£5 Clothing Sample SaleTuesday, July 26, 2016
A while back, a friend of mine shared a 'Clothing Sample Sale' event on Facebook and it immediately caught my eye. I'm all about bargains and as the event stated that there will be new, in-season stock I just had to check it out.
I've now been to the event twice - in May and June. It is held the last Sunday of each month at a storage place. They are selling clothes from all brands - mostly brands sold at ASOS, Urban Outfitters, Topshop and Marks & Spencers. The best part is that everything costs £5, regardless of what the item is - jeans, jackets, coats, cardigans, tops... it really is a shopping paradise! I am such a fashionista so if there is even the tiniest chance that I can get my hands on something before it hits the shops, then I am all in!
A lot of clothes being sold are hung up but there is also a big, long table in the middle of the room piled with stuff. I actually prefer the table - it is fun and much more exciting to dig and stumble across something nice.
I don't want to go overboard so I've decided to bring a maximum of £20 pounds with me each time. So far I have been able to spend it all but I have to admit it has been the best £40 I have spent in a while. I have added 8 new items to my wardrobe - 4 pairs of trousers/jeans and 4 cardigans/jumpers.
Luckily, the next sale is almost here!
