Brisbane Arcade – one of Brisbane’s oldest and grandest shopping arcades opened in 1924 – will host its annual and much anticipated workroom sale from Thursday 31 January to Sunday 3 February.
European fabrics and fabric remnants, workroom samples, millinery, designer fashion, bridal accessories, jewellery, leather bags and gift lines, tea accessories and more will be on offer across the four days of market style shopping in the beautiful heritage Arcade.
Bargain hunters can reel in heavily discounted items from renowned names such as Belle Folie millinery, BethWyn Fabrics, Darb Couture, Details Designer Jewellery, Indepal, Keri Craig Emporium, Maiocchi, Pia du Pradal, The Tea Centre, Tengdahl and Wendy Louise Designs.
Brisbane Arcade Marketing Manager Andra Bite says the annual workroom sale always creates a flurry of excitement as the Arcade’s designers delve into the epicentres of their work – their workrooms – and specialty boutiques clear out their sale or seconds stock to put on sale never before seen samples, seconds, one-offs and other special discounts. “It’s a chance for many shoppers to come and snap up a treasure trove of goods from our stunning Brisbane Arcade retailers and is very different from the many commercial retail sales currently on,” Andra said. “There is nothing like the feeling of swindling a bargain and in many cases the items at our annual workroom sale – they are one-offs or truly from Brisbane Arcade workrooms where many of our retailers make and craft their designs and creations.”
Brisbane Arcade – Brisbane’s ‘jewel in the crown’ shopping arcade – celebrates its 95th anniversary in 2019. It has been home to Queensland’s ‘royalty’ of fashion and jewellery designers since opening, and the iconic Arcade today is also where some of the city’s best high tea and café dining venues can be found along with unique gift emporiums, stockists of exclusive international and local fashion and accessories labels along with beauty outlets and more.
Brisbane Arcade operating proceeds benefit the University of Queensland Medical School and medical research.
