Happy New Year and a Fresh Start
Happy New Year and a fresh start!
This week in the shop we’ve been talking about January being a time for reflection and making plans for the year ahead. It’s also a time to clear out some excess and declutter.
This got me thinking about overfull wardrobes and the Tonic Exchange. Signs that indicate it’s time for a wardrobe clear out: It’s full of clothes you don’t wear; you can’t find what you need; it’s so packed with clothes they always come out creased. If this sounds familiar now’s the time to do something about it.
Here’s a few questions to ask yourself when clearing out your wardrobe:
- Do I love it?
- Do I wear it?
- Does it say what I want it to say about me?
- Does it itch?
- Does it fit?
And this is where Tonic might be able to help…
In the first week of February we are running a Tonic Exchange event, we will dedicate a significant part of the shop to the scheme. If you don’t know about the Tonic Exchange allow me to explain, it is a simple concept where you bring your pre-loved clothing into us, we will review the items then agree a selling price with you. After your item is sold you will receive a credit (less a small commission) that will go on your own Tonic account and can be spent at any time.
We’ll accept all good quality clothing as long as it is in good condition and clean (it does not have to have been purchased from us) it does however need to suit the ethos and style of the shop. Over the next 4 weeks we’ll be available to receive your items, inspect them and agree on a selling price with you then get them ready for the event in February.
Let’s start the year by doing something positive for the planet and give those forgotten pieces at the back of the wardrobe another chance at a more fulfilling and happy existence!
For further details come in to see us, email or give us a call. We will be sending out more information in the coming weeks.
We are also open to suggestions, if you have any ideas how we can improve the Exchange we’d love to hear them.
Here’s to new beginnings…
