Designer clothes and accessories from labels such as Prada, Armani and Alexander McQueen will be on offer at an Edinburgh charity shop sale.

Collectable items such as Steiff Teddy Bears, a 1950s picnic hamper and a pink sporran are also on sale at Shelter Scotland's Morningside shop on Friday.

All funds raised from the annual sale will go towards the Shelter Scotland free national helpline.

The helpline supports people dealing with bad housing and homelessness.

The items have all been recently donated to the Shelter Scotland shop, which is known for offering designer brands.

Shop manager Allison Granham said: "We have a long-standing reputation for offering some of the best quality second hand designer goods in the city and our January event certainly won't disappoint.

"We have some impressive items on sale and are looking forward to welcoming eager shoppers looking for real bargains.

"This is our third new year event and we hope to raise as much money as possible to support Shelter Scotland's work to help people struggling with bad housing and homelessness."

The sale opens at 10:00 on Friday at the shop in Morningside Road.

A similar event was held at the charity's Stockbridge shop in the city yesterday, and raised £2,000 in the first hour.
