Clothing With a Cause update+Lucky Packs

(To find out what Clothing With a Cause is, click here.)

First of all, the amount of money it's raised so far comes to a little over $510, including a donation the folks at Weardrobe made in exchange for a goody box full of things for the Weardrobe Closet. Yay you guys!

In the beginning of the summer I said I would keep selling until the end of it, and there are still TONS of donations I need to get rid of and will keep selling throughout the school year until they're all sold. To get rid of them in bulk I asked Belle for permission to use her ingenious Lucky Packs idea.

What it is what it is
-A Lucky Pack is a box filled with goodies. There will be around 3 items of clothing, 2 accessories, and a fun book or zine or inspiration print, and a mix of new and vintage. Fun!
-It is all about luck, hence the name. You might like what you get and you might not, but you can always resell, or you can gift, or whatever. Even if you don't like everything you get, you'll still know the money goes to a good cause, and that certainly can't be a bad thing.
-I say I need to get rid of these items because they're donations, not because I wouldn't love to own them myself! Everything going in your Lucky Pack is something I would wear or like to own myself, if not, that's lame.
This is an example of one, minus a third piece of clothing which would actually be included.

How to order
I'm not using eBay for this and am doing just 3 Lucky Packs to begin with. First come, first serve!
1. Email me at with the subject line reading "Lucky Packs."
2. Type in your name, address and size.
3. I will reply with PayPal information (only form of payment, sorry.)
4. You will send money to the PayPal account.
5. I will email you once your item has been shipped. Worldwide shipping. $5 for US, $10 for everywhere else.

Each Lucky Pack is $65. Remember, one dress, a top, a bottom, two accessories, and a zine or little book or mini poster. Say you were to normally spend $25 on a dress, $15 on a top, $15 on a bottom, $5 for one accessory and $10 for the other, and $10 on a zine. That's more than the Lucky Packs cost, and the money goes to Darfur. There are no refunds-I'm trying to get rid of a bunch of stuff here-but if you don't like what you get, you can always resell.

It starts now, so email me asap if you're interested!
Thanks guys!!!!!!!!! xo

cool idea! if you make more later (once my Paypal account isn't acting so stupidly) I would love to buy one. I hope you keep 'em coming!

Do you group things by sizes? Are most of the items small, for example?

Sondra said...

Sounds awesome! And for a good cause. Wish I had a PayPal account though. And, you know, money.

Eline said...

NOEZ, let me know when you have cheap lucky packs! Seeing as I'm a poor student I really can't justify buying 65 dollars worth of things I've never seen. Cause you know maybe I should start learning food comes first before books and clothes ;_;
