Organisers of the inaugural Walk-In Wardrobe Yungaburra event are optimistic for the events success after growing popularity ahead of its opening on Saturday May 8, Mother’s Day weekend.

“A group of us girls came up with the idea for this event at a weekend away last year,” said organiser Binny Henricks.

“We wanted to have an event on the Tablelands where people could get together to sell pre-loved clothing.

“Our stallholders have a huge range of clothing and accessories for sale including designer, vintage, rockabilly, formal wear and children’s clothes and they’re the ones we know about.”

All 25 stalls have been sold with the money from the stallholder fees going to the Yungaburra CWA, Yungaburra Beautification Inc will also be using this event as an opportunity to fundraise for their project.

Fellow organiser Jenni Kruck said that the renew, reuse and recycle aspect was an important concept for the event.

“From a sustainability perspective, Australians send an average 23kg of textiles to landfill per person, each year,” she said.

‘This is a huge waste and by taking part in this event, you’re helping the environment and your wallet.

“Grab your girlfriends or make it a Mother’s Day weekend and head to the Yungaburra Community Hall between 9am and 5pm on Saturday 8 May.”
