I thought it might be a good idea to post about the up coming destash I’m hosting on Instagram this Saturday 27th May, 2017. I hope you will join me and grab a few bargains.
Where is the sale?
On Instagram – please follow Champagne_Twist_Destash
What time does the destash sale start?
12 noon GMT
Why host a sale?
I have accumulated so much stuff over the years, I have simply run out of room to work effectively. The choice is to either move to a new house the size of Buckingham Palace (I did ask, but the Queen said no) or to sell these things to a someone who can make use of them.
This will mean that I will have more time and space to make more videos and post more on my blog.
What type of things are you selling?
You’re selling baby clothes? How come?
In regards to the baby clothes, they are all brand new and unused. They were purchased for research purposes (I was thinking about designing and selling baby clothes) and rather than throw them away, I thought it best to sell them on. There is a bit of a pink theme, but heck at that age babies don’t know, or care.
All buttons (and any relevant small items) sold will be sorted and presented in a brand new organza bag – who wants an envelope of loose buttons?
What’s for sale? How much?
Prices start from as little as 50p (excluding postage). All the items range from bargain basement finds to high end, including products from local London markets, Laura Ashley, Cath Kidston, John Lewis and Liberty.
I hope you will find this sale fun and you bag a few bargains for yourself and loved ones. Tell your friends, sit down with a cuppa and lets do this 🙂
I know T&Cs are not the most interesting of things, but please do read before you purchase – and let me know if you have any questions.
The sale on Instagram starts at 12 noon GMT Saturday 27th May 2017.

Refashion Project – The Daisy Duchess Dress
Today, I wore for the first time my new Big Birdie skirt, which I renamed the Birdie Skirt. Yes it is May, and corduroy season is well and truly over, but it has ben so cold recent. So instead of saving the skirt for Autumn, I gave it a test run. I must say I really like it, it very comfortable, and thanks to my bias binding hem, it’s not too short. I will be looking out for more designs from Clothkits.
Here’s a review of the skirt I made: review.
The video below is also an update on the lining I added to the kit –
