A QUACKING good pop-up designer clothing sale in Winton on Saturday is set to entertain local ladies, while the men are off duck-shooting.

The Duck Shooting Pre-loved and New Designer Sale is being organised by a group of local women, who have carefully selected their favourite designer clothing to on-sell, at the same time supporting a local charity.

“We’ve chosen Hospice Southland as our charity because we all feel a connection to it, in one way or another,” spokesperson Linda Riordan said.

Recycling clothing was a growing trend, which all the women supported, and they couldn’t think of a better day for the sale.

“We wanted to hold it on the opening day of the duck-shooting season, because it was a time when many Southland women were looking for a fun day out, while the boys were away at the mai mai.

“It’s also Mother’s Day on Sunday, so it’s perfect timing for ladies to treat themselves and grab a great bargain.”

Any unsold fashion would be donated to the Winton Hospice Shop and manager Maree Ronald said she was excited about the sale and happy to be included.

“We’re very grateful for this support and are looking forward to the sale bringing lots of people to Winton, with the Hospice Shop open too,” she said.

The sale will be at the Mrs Tradie premises, opposite the Middle Pub, at 257 Great North Rd, from 10am.
