The end of the Wilton Shop

Sarah Brough

Slingtastic is changing. It has been a real pleasure to meet so many people in the shop over the last two and a half years, but the time has come to close the store at Wilton Shopping Village. Slingtastic will still be trading online, as it has since 2008, and I will still be offering workshops and consultations to parents and carers, but there will be no regular shop opening hours.

Thank you to all of you who have come and visited the shop and bought many different things from us in this time. And thank you to the 'Us' - especially Heike, Kate and Jo who have been an invaluable source of support and I know have been a great source of advice and support to many , many customers too.

Over the next few weeks there will be special offers on clothes and slings, especially in store, to thank all our customers, and to help me reduce the amount of stock that is filling up the shop! We will be extending our opening hours and will be open in the week before Easter from 10.00 – 4.00 Mon – Saturday (including Good Friday) and we will be open on the Bank Holiday Monday for the last full day of trading from 10.00 – 4.00pm.

After 4pm on Monday 2nd April prices will be returning to the usual prices as the webstore will be operating as normal – but we would like you to be able to take advantage of the special prices so make sure you visit the shop or website before Easter Monday!

We are starting this week with 20% off all current season Frugi in store, and up to 50% off past seasons’ Frugi and Kite – so please come in and have a lovely browse and a chat. There are some really beautiful clothes and popular sizes sell out fast – and we will not be replenishing our stock of clothes. Our Sling offers will start next week.

Online, we are offering Mystery Bundles of clothes and toys where you can get a surprise bundle of clothes for the age of your child  - have a look here for details – the offer is just until Monday 26th at midday.

So .... the practical stuff summarised?

Sling and Accessories offers in store and online.


Slingtastic will still be offering workshops and consultations to local customers, and trading online as a website for people all over the EU, but the regular opening hours that allowed parents to just drop in for free advice and to browse are no longer going to be stocking the unusual clothes and accessories. Sarah would like customers with vouchers for goods and for workshops to know that she will be honouring these wherever possible for the next few months as she will still be running workshops . The vouchers can be used online at
