Shop til you drop at Lifeline

THE devil may wear Prada but the clothing sale about to hit Gympie is straight from shopping heaven.

Fashionistas with an eye for value will be able to get themselves a whole new winter wardrobe for $10 this week at the Lifeline Gympie $2 clothing sale.

On Friday and Saturday, from 9am-4pm, every piece of clothing in the St Andrew's Hall on Red Hill Rd will be walking out the door for $2 apiece.

Bigger and better than ever before, the sale will include brand names, factory seconds and second-hand clothing for men, women and children of every shape, size and budget.

"We have run a similar sale in the past but I think this year will be more successful as we are offering all clothing at just $2 per garment - that's a $1.50 saving per item," said Lifeline business manager Ian Ezzy.

"Previously, the sale offered garments at $3.50 each but now at $2 each, it should appeal to more people."

This year, the Nashville Scout Group will host a sausage sizzle to help keep up the strength of keen bargain hunters.

The success of the sale in previous years has helped to raise much-needed funds for Lifeline and the free support services it provides.

This year, Lifeline hoped to raise more than ever before but it needed the community's help to do so.

"We are calling on the community to come along and support the event and Lifeline," Mr Ezzy said.

"There really will be a lot to choose from and the average-sized family could outfit themselves for a very reasonable price - even at around $20 for a family of four," he said.

Lifeline's Gympie $2 Clothing Sale will stock a plethora of different styles and sizes so shoppers can easily search for something that suited their style, size and budget.

"We all need clothes to work and live in," Mr Ezzy said.

"There are many reasons why these clothes may need to be replaced: weight loss or gain, looking for a job, fancy dress, party attire, new baby, kids growing faster than ever, accident prone husband/children/wife/partner or just simply wearing them out."

While clothing companies made clothes that didn't last forever or fit every stage of our lives, through sales like this one, Lifeline provided an affordable, environmental and simple way for people to replace them.
