This Thursday 25th August, we are hosting a pop-up event with friends at Pawsey Preloved in the beautiful Brighton lanes! Together we are celebrating the launch of our new joint project - Organic Zoo Buy-back Scheme.
Ahead of the event, we asked Georgie a few questions, so that you can get to know her a little bit better!
We’re so excited to have you as our official Buy-back seller! Can you tell our Zooniverse how to get involved?
Yes! I’m thrilled to be heading up Organic Zoo’s buy back scheme! The buy-back scheme is a simple and effective way of supporting fashion circulation. All you have to do is send me your preloved Organic Zoo items and in exchange you’ll receive a discount code for your next purchase at our webshop. There’s no limit on how many items you can give send in to be rehomed and for each item you will receive a one use discount code.
Tell us a bit about Pawsey Preloved..
Pawsey preloved is a curated selection of children's clothing and lifestyle, we offer a consignment service taking the hard work away from you selling items you're wanting to rehome - it can be super time-consuming taking images, uploading them onto various platforms and deflating when the items don't sell. We take every little bit of stress off your shoulders, everything from start to finish - it's truly simple. And the best part - you get to see your children's clothing reworn or reloved!
Why Organic Zoo?
My love for Organic Zoo started 5 years ago when my little girl Afie was born, and since then it's been a much-loved brand that has remained in the girl's wardrobes over the years! The first piece I ever bought was the Milk bodysuit...it's so cosy and cute and was just the sweetest piece for a newborn. Now my girls are older, I have so many favourites from Organic Zoo's range but Cottonfield has got to be my ultimate! Suri wears her sweatshirt all the time! If I ever have to buy a present for a baby shower or a newborn - my route will always lead to Organic Zoo, you cannot go wrong, there's something for every little one.
Where would you love to be in a year's time?
In a year's time I would absolutely love my own studio space, I feel like Pawsey Preloved has grown so much in the time since we started but I would absolutely love a dedicated space to focus everything in. At the moment I do have a little spot at home but I'm not sure my husband can deal with much more before it take's over the whole house!
What advice would you give mums starting up a new business?
I started up my business during lockdown, both of my girls were around 24/7 so the house was busy! I would say you have to find a time in the day that suits you, I don't think you can always work to the traditional 9-5 working day. The key to is to be consistent - don't give up if after a couple or months something hasn't gone to plan. If you have the drive and determination, you'll make it happen!
We are so looking forward to welcoming you on Thursday 25th August at Brighton Pop-up!
Opening hours: 10-4pm
Address: 7-8 Reget's Arcade, BN11HR, Brighton
