Date for the diary

Zonta's Pre-Loved Designer and Vintage Women's Fashion Sale - we need your help!

Hello Ladies,

Are you thinking about clearing out your wardrobe? Please think of us when you do, as we need your clothes – to help us with our programs to advance the status of women in our region.

The Zonta Club of Canberra Breakfast Inc is holding a Pre-Loved Designer & Vintage Women’s Fashion Sale on Saturday 5th March 2011, and we need your help to make it a success, and achieve our goals.

Don’t leave unworn outfits languishing in your wardrobe – your unwanted clothing can help us to provide awards to assist women with tertiary education, help women entering refuges and other projects.

If you have good-quality, contemporary items of clothing that you can spare – including handbags, shoes and scarves – let us know and we’ll come and pick them up. Email: with your address and phone number or phone Minh 0402 285 586 to arrange collection.

The sale will be held from 10am – 3pm on Saturday, 5th March at the ACT ATSI Cultural Centre, 245 Lady Denman Drive (city side before Scrivener Dam). Schedule this date in your diaries, and come shopping with us.

sorry - posted to wrong blog.

Simply the Best

Apartment Therapy (not somewhere I read but I followed a link), has complied a list of the best thrift stores and flea markets in the US for 2010.  Great if you happen to be travelling Stateside.

What about locally - what were your best buys this year?  Your favourite outlets?

Answers on the back of a postcard or in the comments - or even better - a post!
