Oh, The Custard Factory; this area of Digbeth wins my heart every time I pass by, and this weekend is no different. For those of you who care for another kind of love (like retail), The Custard Factory is playing to your consumerist heart.
Frankly, my eyes light up when I hear the word 'sale', and the wiley ones behind the Custard Factory Vintage Kilo Sale, have won my heart. Yep, you heard right: Vintage Kilo Sale.
Invest of buying throwaway fashion, which is generally of a low quality, why not invest in pieces which have been sewn, stitched, and crafted with love? Instead of one piece, buy a kilo's worth of garments and they'll price it up at £15. At £15 per kilo you can buy an awful lot, so instead of £30, or even £45 for one single item, you can enjoy a kilo's worth of coveted goodies. Could this be more wonderful?
To enjoy this one-time Digbeth exclusive, get to The Custard Factory between 11am and 4pm on 15th February, and be prepared to elbow for the item of your desire. I reccommend getting there early to avoid the rush, but either way you'll be making a saving, and enjoy a bag full of goodies. Hello new wardrobe.
The idea of bagging a new wardrobe in one shopping journey is too wonderful to pass up, bring your cash, plastic not required.
