Tatty Devine is a store that, for me, epitomises British style and design. It’s eccentricity is equal to it’s beauty, and with every item being handmade in London you know you’re supporting local businesses in the name of rocking some awesome jewellery. I have a few pieces from them already and they are the stand out pieces in my accessories collection. So when the chance of a sample sale came up, I was extremely excited to get some bargains. I completely underestimated how popular the sale would be; when I turned up at 12.30pm the queue was already around the corner from the Brick Lane store. Luckily I had taken my Kindle with me, and the lovely fans of Tatty Devine made for some wonderful queue buddies, supplying me with water and a famous Brick Lane Beigel!
When the time came for me to go in (it was a one in/one out situation), I headed straight to the back where I’d been tipped off by the staff that some of the amazing eyelash sunglasses were still sat. My hands were actually shaking when I grabbed a pair, I’ve wanted them forever and couldn’t believe I was getting them for a quarter of the price!
I may have gone slightly overboard with what I got, the bargains were just too much to ignore. I managed to nab the beautiful La Luna necklace which I’ve had my eye on for a while, plus a necklace from the planetary collection and an enormous leaf necklace which is mental but let’s face it, necessary.
Yes, I queued for near on three hours, but there were still so many bargains to be found and the staff were all so friendly and helpful. I’ll definitely be heading down again next year, but this time I’ll be there at 9am with the intention of being one of the first to dig around.
Did you manage to get to the sample sale? Let me know what you managed to get if you went down!
