i’m part of a company that hosts pop up clothing consignment events in canada and we’re interested in potentially hosting our __insert city__ event in your space! we’re planning to host our event on __insert date__ from 1-5pm. we would ideally want to get into a space the night prior to set up for our event, if that’s possible.
here’s some information about closet raid: closet raid is a company that facilitates consignment events which focuses on reducing clothing waste, helping those in need by donating to local charities and bringing together the community. we typically have about 20-25 friends who consign their “unloved” clothing and help host the event - most of our clothing sellers have been previous/current retail employees (mainly from aritzia).
our events vary in attendance, but for last fall, we had our best turnout in calgary and had about 1450 guests comes through the venue in a span of 4 hours. in calgary, making changes association is our local charity that we support as they focus on helping women, who have gone through tough life situations, get back into the work force. we donated about 40 bags of clothing from the sale. we select a local charity for every city we host in! this past fall, we hosted events in the following venues and cities:
rodney’s oyster house, calgary
barre fitness, vancouver
the gladstone hotel, toronto
vacancy hall, edmonton
wallstreet commons, saskatoon
