help make a difference and unclutter.
Held annually since 2006, this one-day event has
been attracting hundreds of bargain hunters on the lookout for
treasures sold by the glitterati, members of the expat and
diplomatic communities, and the public, some of whom volunteer

nearly-new second-hand items in mint condition. Past events have
seen, among others, certified brand-name goods, vintage clothes,
fashion accessories, jewellery, home accessories, sports equipment
