Longfield participates in the sale of new second-hand clothing in kilos

Are you interested in sustainable clothing purchases? Do you like looking for that special second-hand item in your local thrift store?

Do you think about how much high-quality clothing is thrown away, ends up in the landfill or sits unloved in someone’s wardrobe?

You’ll enjoy Longfield Community Hospice’s first ever pop-up kilo event on Sunday 12 May, taking place from 1pm to 4pm at Stonehouse Community Centre/Laburnum Walk/Laburnum Rd, Stonehouse GL10 2NS.

For those who haven’t yet had the experience of looking for vintage or retro clothing, second-hand clothes from the high street or want to upcycle an outfit, then this is a great event not to be missed. The doors open at 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM. For just €3 per kilo you can look for a completely new style or find items that will breathe new life into your current wardrobe or give a new twist to your styling.

Jo Webster, Longfield’s Retail Area Manager said: “We are really excited to be able to offer our first ever Kilo Sale to shoppers in the Stonehouse area. We provide the bags; All customers have to do is select their items and place them in the bags so we can weigh them. It costs just £3 per kilo and you can buy as much as you want on the day. We will have a wide variety of stock, which we will refresh during the afternoon, so that there is something for everyone.”

There will be no changing facilities available on site so taking a tape measure to check size is something to think about on the day. Shoppers can pay by cash or card at the event and there is no limit to the number of bags you can fill.

Jo added: “Longfield charity shops are an important part of the community, providing local employment, productive volunteering opportunities for a range of age groups and stability for high streets in need. The environmental benefits of reusing and repurposing used items are extremely important. And apart from all these reasons, we all love to look for that special item at a very special price.

“Whether it’s a men’s jacket, new work clothes, a T-shirt or something for a special occasion, we will do our best to help you find the perfect items to suit your needs.”
