A SPECIAL celebration is being held to give families the chance to find bargains and help save the plant.

Fashion buyer Kaley Gibbons launched her own business, Mini and Moi, in Minshull Street, a year ago.

The mum-of-two is hosting a secondhand event on Friday, September 29, from 4pm to 8pm, to encourage parents to donate and buy pre-loved children’s clothes.

The 38-year-old has already been overwhelmed by the response from local families.

Kaley, who has a daughter, Ivy, two, and four-year-old son, Quinlan, said: “This is something I’ve always wanted to do.

“There is definitely a need for it.

“We’ve had loads of lovely local mums already donate clothes after having a bit of a wardrobe clear out.

“It’s going to be a great night with lots of people supporting it.

“Anyone who donates good condition pre-loved clothes beforehand can have 50 per cent off on the day.

“We want people to give us clothes they’d be happy to inherit from a friend.”

All proceeds will be given to Oxfam.

The charity itself has already donated boxes of new and pre-loved clothes to support the fundraiser.

Kaley is teaming up with stylist Lucy Norris, who launched the first clothes shop, swap and style studio in the UK, to mount the eco-friendly idea.

The 37-year-old mum from Byley unveiled her unique ladies clothes boutique, Secondhand Studio, above Kaley’s shop six months ago.

Lucy, who has a baby daughter, Geneva, said: “It’s been amazing.

“We are so grateful at how receptive the women of Knutsford are.

“Lots of mothers shop with us.

“This is a nice way to introduce parents to pre-loved children’s clothes.

“My mum, Alison, brought me up on her own and she made pre-loved items look fantastic, which is where I inherited my passion for secondhand.

“It’s going to be a really fun event.”

Lucy will be launching her members' club at the event.

Prosecco and fizz will be served.

Lucy Grandige will be offering make up tips and advice.

Gosia Portzeba, who runs beauty bar Go Glam Knutsford, will be running mini pamper sessions.

The event is being held to celebrate Secondhand September month.
