What is a Label Traders Rummage Sale?

At Label Traders we are often being asked what exactly is our Rummage Sale all about?

Every few weeks our M&S factories and warehouses need to clear out their stocks to keep them organised and to a controlled level. These clear-outs usually involve large quantities of oddments comprising a variety of clothing items.  In addition, we get samples from our commercial teams and our sample machine room that we are unable to store - so add them into the clear out stock.

All of this stock is put together in a separate area of the Label Traders site (at Kirkby Road in Sutton in Ashfield, Notts) and we simply open the doors to the public!

As you will expect, these sales are eagerly anticipated by our customers, who 'feast' on the piles of some genuinely exclusive stock and bargains - generally sold from 25p to no more than £5!

We have a Rummage Sale on this weekend (24th and 25th June 2011) - so come along and see for yourself. Visit our website for more details.

Label Traders in June's issue of Prima Magazine

Isn’t it great when someone blows your trumpet for you?

We are always very grateful when customers tell us how much they like Label Traders, whether they do that in person, on Facebook, or any other way they choose. But, how brilliant when someone decides to sing your praises in one of the leading, national  women’s magazines!

If you’ve seen the June issue of Prima magazine you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. Local lady, Carol Evans, came under the spotlight, when Prima asked her to tell them a little bit about herself and her favourite things for their ‘My life put simply’ feature.

When asked to name her favourite shop Carol said: “It would have to be Label Traders in Sutton-in-Ashfield. It’s a local factory shop with bargains galore and clearance sales monthly. Heaven on a budget.”

Thanks very much Carol, what a thrill we all got here when we read that! We’re also hoping that, as Prima is one of the best-selling magazines in the UK, at least a few of the quarter of a million readers will be wanting to check out Carol’s recommendation!
