Your wardrobe is busting at the seams. There's no point ironing anything when your clothes squash against eachother like consumers at a Black Friday sale. The doors don't close. You need to relieve the pressure to be able to find anything. The last year or so you've been collecting new items and not being able to throw any away. Collecting like you need one of each, in each colour, length, pattern, print, fabric, etc.
That was me. Me until I booked a stall at Glebe Markets for Saturday 14th January, 2017. Time to farewell some of my much loved collection. I have a range of beautiful pieces I've saved from various opportunity stores. Pieces that I appreciate the branding of, the quality and intricacy of. I've teamed these gems with those who I need to say goodbye to, those who deserve to be saved.
I'll be in stall D64, selling under the name SAVING GLORY. A little project I'm working on to reuse, relove and repurpose fashion.
I'll be selling some shoes, accessories and handmade jewellery from my brand BLEAK DESIGNS too.
Something for everyone! Come by and say hello, you may want to rescue something for yourself.

We've all been there...
There's something just so exciting about moving out of home or into a new place for the first time! Exciting new furnishings to buy to try to fill every wall, floor or corner.
The problem we have with buying everything at once is; the money, lack of research and compensating what you really want for something that 'will do' for the moment. You're going to end up with a home cluttered with things that you don't love or want to replace within a year.
Tip #1: Buy only the essentials! And by essentials I mean, a mattress, some sort of landing space to eat a meal off, maaaaaybe a sofa and an empty box for a side table. The rest can wait.
Tip #2: Research! Look through magazines, go to stores, check out your local classifieds, antique stores, etc. Open all of your options to start your elimination process. Say you've found a dresser for $5,000 on a boutique website. Image search for similar items. You may even find one that you like better and it's cheaper! In saying that, you don't have to do the research if your heart is completely set on that dresser. Go get it!
Tip #3: Furnish your bedroom FIRST. Your bedroom is your little hideaway, your sanctuary. By furnishing this room straight off the bat, you will feel more calm, have a sense of residence in your new dwelling and have a better night's sleep.
Tip #4: Furnish ONE room at a time. Yes, we get excited and want to furnish the lot. It pains us to see the other rooms empty and bleak. By furnishing one room at a time, you will feel more complete knowing that you can focus on the next project and not feel like the whole home is an unfinished novel.
