American Apparel Rummage Sale in London! Do you dare?

The American Apparel Rummage Sale is hitting London's Brick Lane Market from tomorrow! This humongous sample sale will run from Friday to Sunday, for 10 hours each day in an area that is 22,000 sq ft! And on top of that, items will start at £1 and ab-so-frigin-lutely everything will be discounted, in some cases, up to 85% off!!!

This event is being advertised on facebook, and already has close to 30,000 people RSVPed as attending! Madness, I hear you cry, but this is not an AA first, or, I'd wager, their last! But just to give you hard core rummage/sample sale lovers some idea of what you'll be in for, there's a facebook group called 'I survived the American Apparel Rummage Sale' - nuff said!

If you're an AA nut, who would do pretty much anything for a lace uni-tard, them brilliant, this easter weekend will be awesome for you! I, however, have never been much of a sale shopper, or a bargain hunter - in short, I can't be arsed with the drama! Who wants a fashionistas elbow to the face as you're reaching for those perfect leggings? Or the classic sample sale shopper who will literally grab anything in their path, regardless of style, colour or any other attribute - stealing that perfect item you were poised to pick up!

While that dirt cheap outfit might seem worth it at the time, who wants to adopt a war face and get battle scars while shopping on a bank holiday!?! To me, it just sucks all the fun out of it! If you want the rush of the shopping battle field, fighting for that last wishlist item in your size, try Cocosa, The Outnet or good old Ebay - you can shop in your pj's and eat your easter eggs! Sorted!

But if you really must go, have fun and good luck! And if there happens to be an AA skater dress there, can you pick one up for me please??? Ta!
