‘Tis the season to splurge, and as there are very few things that I appreciate more than the comfort of my own sofa these days, the launch of new Hong Kong online marketplace Sooq really couldn’t have been better timed!
Sooq works with independent local and international designers to source unique and thoughtful handmade homewares, women’s accessories such as bags and scarves, kids items and — most relevant at this time of year — gifts, food hampers and Christmas decorations galore. The site makes it easy to order from several sellers in one place, and you pay just once via their checkout. Your items are delivered either locally or internationally (this can be one package or separately as they come direct from the seller), and many of the items for sale offer free delivery. Simple!
Here’s a wee taster of just some of the lovely local goodies currently available on Sooq:
Clockwise, from left: Skyline Leather Tote Bag HK$1950, Louella Odié; Luxury Christmas Hamper HK$1550, GMT Foods; Merry Bitz Snuggly Sleeping Bag Set HK$548, Tiny Bitz; Hong Kong Christmas/Wall Decorations HK$150, Thinq Hong Kong
As an introductory offer, Sooq are offering shoppers who spend over HK$600 the chance to win a rather lovely looking pair of ladies Cabretta Couture leather dress gloves worth over HK$2000. BUT that’s not all!
The lovely peeps at Sooq are also offering Accidental Tai-Tai blog readers a very appealing 10% off their purchases between now and 31st December 2014. To claim your one-time discount, just use voucher code AT01 at checkout and bingo, you’re done!
That’s now an extra 10% of the Christmas shopping budget that you can blow on Ferrero Rocher, comedy socks and mulled wine, (and 10% less spent on that grudge present to your rude Aunt Lucy). #winningatchristmas
Please note that this is neither a paid advertisement nor a sponsored post. (I just really like the idea of lounging on my sofa while Christmas shopping).
