Shop until you drop and help Kelowna charities

The rain has arrived to the Okanagan, and that must mean fall is here and so is the Fall Closet Cleanout.

The rain has arrived to the Okanagan, and that must mean fall is here and so is the Fall Closet Cleanout.

This pop up Ladies Fashion Flea Market is back again at the Parkinson Rec Centre on Sunday Nov. 8 from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. Ladies can now commit one full day to clearing out their closets.  Along with over 50 tables of ladies gently used clothing, accessories, and shoes; there will also be tables from some of the Okanagan’s unique boutiques who will be selling their clothing at great prices!

Every Kelowna Closet Cleanout supports local women’s charities. This event will support Mamas for Mamas, who will receive a portion of the proceeds and all leftover donated clothing. Mamas for Mamas is a registered non-profit organization that connects mothers to mothers in their home communities. Founded in Kelowna, Mamas for Mamas attempts to break the cycle of poverty for mothers in a province with no poverty reduction plan. They have sustainable nourishment programs, second chance computer programs, emergency support, referrals to resources in our community and so much more.

Early shoppers will get first choice of items, and be one of the first 100 through the door to get a reusable gift bag, with coupons and gifts from our participating businesses!  But late shoppers will get some incredible deals, as these ladies really want to clear out their closets!

“I love events that are a win for everyone involved. This event gives shoppers an opportunity to purchase directly from ladies’ closets, buy unique items and save big,” said Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown of RedScope Media the producer of this event. “Not only are the ladies’ getting great deals, but they are also helping to support some local charities.

Unfortunately, the tables are sold out for the fall event.  But you can still come and shop some great deals. More details about the Fashion Flea Market are available on And join them on Facebook at to keep up to date on future Closet Cleanout’s.  Any questions, and you can email Rosanne Ting-Mak Brown (Event Producer) directly at
