The Big House Sale

Finding out we were expecting twins was the biggest shock of our lives, (sorry children if you read this one day) but it was also something we were totally unprepared for. Our house is lovely but not quite big enough for four, our cars are fantastic but only three door so not suitable for baby seats and also we hadn’t really saved given we weren’t particularly planning one let alone two littles making their way into our world.

Whilst sorting stuff for our impending house move, I started to realise I have a lot of beautiful stuff that I either no longer use or have never used and that other people could probably give a really nice new home to. From beautiful designer handbags and shoes to stunning design and blogging books, throughout my twenties I’ve collated a collection of really pretty things that sit on my shelves that are now just taking up room for baby things. So I’ve put my sensible head on and decided to sell it ALL…

It would take years to ebay though and I’d need a couple of lorries to head to a car boot with everything! Plus I like having friendly folk round for a cuppa and cake… so consider this your invitation to my big house sale, where you can literally buy anything you see (including my house and car – no joke). On the afternoon of Saturday April 15th my front door will be open (well at least to those who rsvp) and while I put the kettle on, you can have a nosey in each of my rooms which I’m transforming into mini shops. By this point the majority of my belongings will be at our new home so you don’t need to feel worried about that and if it doesn’t have a price on it, feel free to make me an offer. I’m the queen of bartering when I’m out shopping so feel free to haggle.

My little house is based in Bowburn in Durham and is easily accessible by car or public transport. Obviously I can’t have a complete open door so if you’d like to come along and bring a friend or two, please rsvp by clicking here. The full address will be emailed out once you rsvp.

To give you an idea, here’s just some of the things that will be available: Mulberry Handbags, Michael Kors, Links of London, various designer and high street shoes (pregnancy makes your feet grow – no one tells you this), apply mac laptop, iphone, unused make up and toiletries, vintage scarves, accessories, all my wedding decorations, homeware, design books, fashion books, blogging books, furniture (even my sofa is up for grabs), polaroid camera and film, moleskine notebooks, other stationery and notebooks, candles, and lots lots more.

Hopefully see you on April 15th – don’t forget to rsvp! x

    This is such a brilliant idea. If I'm at home I'll pop along if that's ok?! Katie x
