Stylishly Celebrating Sancho’s Second Store
Sancho’s Organic & Ethical Independent Store Open Their Second Store on Fore Street
We are extremely excited to announce the opening of our second shop on 117 Fore Street in Exeter and we’ve decided to throw a launch party on the 11th November (11am-4pm) in honour of all you lovely customers that have made this huge step possible.
Kalkidan and Vidmantas, Exeter University Graduates, founded the store in 2014. Our inspiration grew via travels to developing countries such as Ethiopia where we saw first-hand the effects of the fast fashion industry; low wages, mass dumping, social disruption and environmental destruction. In Sancho’s we stock a carefully curated range of clothing, accessories and gifts from organic and fair trade producers.
On November 11th help us start this new exciting chapter of our lives and let’s celebrate the future of sustainable clothing and gifts! There will be 10% off EVERYTHING in both our shops for the whole day and you’ll be the first ones to see and buy our new autumn winter items – this is the perfect opportunity for some (early) Christmas shopping! We will have 10 new brands, alongside a line of our own vegan shoes, woven scarves from Ethiopia, and a line of jewellery Kalkidan has designed. By expanding our range, we hope to also expand our ethical impact, both locally and globally.
Kalkidan Legesse, the store founder, said:
“We could not be more excited to open up this shop! Over the past few years we’ve been listening to all the things our community is looking for in the realm of ethical fashion but are finding it difficult find, and we are so pleased to now have the space to offer it to them. This seasons collection is so lovely! Tactile and beautiful, made by women and men around the world and right here in Exeter we can’t wait to share it!”
Customers will receive a little Sancho’s goody bag with a locally made and printed tote bag, an organic tee, a pair of bamboo socks, a candle, a handmade soap, and other little surprises. Plus, there will be fizz and nibbles and live music for everyone to enjoy whilst they shop our new range and chit chat. Bring friends, family, strangers… anyone you find who might share our passion!
