Welcome to our new market place for rehoming your old Cat O'Brien items. Got something from an old collection of mine that no longer fits, or no longer fits your style? Maybe it's just ended up being sat in a drawer for a year and you'd like it to have a new lease of life. I am so proud to have a customer base that are interested in this type of scheme, and I'm so genuinely thrilled, as a life long second hand shopping fanatic, to be able to solidify my own garments as things to be treasured, and passed on, but not thrown away.
This is the new platform for people to rehome Cat garments, where people can easily access them. I've built my brand around sustainability, and it feels wonderful to know these items that have been built to last, can continue to be worn.
As well as hopefully finding items you've been after for a while that I no longer make, it will also be able to run at a more accessible price point than new items, with 20% of the proceeds going to charity too (think of it as a fancy charity shop)

So how does it work?
Below will be a submission box, where you can tell me about the item you'd like to donate. Tell me what it is, the size, and any details on condition. I won't be accepting old rags, and it has to have been bought from me, but any general wear and tear is fine, as I am expecting to do small repairs so things can be rehomed happily. For instance 'Black velvet classic corset, size S, bought in sample sale. Worn a handful of times, one eyelet missing'
In return for donations you can opt in to receive a voucher to spend on anything on the website. Vouchers will be valid for a year and be rewarded as following
Tshirts/tote bags/samples - £10 Voucher
Corsets/shirts/larger items - £25 Voucher
The voucher in return for your donation is opt in as I am aware some people may be getting rid of items as they no longer feel their style aligns with the brand anymore. If you do not want a voucher to spend with me, the charity donation from proceeds of your item will double to 40%!
Once I have received your enquiry I will get back to you via email regarding postage, and maybe ask for images before you send it.
If anything isn't clear just ask questions in the submission form, as I know this is a new concept so may well have some teething problems!
