Yes I know! This post has nothing whatsoever to do with sewing. It does have to do with clothes though! It’s a reminder of a Perth institution for anyone who is in the clothes buying mood, has a couple of hours free on Saturday and wants to support a very good cause.
It’s time for the annual Red Cross ‘Bindaring’ sale, which is on at Claremont Show Grounds this weekend. Details are at http://www.redcross.org.au/wa/events_Bindaring-2011.htmn .
The last one I went to was fantastic. One part was like a big consignment shop with clothes donated by masses of Perth shops and all sorts of designers (one person I went with emerged with a plastic bag of gorgeous Lisa Ho dresses for very little money). Other sections were more like a jumble sale. There are also parades of designer clothes which are auctioned. It is worth a look.
If you are in the buying mood get there early and it can get a bit jostly if you are trying things on. But it is all good fun and all for charity.
