Penola’s Recycled Fashion Pop-Ups are fast becoming a must for updating your wardrobe at bargain prices!
The event is entering its third year and shows no sign of slowing down. Held every quarter, organisers Amanda Flint and Janet Brodie always have a list of sellers pre-booking racks for the sale.
The event is a fundraiser for the Penola Coonawarra Sub-Fund of the Stand Like Stone Foundation.
Sellers donate 25% of their takings to the foundation. These monies are then granted to charitable projects in the Penola Coonawarra region.
2023’s first Pop-Up is being held, 17 th and 18 th of February at the Penola RSL Hall.
Friday’s times are 4-8pm and Saturday, 9-12pm.
While a chance for some to have a wardrobe clear out, it is definitely a fantastic opportunity for others to find fashion treasure – some still new with tags.
Women’s, men’s and children’s clothing will be on offer, as well a fun and social atmosphere for those searching the racks for Summer wardrobe updates.
Friday evenings of the pop-up are especially social, with a complimentary glass of Coonawarra wine offered on entry.
Amanda, Janet and their band of volunteers encourage you to come with a group of friends and enjoy hunting for beautiful bargains.
While definitely about fashion, the pop-up is equally a platform for recycling and sustainability. In a world where a distressing amount of clothing ends up in landfill, it is fantastic to see clothing going on to a new home.
