Using a small but dedicated workforce based in Nottingham.
We have handmade some really beautiful clothing. It really has to be seen to be believed. These garments will have your friends all asking where you got them from. So take a look and grab yourself a bargain as we aren’t sure how long these clothes will last at these low prices for the amount of effort that was put into making them.
We’ll be adding some more soon – so keep an eye out.
This year the scandinavians, and in particular Sweden, are hosting the annual smorgasbord of everything musical; from kitsch to camp to just downright weird. Still, we celebrate ‘vive la difference!’ (not sure what the Swedish translation is).
Fifty seven glorious years and hopefully many more to come. Good luck Bonnie Tyler!
Ahoy mateys! Greetings from the good ship Funky Kitsch.
Those of you good folks who have already subscribed to our newsletter will already know that we’ve had a bit of a facelift on the old website. You will also know that we’re having a sale on some of our funky scandinavian and German fabrics AND, we’re about to launch the first of our special offers this weekend. Shhhhh. I’m sworn to secrecy by the gnomes but I can tell you it’s well worth keeping your eyes peeled. If you haven’t already signed up for our newsletter then you can do so by just filling in your e-mail on the right.
Shop news is that we’re already expanding our current range of eclectic gifts for both children and adults alike. We’ve got some lovely things from Blafre, Lapin & me, Tee and Toast, Twisted Twee to name but a few. As you can see from the pics we’re finally getting organised (almost). The big comfy sofa is going to a new home so there should be more room to cram in yet more (yes MORE) stuff.
Fabric news is that new stuff is on it’s way from over the water in Sweden to us here in sunny Manchester. Loads more fabulous eye popping prints arriving just in time for spring. I also have the addition of two fantastic ladies who make up for me so turn around for custom orders is at warp speed. I’m focusing more on the handmade projects that are in the pipeline. Again, all will be revealed in the next newsletter.
And finally, I am spreading my wings even further and will be in attendance at Altrincham Vintage Market this month. You can find me there on Sunday 17th February. It’s located on Greenwood Street, Altrincham and is open from 11.30 until 3.30 pm.
We’d like to say a happy new year to all of our fabulous customers and a hello, bienvenue, wellkommen and bonjour to our new customers *big wave*
Keeping you in the loop of what has been happening at FKHQ, we’re moving units at Traders Outlet in Sale. We’ve already outgrown the one we have (after only 7 weeks!) so we’re putting castors on everything and settling in to our new place in the new year. There’s also going to be a huge overhaul of the website with more stock being added so that more will be available to buy online as well as offline in the physical store.
We’ll also be asking you, dear reader, to send in any suggestions of things you would like to see in the shop and in particular, what items you would like tos see being made up out of our funky fabrics.
Of course it goes without saying that New Year brings new stock and boy, we have some corkers for you. Lots of Swedish organic fabrics that are either GOTS or OEKOTEX certified. Many of you will be thrilled to learn that the Summer fabric from Znok will be featuring and we will be taking pre-orders on this as there were many disappointed customers when we ran out of it. It will be landing during January and will be availabe in half metres as well as fully metres. £9.95 and £19.89 respectively. You may also love to know that this time it’s organic. Woop! Drop me an email if you would like to reserve this fabric as it sells out FAST!
There have been many highlights this year business wise and we’re looking forward to expanding even further in 2013. Of course we couldn’t do it without you guys out there. On that note, we’d like to wish a very happy new year to you and yours.
We’ve been busy beavering away on the first line of clothing. It’s nearly ready and will be online for perusal this coming weekend (subject to weather and temperamental models).
Whilst ensconsed in our very own little sweatshop of 2 (me and Dawn), I’ve found that music gets me through the day. I was thinking that when I do my first tute, it will be entitled ‘Sew Along with the Backstreet Boys’. I know Dawn will cry when she sees that – and not with laughter.
So, brand FK is ready to hit you guys between the eyes. The question is; are you ready?
