Q2 2022 - Fashion show plans, parking mayhem and expansion.
Moving in to our new double room office made it possible for us to grow what we did. We started to sell more things online, allowing us to take even more items from our first charity partner. We started to take items that needed reparing and cleaning, something very few charities have space, time or volunteers to do.
Plans for that first ever ReDo Fashion became more and more a reality. It was amazing to see the response from people around us when telling them about it. We wanted to bring second hand clothing up to a new level and show the world that second hand is second to none. We felt it was important not to just "preach to the choir" but reach people not already shopping in charity shops. Only then will we start to see real change. Working with Samara, quite possibly the best student Norwich University of The Arts ever had, the plans became clearer day by day.
ReDo Destash made its second appearance and was a success just like the first one, same with our second jumble sale at Thorpe End Village hall proving so popular we had to rope in one of our regular customers to direct the traffic! Behind the scenes we connected with charities and individuals, spreading the word about what we were planning to do. We brought our first pop-up shops to two village fetes and made £247.50 for local charities.
In Q2 we saved over two tonnes from going to landfills and sent out 275 orders through our online sales. Worth mentioning here is that all of our packaging is preloved, donated to us by amazing supporters.
