On April 29th, the Barking Mad Charity Dress Sale will be making a comeback in Braceborough Village Hall near Stamford from 4-8pm. Last year my close friend Sarah Milne and I raised over £2000 for Three Counties Dog Rescue at the inaugural event which was opened by TV presenter Catherine Gee.
After numerous requests we’ve decided to squeeze the event in our busy schedule (doing our bit for Charity) and hope you can join us.
We hope that you like our new YouTube advert featuring a speaking labrador called Margo! This year we have an actress opening the doors so read on…
We all have a few clothes in our wardrobe which hardly get worn, and this is a chance to donate your pre loved frocks to our charity dress event.
Sponsored by Country Living Magazine Fairs, it is a boutique experience with a buzzing atmosphere, good quality clothes at a bargain price, delicious refreshments, with free entry and parking. This year we are delighted that Karen Westwood is opening our event and the actress has appeared on Spooks, Dr Who and Monarch of the Glen to name a few.
Last year many people picked up bargains including a few designer finds like a Reiss Dress for £8, Armani Jeans for £5 and a Jaeger Jacket for £15.
We priced items low to sell, and offered a complimentary gift wrapping service with purchases wrapped in scented tissue.
Clients loved the shopping experience and stayed to enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea for under £5. It was a huge success with so much support, with customers even coming from Yorkshire and Buckinghamshire to snap up bargains.
With the event only a couple of months away, we are asking for any High Street pre loved ladies clothes to be donated. These can be dropped off at the following locations or collected locally nearer the time.
We are also looking for more drop off points within Lincolnshire so please let us know if you can help and we will gladly promote you in return!.
Bracebridge Heath: The Haberdashery Closet
Lincoln (Central): Frankeys Estate Agents
Lincoln (Bailgate): Yvonne Bell at Bailgate Hair and Beauty
