Book Week – Second-hand Costume Sale

We are looking forward to celebrating our annual Book Week from Monday 22 August through to Friday 26 August. This year’s theme is ‘Dreaming with eyes open’, with our annual Book Week Dress Up Day set for Friday 26 August.

To support students and families in preparing and deciding what to wear for the Dress Up Day, our student-led environment team are launching our first ever Second-hand Costume Pop-up Shop.

Donations needed

Over the years many families may have accumulated costumes and accessories, which might be resting in the bottom of a wardrobe / dresser.

If you are no longer needing any of these items, we would love for them to be donated to our Second-hand Costume Pop-up Shop where there will be a donation bin located in the library.

What can you donate?
If it’s good enough quality to give to a friend, then it’s good enough to donate. We can accept:

  • Costumes and accessories in clean and good condition
  • Hats, belts, shoes, ties, gloves, modern style clothing, and fabric
  • Small props & accessories – binoculars, magnifying glasses, walking sticks, stethoscope, handbags, wigs
  • Useful theatrical and/or historical style costumes e.g. Sherlock Holmes cape, medieval dress tunic, military jacket
  • Authentic world dress, traditional or modern
  • Animal costumes

What we can’t accept

  • Damaged or stained clothing / items
  • Worn underwear/swimwear/leotards
  • Toy weapons
  • Very Large Props

If you can make a donation, please make sure items are in a bag and size labelled.

Saving Landfill
Every item donated contributes to a healthier future for everyone by saving over 3.2 million items from landfill each year. Annually Australian’s acquire an average of 27 kilograms of new clothing per person, and discard around 23 kilograms of clothing to landfill each year.

If you are able to help out at the stall, please let the front office know as we will need help setting up, selling and packing away.

Come and grab a bargain and prepare early for Book Week!
