Mum-and-kids flash sales site Casabu, which was one of the finalists in this year’s Startups Awards for Online Business of the Year, recently got in touch and asked if I'd like to see for myself what they had on offer. Casabu, which launched in April, has constantly changing daily sales of stylish clothing, toys, nursery equipment, maternity gear and treats for mums at prices that are up to 90% off retail prices. The company is backed by London entrepreneur John Heseltine, who is behind leading retail brands Cherrygood and Love Juice.
I had a look through and picked out this rather smart Street Hoody from La Queue du Chat, a very funky but also eco-conscious French brand that focuses on providing a range of lovely organic fair trade items for children aged from newborn to ten years. I've had a look on their website and although I can't find the exact item I ordered on Casabu, similar hoodies cost €32 (about £26) but I managed to pick this top up for £14 so that's almost half price. It's made from lovely soft cotton - you can feel the quality - and I love the cute monster printed on the front and back. It's a brand I'd never heard of so it's great to see lesser known products and companies showcased on Casabu.
The brands on offer are constantly changing so I've just been to have at look at what they currently have on sale and totally fell in love with the fabulous pyjamas (or playjamas, as they call them, which perfectly sets the tone) from Barcelona based designer Gabriela Colãs - your kids can dress up as a cowboy, fairy, ballerina, chef, princess or pirate at bedtime and as they are on sale at half price, they're actually very reasonable.
Delivery costs £3.95, or is free for orders over £75. They aim to get all orders sent out within 10-14 days - my order was held up but that was due to a glitch because it went through as a free order, not something that normal paying customers would have to worry about. If you love looking for designer items at vastly-reduced prices, it's a great place to find quirky, original products for babies and children.
