Before the doors open wide, hot coffee and treasure maps are handed out to the exuberant crowd that starts lining up at 8:30am. Like the parking, it’s all free — until they cross the threshold and they find that stupendous thing that they didn’t know they wanted until they saw it there.

House and giftware. Knitted items. Movies and music. Electronics. Books. Jewellery. Stamps and coins. Linens. Vintage collectibles. Children’s toys and games. Art work. Preserves and treats. Eclectic antiques. Women’s & men’s clothing. Bric à brac. All lovingly displayed in 15-18 dedicated rooms: it’s a modest homage to the Istanbul bazaar!

There’s an array of stuff outside too: tools, gardening supplies, sports equipment, small furniture, odds and ends.

There’s an international café and a more traditional lunch room on site to fuel the prize-hunters and bargain-finders stamina.

It takes weeks for many teams of dozens of volunteers to cook and craft as well as a week before the event to sort, clean and spruce up the items for sale. Everything donated is re-used, re-purposed and recycled: from the first item received to the last one remaining, all in accordance with environmentally responsible guidelines.

This popular fundraiser started ~35 years ago; it just keeps getting better.
