Been forever hasn’t it!
So welcome to my err.. already a week old new theme to the blog! Whee, isn’t it colorful and cute.. and.. well, free. =X
Right i’m just gonna post photos of recent outings with friends. (more photos under the cut)
I should also mention that i gathered a few friends to hold another flea of our
usedanddirty pre-loved items (they’re all clean ok), and this time since there were more people it was fun-ner. Know what i mean. Besides it’s also due to my very noisy ol’ friend Ella. She reminds me of one of my furry four legged friend i know from downstairs. He’s always talking to himself and is super talkative when you pet him. So.. sama lah tu.
Actually i’ve got more photos.. but because i’m at work, i’m unable to post them up yet. I’ll try, no promises.
Just wanted to share the experience with the flea market. So basically i booked under www.fleawhere.com . Previously was booked under them as well. If anyone is actually keen to put together a flea market for yourself and some friends, there *are* a few organisations in singapore, but they all have different prices, and then you also have to factor in the crowd around the area, and what kind of items you’re actually allowed to even sell. AND if it’s convenient for you to lug your stuffs there.
So Fleawhere, they allow you to sell pre-loved items. Their rental prices is relatively low as compared to other organisations. And their crowd is very good. BUT, considering they have a good crowd, their crowd is also.. i’m sorry to say, people who really are looking for a complete bargain, you might as well give your item away for free.
Imagine selling a Topshop item you bought for about.. hmm.. on average they usually sell from $69 onwards.. and you’re there at a really stuffy, overtly crowded and dusty place selling your overpriced clothings for just $3 and below. Yes, me friend, $3 and below. $5 is considered expensive. Sadly. Even $3 is actually pushing it a little.
To be honest, i don’t actually regret, because in my opinion it was more of the experience and if you’re selling with really fun friends, then, i’m getting quite a return. I can’t speak for my friends though. LOL. This time, we smartened up a little, or rather Shabby did, she brought face masks for all of us, which was so, so helpful. I still remember when i did one with Fad and Fieza and it was so damn dusty, we all developed some sort of allergies and our eyes were red, we kept sneezing and sniffling, and … it wasn’t very pretty. So thank you to Shabby, like many, many, many thanks because this time? This time, not only was it really fun (for me anyway), and tiring, i wasn’t suffering from any health hazard.
AND these people didn’t know each other, so it’s nice to bring people together i suppose.
I’m open to have another flea of course, just maybe, this time at a new location.
If you wanna sell at Lucky Plaza under this Fleawhere’s Flea Party, just sell your really, really well loved before (but still in good condition) items that you wouldn’t mind selling at charity pricing. It’s fun experience though.
Oh, forgot to mention. My friends reached earlier than me so they helped to queue before entry. Apparently they got harassed by really impatient customers who just approached their bags and opened those bags without permission. I mean, hello, how uncivilized is that. We’re not in operation yet! STORE IS CLOSED. God. It’s like going into a forest and being attacked by wild boars. And yet we’re in a mall. Or rather it’s like having your shop shuttered but there are people outside rattling your shutters asking “HELLO? YOU HAVE BAGS? I KNOW YOU’RE CLOSED BUT YOU GOT BAGS RIGHT? GIMME. GIMME.” Ugh. The danger. It’s a thin line, close to being mugged.
Yeah well. That’s all i got for now. xx
