The Fashion Edition: Alphabet Bags Sale Alert

 

I have posted about Alphabet Bags before when i first started up my blog. I just love the brand, run by husband and wife sharing a passion of typography and slogans that lead to creating lovely printed accessories. The items that they sell are so affordable and just brilliant quality, i get so many compliments on the slogan clutch bag i treated myself to last year (take a peek at my previous purchase here). The reason behind another post on the brand is that i wanted to share with you the seconds sale that they currently have running. I follow Alphabet Bags on Instagram and a bargain alert post caught my eye! If a little product imperfection doesn’t bother you then you could grab some gorgeous arm candy for half price or less.

I chose this lovely large wash bag, alas not for myself but a gift for my wonderful mama as it’s her birthday soon but she will be on holiday for it so i plan to fill this pouch with mini travel beauty treats, isn’t the slogan just perfect for the occasion? It was a tense wait for delivery, i wasn’t too sure how ‘imperfect’ it would be, i was torn between saving a few pennies and just paying full price to save any hassle. It was the first time i had used the website to order something so i didn’t really know what to expect, especially being a second. They explain that the items could come with small marks, patchy ink or a faded print. It arrived beautifully packaged and when i unwrapped it i was confused i thought that they must have sent me standard stock by mistake, i checked the paperwork but no it was invoiced as ‘second stock’. Well, i was seriously impressed as in my eyes there wasn’t a thing wrong with it and i really thought i would see something glaringly obvious but nothing, it was in fantastic condition. I’m really pleased with my purchase and i know my mama will be too!

I couldn’t recommend this brand enough, typography print is everywhere at the moment and you can probably thank the ‘quote of the day’ hashtag on Instagram for that (who doesn’t love a good quote). I’ve got my eye on the cute coin purses that are stamped with an initial, which by the way are also in the seconds sale – i have every confidence that you will find a hidden gem in this sale but be quick as stock is limited!

How lovely of you to drop by!
