Visiting ...... The New Rockett St George Outlet Shop
When I'm writing interior inspiration posts with links to buy stylish, eclectic items for the home the online interiors emporium Rockett St George always crops up in my searches. It's one of my favourite go to places for amazing pieces, from accessories to furniture, and I have many of their products in my own home..... and many more on my wish list!
So, when they contacted me and told me that they were opening a new Outlet Shop at their Sussex warehouse and asked me to come along and take a look before its official launch tomorrow, Thursday 22nd February, I jumped at the chance!
I am lucky that their warehouse is only a 15 minute drive from me and in the past they have held occasional warehouse sales where you can inevitably pick up some super bargains so I was excited to hear what this regular shop will have in store for us.
I was welcomed by Tina who is running the shop and we had a chat about what it will have on offer whilst having a good look around. Tina is a fabulous stylist and previously ran the concessions that Rockett St George had at both Liberty and Harvey Nichols in central London. I was soon finding it hard to listen to what she was telling me as I was distracted by all the gorgeous goods on offer at heavily discounted rates..... Sorry for making you repeat yourself Tina!
Tina told me that the Outlet Shop will be open on most Thursdays and occasional Saturdays and that it will work on an appointments system between 10am and 4pm so that people visiting will have space and time to have a good look around. There is a LINK on the 'visit us' page of the website to book a slot and there are currently appointments available between Thursday the 1st and Saturday the 17th of March.
So what will the Outlet Shop be selling? Well, with discounts of up to 70% it will be a mix of seconds that can't be sold online, often with very small faults, ex display stock and samples. Items range from furniture such as bar stools, sideboards and chairs, to lighting, shelving, wall art and all forms of accessories in between! Tina told me that the shop will be restocked weekly and that there will always be a good selection of items for sale.....
So, all in all it's an exciting opportunity to pick up some fabulous homeware at a fraction of the normal cost. I have my eye on a mirror with a small scratch that can be easily painted over, a couple of end of line dining chairs, oh and not forgetting a gorgeous gold shelf unit all with a 50% discount....... even my husband, who despairs of my constant interiors shopping has to be happy with that!
....... And if that wasn't enough, Tina tells me signed copies of the book 'Extraordinary Interiors' by Jane Rockett and Lucy St George will also be available to buy in the store. Tina's uniquely beautiful home features in the book and is one of my absolute favourites so it was great to also have the chance to chat for a bit with her on her home and fabulous eclectic style ...... If you want to see more of Tina's home she has recently featured on the RSG blog and it includes a youtube film about her favourite things where you get to see inside her house- well worth a look!
......All that's left for me to do now is show you some more photos I took yesterday of the store and for you to get booking an appointment to pick up some bargains!
I hope you enjoyed my insight into the exciting new Outlet Store...... and hey I'm only down the road give me a shout if you're heading down and I might just see you there!
