Got any plans for this Saturday? If you haven’t, then bring along your friends or family for a picnic at the park! Or a thrift shopping spree!
If you are not familiar with this, ‘Kabut In The Park’ is an event where vendors sell their products from their car boots. Most of them are just everyday people decluttering. From books, old gadgets, and clothes to toys, plants and home ornaments, you can get these goodies for cheap there!
It’s a not-for-profit, one-person initiative car boot yard sales, to help create a circular economy for the Earth by reducing the wastes that go into landfills; giving second life to good condition items.
Happening this Saturday (28 May 2022) at Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Center (klpac) in Sentul Park, the event starts tomorrow from 9 am to 2 pm and there’s no admission fee, it’s a thrift car boot sale, everyone is invited! A portion of the vendor fees’ goes to klpac, to help sustain the building as a non-profit arts organization.
With a collaboration with @rimbaintown this time around, Kabut In The Park has around 40 vendors for you to shop till you drop, some activities for playing like batik painting and tie-dye and also some little snacks for you to munch on at selected vendors.
Other than browsing for products at the car boot sale, you can also go on a picnic in the park with your friends or family! They even have picnic mat rentals if you don’t have your own mats.
‘Kabut In The Park’ is known to organize frequent car boot sales (this is their 6.1 edition) that started in 2019 where vendors will sell out their knick-knacks or products for cheap. The previous events had vintage cameras, pre-loved clothing, original barbie collections and even carnivorous plants.
The idea is for sellers to get rid of good condition items that no longer spark joy or need, buyers to get a real bargain – and for everybody to be happy; all whilst reducing the waste of these “items” from piling up the landfills. So, even Mother Earth will be happy! All Vendors are carefully selected #konmariwarriors.Evangeline Lim, Founder of Kabut In The Park to TRP
