RUMBLE IN THE JUMBLE WAS AWESOME














On Saturday it was Rumble In The Jumble 3 (I wrote a bit more about it here), which is basically a big fat jumble sale arranged by Gemma Cairney and The Music Circle to raise money for women living in the DRC where there is a huge problem of gender inequality.  This year the event raised £24, 458.62, which is wonderful.  I had a stall and it was a LOT of fun, I don't think 6 hours have ever passed so quickly.  I was so impressed by the amazing organisation skills and boundless enthusiasm of The Music Circle and Gemma.  And Jen Long's DJ set was pretty much perfect.  

There are loads of photos from the day here but I've also uploaded a couple I took amidst all the madness of  lots of lovely people trying to shop whilst also scoffing cake from Drink, Shop and Do.  No easy task, my friends.  

Along with hand-written lyrics from Annie Lennox and Shirley Manson's shoes, some of the clothes on offer were donations from people with sweeeeet wardrobes (Gizzy Erskine's Moschino cardigan above sold even before I'd had the chance to put it on the rails).  Big thanks to Liv Purvis from What Olivia Did (pic above) for keeping me company and purchasing Fearne Cotton's PPQ dress.  

Also, check out these DM's that went on a flash sale for £10 towards the end of the day - I may have picked up a pair of the floral ones for myself.  Such good times.
