To make room for all the new stock that’s winging it’s way to us, we’re giving the you the opportunity to bag yourself a bargain in our clearance department. Clothing, accessories, toys and fabric are all included.
Can this day get any better you may ask yourself? Well no. We hear on the grapevine that the cult tv series from the 1970s, The Clangers, is being resurrected and will be on our screens in 2015 thanks to CBBC. I can feel a batch of blue string soup being made. In the meantime, you can read all about it here.
Our summer dresses are now touring the South of France.
We have the bambi dress on the left which is now out of stock sadly and on the right is the sweet days dress.
We think every day should be a sweet day – we won’t tell your dentist as long as you brush twice a day.
The dress ia also available in 5 other materials – but don’t be shy – if you are really desperate for us to make you a bespoke dress then go ahead and check out the other jersey fabrics available. Just contact us – we are most obliging!
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.
Some of the eagle eyed amongst you will already know that we’ve acquired new premises for our actual physical shop. Yep, a real one with shelves and real people and everything.
After a lick of paint last week (eye popping raspberry) and some funky decals to go on the walls, we’re almost ready to wow the good people of Cheshire (darling) with our take on funky wares for the small people. It’s all been positive so far (from fellow traders and passing customers) both with comments on the design of the shop and the fact we’ll be doing something a bit different.
If you are passing by Sale or Altrincham then swing by and say hello. You can find us at Traders Outlet on Tatton Road, Sale (by the Town Hall). We officially open to trade on Monday 12th November.
….and you’ll find them all here at Funky Kitsch. Our new swoonable clothing range has been born. They are ridiculously easy to wear and care for. Adaptable to dress up or down and, due to the fact that we source only the best quality fabric and the most ethical where possible, will last for ages. It’s win/win.
The eagle-eyed amongst you will notice that we include this paragraph at the bottom of each garment page and if you haven’t noticed it yet, then you can read it now.
“Here at Funky Kitsch HQ we like to keep things fresh and new. Our lines of clothing for boys and girls are either one off creations or limited runs. Once the fabric stash has left the building, then we shall have more new and exciting stuff on the way to take it’s place. By constantly changing our fabric designs, we know you’ll never have that embarrassing situation of turning up at a party with someone else wearing the same outfit. No Siree. You will be (almost) unique.”
In general we make sizes for ages 1-5 but if you would like something bigger (or smaller), just drop us a line and we’ll be more than happy to accomodate requests.
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?
The new dresses are now in production. I’ll be putting pics up as the week goes on with different designs. The first of the collection is the ‘Iris’ dress. It’s available in this design in any of the 100% cotton designs we have in stock.
