Swap-shop mar­kets

Friday - - Shopping -

If you’re look­ing to de­clut­ter your home, you can take your pre-loved goods to the Sher­a­ton Abu Dhabi Ho­tel & Re­sort’s char­ity flea mar­ket to­mor­row (be­low). (Book a ta­ble for Dh285 with Elena.raznova@sher­a­ton.com). If you’re in­ter­ested in shop­ping rather than sell­ing, pick up cloth­ing, elec­tron­ics, books, DVDs or toys from 9am-2pm, at the Arzanah ball­room. Funds col­lected from ta­ble hire will go to­wards sup­port­ing the treat­ment of child­hood can­cer in the UAE. In Dubai, it’s all about trad­ing old for new (or pre-loved) items at the Fash­ion Swap Shop at Re­form So­cial & Grill, The Lakes Club to­mor­row. From 1-6pm, 30 in­de­pen­dent fash­ion brands, ac­ces­sory de­sign­ers, chil­dren’s fash­ion la­bels, jew­ellery will show­case their wares in the gar­den along­side pre-loved fash­ion items. Vis­i­tors get mini man­i­cures and mas­sages, mummy and daugh­ter pam­per­ing ses­sions and face paint­ing. Both mar­kets are free to at­tend.

The Deer­fields Mall in Abu Dhabi is con­tin­u­ing its Marhaba mar­ket un­til Fe­bru­ary 4, with Candy­land-themed ac­tiv­i­ties and prizes for kids, live mu­sic, a photo booth, and arts and crafts work­shops. Those who spend at least Dh300 at the mall could win a stay­ca­tion at the Fair­mont Bab Al Bahr in Abu Dhabi. You can find the events in Deer­field’s gar­den.

The Abu Dhabi Pop-Up Fes­ti­val is set­ting up a fun mar­ket at Eastern Man­groves Prom­e­nade to­mor­row. There’ll be stalls fea­tur­ing over 60 UAE brands as well as mu­sic, food, and en­ter­tain­ment for chil­dren such as bouncy cas­tles and ac­tiv­ity cor­ners, from 11am.

There’s a new mar­ket in Garhoud, too. The Week­end Fam­ily Mar­ket at Cen­tury Vil­lage at the Avi­a­tion Club launches to­day. It will show­case cre­ations by lo­cal de­sign­ers and artists, as well as of­fer en­ter­tain­ment for kids. The mar­ket will run ev­ery Fri­day un­til April 28 (ex­cept dur­ing the Dubai Ten­nis Cham­pi­onships).


New fash­ion la­bel Les Tré­sors de Mimi will be re­tail­ing at the first Week­end Fam­ily Mar­ket in Garhoud to­day.
