  • Festive frockery offer

    xmas tree

    Overspending at Christmas is always hard to resist as the shops are crammed with temptation and marketing messages are blasted out as relentlessly as Slade’s Merry Christmas EverybodyWhile many of us want to exchange thoughtful gifts with family, friends and colleagues, none of us wants to break the bank.

    But never fear, for we are here with affordable festive frockery, vintage, retro and recycled stocking fillers and quirky secret Santa ideas that don’t cost the earth but are sure to please.  What's more, early bird Frockery shoppers will have 10% deducted from their purchases when they enter the code xmas-10 at the checkout (offer valid until 30 November).

    Rather than hit the high street, why not browse for bargains online to avoid the cold, the crowds, the consumerism  and the credit card meltdown?  There are many independent online traders selling hand made, vintage and  recycled items, but naturally we  have some suggestions from our own shop for those who prefer personalised presents to  mass produced predictability.

    We especially  like this retro tea towel and these 60s table napkins Old fashioned pinnies are always popular, as are scarves, bags, jewellery, hats and gloves.  Here are a few more ideas.

    Or how about a holly print dress or top?

  • Goodwill to all people and the planet

    November 14, 2007

    The Frockery firmly believes that the upcoming season of goodwill should be extended to looking after our planet as well as the people around us.

    Having recently floated the idea of green stocking fillers and sustainable 'secret Santa' gifts, we have been encouraged by the positive response of some of our eco-friendly customers, who say they do want to exchange thoughtful gifts with family, friends and colleagues, but really don't want any of them to cost the earth.

    Rising to the eco-challenge, we have now included a selection of goodies with suitably green credentials in The Frockery catalogue, which means they are all affordable, as well as being quirky, vintage, retro and/or recycled, in what we hope is a much needed antidote to the rampant consumerism which abounds in the run-up to Christmas every year.

    Retro tea towels are already flying out of the shop, and we have some old fashioned pinnies like this one on offer, as well as a selection of  inexpensive jewellery. You will also find an affordable selection of scarves, bags, hats and gloves, and even some retro table linen for some 1970s nostalgia.

    Meanwhile, dedicated fashionistas will still find plenty of affordable party wear for the upcoming festive season and, by Frockery shopping, they can congratulate themselves on reducing unnecessary style miles in the process!
