Crumpled hand-me-downs and children’s toys spring to mind when we think of a garage sale. Or perhaps images of a Desperate Housewives-esque neighbourhood sale with the kids passing around homemade lemonade… okay, maybe that’s just us. But what we have for you here ladies, is a garage sale like no other. The ultimate garage sale. Or, to be specific, the really really great garage sale at Selfridges!
Selfridges have teamed up with Mothers4Children to host an amazing event this Sunday with some incredible celeb-donated designer stash up for grabs. Charity patrons Yasmin Le Bon, Lisa B and Louise Redknapp have twisted the arms of their showbiz nearest and dearest to persuade them to contribute items to the cause. Want to get your mitts on Jemima Khan’s Prada dress? Or how about Tamara’s Jimmy Choo bag? Then pop this one in your diary. Other bits on offer include a Helmut Lang suit from Liz Hurley, Lily Allen’s signed Reeboks, and Trinny Woodall’s Thakoon gown. Personally, we’re staking our claim on the Balenciaga boots being sold courtesy of Gwyneth Paltrow *mega swoon*. And if those goodies don’t have you sold, Natalie Imbruglia and (get this) David Walliams are also manning stalls on the day, so you can get some personal shopping tips from the ultimate laaaaaaydy. And now, so you can plan your targets accordingly (we can predict ultra shopping mayhem…), check out our top sale picks in the gallery below!
Details: Mothers4Children support children’s charities worldwide and 100% of profits from the sale will go to them. Selfridges garage sale, Sunday 15th November, Selfridges first floor car park, 12pm-4pm. Entrance is £5 and free for children.
