Those Boden shopping parties - presumably it is run similarly to a Bodyshop party?

Hmm. There is one shortly at a posh girls school near me - will I get near it for the braying yummy mummies?

I went to one last week. There were five or six rails of clothes for women, two for mini Boden and a solitary rail of mens clothes. There were quite a few shoes, boots and accessories to try on.

There were jeans in every size, and some sort of attempt had been made to bring along different sizes of everything, although the coats all seemed to be size 8.

Even though you couldn't actually buy any of the clothes there and then, people were still elbowing each other out of the way to get to try the clothes on.

I couldn't believe how many items some people were buying, but it there was a good offer on so I'm guessing either some had more money than sense or they were going to flog things on ebay.

I went with some friends and it was quite an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.

I was invited to one 'in my area' last week but when emailed for further details to the address given it turned out to be three forthcoming 'parties' all miles away. And the venues implied something rather larger-scale than a 'party' in someone's house. On the other hand, I suppose that means there would be more stock there. If they actually had one within say 20 rather than 100 miles I might go! As it is, I'm nearer their shop than eg Reading/Wokingham...

I'm off to one next week - I'll report back ref bargains/vouchers.

I don't bray though & I'm more slummy than yummy wink
