Clothes sale on the 16th June in aid of charity - can you come?

Wednesday, June 13, 2018

I've delayed posting my second London feature today to invite you instead to a charity event on Saturday, that's this Saturday, 16th June between 10am and 4pm in Brancaster Staithe Village Hall, Norfolk.

A good friend of mine, Kathryn Gigg, had invited me along too to help, but unfortunately my busy life has just overtaken the event. I have however donated many items of clothing to be sold on the day, including some fabulous designer pieces as well as brands like Phase Eight and Monsoon. There will be lots more besides, and I do urge you to treat yourself to a lovely day out where you can browse the rails to maybe find something special from the collections of day and evening wear.


The contents of these three boxes were my stockpile for some magical day when I'd have plenty of time to iron, photograph and upload them onto eBay. But I've at last realised that I'm too time challenged, and always will be if I carry on like this. Time is money they say and I just can't afford to give my valuable time over to such a labour intensive task for goodness knows what return. So instead, I've sent these off with Kate when she visited Tresco last month and they are being sorted as we speak ready for this huge charity event. 

If you are within striking distance of Brancaster Straithe on Saturday and fancy browsing through the boutique style rails then do please read on to find out more. The all day shopping opportunity which has been organised by Alex Ware of Spaciallyaware will also offer a French style cafe for your refreshment needs. The eaterie is being run by Alex's other business, Norfolk Concierge.




If you do manage to go along, please say Hi to Kate who will, I'm sure be playing a major role in making the day a happy and successful one.




This was a shot from an early morning dip on the island the last time she was across - she may be dressed a bit more soberly for the fundraiser, but I'm confident that you'll recognise her from that wonderful smile. Have a great day Kate, Alex and all the team of helpers. I wish you the best of luck!

    1. The great thing about dejunking at this kind of level Mary, is the huge sense of relief and liberation from the dreaded chore which was totally unachievable. I can't remember a single thing that I sent off which is a true indication of my need to get rid. Hurrah!

      Hugs to you too, my dear!

  2. Oh my goodness Anna, I wish Brancaster was a bit nearer. It's our second nearest beach; the first being Hunstanton about 70 to 80 miles from me!

    I hope the sale is a roaring success and lots of money is made for a very good cause.

    1. It's crazy how far apart Kate and I live and neither place is exactly accessible is it? I too, hope the day is a resounding success.

  3. You know I would go to that! Sounds like a blast! I often get asked why I don't consign some of my great pieces, but you are so right: it's a huge amount of time and hassle for very little return! I'd rather give things away and see them on my friends and coworkers, or know that they went to a good home. Everything else gets donated to charity - I love to think that someone will be really excited to find one of my old treasures.

    1. Life is just too short to spend time on that reselling palaver. You have the right idea to pass them on to friends - it's good that they go to a happy home. I'm pleased that my clothes will help make some cash for the charity too.

  4. I wish I could attend! I think you've made a good choice to forego consignment especially during your busy time of year at the gallery!!
