Just two weeks to go until my first event at the Wantage Summer Festival. I’ll be in the Shaw Trust on 2nd July, please do let me know if you are coming along. I’ve been shopping at Shaw Trust this week and I’ll blog my finds tomorrow … vintage prints and bold colours, bargains galore!

My plan for the event is to start by sharing my thoughts on why I think 2nd hand clothes have such an important place in ethical fashion and clear conscience dressing. I’ll also be talking about what I look out for when searching the rails of a charity shop before we all have a rummage together, find some pieces and share some upcycling ideas.

Do you have any questions ….. ? If you’re interested in 2nd hand shopping but feel a bit overwhelmed by the prospect of rummaging the rails or if you have any particular questions, do let me know in advance of the event so that I can tailor the session to the people coming.  Contact me on Facebook or email or if you see me in the street, stop for a chat.

Upcycling to come ..

Do do you remember those items from Save the Children? I’ve had a lovely week of sewing and now have a new tie front shirt and have almost finished my upcycle of the gold skirt. I’ll blog the finished outfit this week.

I’m planning to try the Dr Noki treatment on the blue t-shirt this week also.
