The summer edition of the famous "Hope Fair" will take visitors to explore around 100 amazing vendors at the Ballroom, 7th floor of Avani Sukhumvit (BTS On Nut exit 3), tomorrow from 11am to 8pm.

Everyone is invited to indulge in some much-needed retail therapy where vendors will be on hand to answer questions and share their expertise.

This is a good chance to discover gourmet and deli treats, designer clothing and accessories, children's educational games and clothes, home décor, organic make-up, toxin-free household products and much more.

For the first time since its inception, the fair will feature a second-hand luxury goods section. This section will be offering luxurious pre-loved goods including gala dresses, branded bags, accessories and assorted decor.

This new initiative is inspired by the fair's mission to support sustainable retail cycles and champion local charities. Two non-profit organisations, Home of Grace and HDF Mercy Centre, will stock, organise and operate the second-hand luxury goods section and all proceeds will go to support their respective causes.

Ready to entertain the crowd for this edition will be Dr Penguin the Clown who will be giving away balloons and showing off some magic tricks.

Those looking to update their profile pictures or have a family photo can get their pictures taken by a professional photographer.

Office folks are also invited to stop by after work to mingle and enjoy being part of a community of conscious shoppers and socially engaged entrepreneurs who, through their participation in the fair, donate to the underprivileged children of the Klong Toey slums.

There is no admission fee. Visit
