A KEEN secondhand shopper is on a mission to find the best place to bag a bargain – and may have found a strong contender if you’re after cut-price designer shoes.
Heidi Ondrak, known online as @duchessofthrift, encouraged her followers to head to the Monkeyshu store in Aldridge, West Midlands, after regularly finding bargain accessories there.
The fashion fan claimed they sell returns and extra stock from stores such as Kurt Geiger, Dune, Reiss and Ted Baker at massively discounted prices.
In a new TikTok reel, she said: “Right, today I have come to another one of my little gems.
“It’s thrift, but it’s not charity. So it’s dead stock from lots of big shoe retailers like Kurt Gieger, Dune, Moda In Pelle.
“And they’re shop returns, they’re sort of palettes of seconds etc, and it’s called Moneyshu.”

“They’ve got tonnes and tonnes of men's as well.
“Loads of kids' school shoes which is really handy.”

Someone else put: “Been going here for years. It’s proper hit-and-miss as a lot of the shoes can be really worn. Can get some bargains but do not expect brand new!”
Heidi replied: “It looked like the bags were new today, I've got a feeling that it was stock from the House of Frasers that are closing.”
