The latest Winter collection, The Tale of Two Bucks in Wednesday Wood, from the creators of Two Bucks ‘Til Wednesday went on sale recently in Mount Lawley, Perth, with organisers showcasing vintage clothing and accessories whilst raising funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF).
The sale attracted hundreds of shoppers, with co-creators Sophia Brown, Alicia Clements, Anna Brown and Hannah McGrath raising much appreciated funds for cancer research from the event.
Bargain shoppers dashed through stormy weather for the fashion sale, picking up vintage clothing, accessories and jewellery from the 1920’s to 1980’s in the latest trend to sweep fashion lovers in Perth.
Also on sale were special edition sweet treat, Cakiepops, in strawberry and marshmallow flavours, sold on the day to increase funding for cancer research.
With all profits going to ACRF, the organisers work tirelessly each season to string together a unique collection of bargain-priced vintage clothing purchased from local op shops, and then preview the items to the public with a beautifully-themed photo shoot.
Since its inception in 2007, the girls have been dedicated to the event – translating their love of vintage fashion into a fundraiser in honour of loved ones lost to cancer.
“Our enterprise started when someone donated a ‘deceased estate’ to us and we got bags and bags of really great hand-made clothes, particularly dresses, from the 1920s right through to the 1980s,” youth pastor and co-creator Sophia Brown said.
“I really would like to inspire other people to hold vintage clothes sales for the ACRF all over Australia because it is a lot of fun and a great way to raise money.”
Over the past few years the event has grown from a simple fashion sale among a group of family and friends, to an anticipated seasonal event that has fundraised close to $22,000 for cancer research.
ACRF wishes to thank these hip, funky and all-inspiring girls from Two Bucks ‘Till Wednesday for their continued support.
