Urban shoppers can take advantage of bargains buys at the 11th Clutter Sale for Charity that will take place at the Grand Ballroom of Anantara Siam Bangkok on April 1 from 10am to 5pm. Organised by NewsMakers, the event features more than 70 booths selling primarily second-hand items but in almost new condition, donated and/or sold by VIP guests, celebrities and the expat community.
The NewsMakers is a group of charity-minded creative-thinking individuals, comprising Thailand Tatler editor Naphalai Areesorn, media veterans Netra Ruthaiyanont, MR Usnisa Sukhsvasti and Cora Sukhyanga; public relations professionals Annabelle Daokaew and Somsri Harnsrisawasdi, prominent landscape and interior architect ML Poomchai Chumbala, Naphaporn Burusratanaphan and Melanie Sukhyanga.
Dubbed a “flea market extraordinaire”, shoppers will find international designer goods, evening wear and fashion accessories, antique and vintage collectibles, gadgets, gizmos, sports paraphernalia, home decor, small appliances, novelty items, and gently-used treasures, as well as slightly-used catwalk outfits from prominent fashion houses and company overruns.
The Charity Corner offers goodies starting at Bt20 while the Designers’ Corner boasts a collection of donated designer items, ranging from bags, shoes, clothing to accessories donated in the name of cancer research, by free-spending jetsetters and socialites.
Event-goers will get a chance to win vouchers of air tickets, hotel stays, spa treatments, food and beverages. Proceeds will be donated to Chulalongkorn Hospital’s Genetic Cancer Research Centre under the auspices of the Thai Red Cross.
