The frockers would like to wish all our customers, friends and readers a very happy new year and we hope that 2018 will bring you health, happiness and good fortune.
Lang may yer lum reek2017 has been another successful year for the Frockery and we have thoroughly enjoyed finding appreciative new homes for so many preloved items from down the decades. We have also endured a few headaches, including yet another trade mark infringement, but we count ourselves lucky to have survived intact in what have been challenging times for so many small businesses.
Nearly eleven years after starting this wee (ad)venture, slow fashion has become increasingly mainstream, and second-hand is now first choice for conscientious consumers. It makes sound economical and ecological sense to eschew fast fashion in favour of unique vintage finds, hand-made pieces and contemporary classics at a fraction of their original cost. For us, much of the thrill is in the chase and we love to showcase our treasures and send them on their way to their new owners.
As the new year begins, we are once again encouraging readers to adopt and share our Top 10 Eco-Fashion Re-Solutions for the coming year. We also have our eighth annual Frockery Eco-fsahion challenge coming up in February, so why not resolve to join us in vaunting the vintage, rocking the retro and celebrating the second hand?
