Basically, we have a lot of clothes we want to sell but eBay drives us mad. And we know a lot of you are the same. So we thought it would be cool to connect all the WIWTers with nice things that they would sell on eBay but can't be arsed to take a zillion photos/spend half their life at the post office/wrestle with idiot buyers over Paypal discrepancies. We're gonna host a jumble sale!
It's gonna be like the jumble sales you loved rummaging around at in your local school hall in the 90s, but we're calling it a 'Humble Sale' because we're raising money for charidee in the process. And instead of selling crap, we're hoping the WIWT boys and girls will have some pretty fash-tastic things for sale. We've heard peeps are planning to sell everything from Primark to Prada, H&M to Hermes, so we shall see!
The Humble Sale will be taking place across the weekend of the 21st and 22nd of April at Space Fifty Four at WIWT HQ (that's in Shoreditch, London). We will be raising money for The British Heart Foundation
You can register to sell here, it will cost you a tenner (£10.90 with Eventbrite handling fee) and you keep all the money you make, so the amount you can make really depends on how much you have to sell!
You are welcome to sell womenswear items, fashion accessories, beauty products, cakes and other foodie goods. No kids clothes, please. The buyers coming will be from the WIWT community - which means you'll be predominantly selling to fashion savvy young females. If you wanna sell menswear though, we know there'll be stylish boys floating about too :)
Register here for tickets to come and shop - there'll be some AMAZING bargains. By registering in advance you'll be able to jump the queue to get to those bargains first! You can of course just turn up on the day without registering, but whatever you do you'll need to donate a minimum of £2 to The British Heart Foundation to get in :) We'll have collection buckets on the door, so feel free to bring aaaaaaaall your loose change to support The BHF's life saving work.
We would LOVE for you to donate a prize for our big raffle. We're going to be selling raffle tickets all weekend and every penny will go The British Heart Foundation. The BHF will be selling raffle tickets online too so anyone can play, even if they can't get down to The Humble Sale themselves! Please email if you can donate a prize, we'll be eternally grateful.
There'll be more information available shortly, but mark your diaries now and register for your selling slot now if that's what you wanna do!
