour presentation jewellery box. A superb collector’s piece. This item was kindly donated to Oxfam by Annie Lennox.
