Change the way you shop with The Renaissance Boutique

With rising concern around the impact of fast fashion on our environment, The Renaissance Boutique has harnessed the growing trend of purchasing sustainable, pre-loved designer wear and accessories with aplomb, and have brought them to Alnwick (and online). 

Hand-selecting all of their items from their developing network of suppliers, you can be assured of the quality of your purchase – and that this quality will feel better, look better and last so much longer than your lower-end high street picks. Best of all, The Renaissance Boutique make sure these new, or nearly new, premium products are available at a fraction of their retail price, meaning they offer their customers large savings as well as a safe, convenient and sustainable way of shopping. 

Normal Opening Times:

Tuesday–Thursday, 11.00am-5.00pm
