For slow fashion September, we think you’ll want to head to Dulcie’s Carpark Bonanza very quickly!
Vintage clothing store Dulcie’s will be transforming their carpark on Grange Road Kidman Park into a paradise for second-hand traders on Sunday September 19.
From 10 am to 3 pm, stallholders will be set up in the carpark spruiking their goods from the vicinity of their car boots for slow September.
Thifters can expect a to find a range of special one-off pieces from clothes and accessories to homewares and vintage fabrics.
Visitors on the day will be able to fuel up for their bargain hunting with a sausage sizzle as well as cake stalls and fairy floss for the sweet tooths.
Dulcie’s Shop will be open on the day too, with live music and a henna stall for even more fun for shoppers.
Part proceeds on the day will go towards supporting people experiencing homelessness through the Hutt Street Centre, as well as supporting domestic violence services at Centacare.
The Carpark Bonanza is a part of Slow September which is an a month-long celebration of upcycled, handmade, recycled or repurposed goods.
It is hosted by Naked Pony Slow Fashion focused on conscious, sustainable and ethical second-hand or preloved/vintage clothing.
A number of events and experiences are held during the month including a mystery bus tour taking people to a selection of Adelaide’s best slow fashion scene venues throughout the period.
There are also sidewalk sales and slow fashion workshops, all focused on conscious consumerism.
The Dulcie’s Carpark Bonanza spotlights the purpose and love that Dulcie’s is established from.
As well as the store itself, Dulcie’s has a decorated bus filled with unique vintage clothing which travels to events and festivals throughout the year.
The concept first formed in 2013 by Amanda Blair with the help of Monique Bowley driven by a passion for vintage clothing, reducing landfill and raising funds for those in need.
All Dulcie’s proceeds are split between the Hutt Street Centre and Centacare on their mission to make a difference.
If you’re ready to haul some gorgeous vintage pieces, grab your masks, a big bag, cash and cards and head to Dulcie’s this Sunday.
There will be $2 entry fee and free for kids under 12.
Dulcie’s is located at 326 Grange Rd Kidman Park.
