The Car Boot Sale is adorned with a selection of fabulous items from celebrity wardrobes organized by The Circle, including items kindly donated by Annie Lennox and Livia Firth. Others are yet to be confirmed.
Founded in 2008 by Annie Lennox, The Circle is a global feminist organization that uses the collective power of women to support the world’s most vulnerable women and girls. In her mission to create a fairer world, she focuses on economic empowerment and ending violence against women and girls. All funds raised during the Car Boot Sale will be used for this important work.
Raakhi Shah, CEO of The Circle, said, “We are excited to be part of the first ever Revival Car Boot Sale. It’s a great way for us to raise money to support some of the most vulnerable women and girls around the world. It’s also a great opportunity to showcase our work, which fits perfectly with the Revive and Thrive ethos at the heart of this exciting event. “
The Revival Car Boot Sale will also feature Circle of Style – a new personal shopping subscription service that eases the stress of second-hand shopping.
Circle stylists upgrade your wardrobe and ensure that pieces that are rarely worn have a second life; helping their customers revive and thrive popular items.
Car Boot aficionado and Revival Style Adviser Bay Garnett said, “I can’t wait to come to the Car Boot Sale on the Sunday morning of the Revival and discover some hidden gems. I love nothing more than walking around in a car driver – you never know what you might find – but I know that I’m sure to find some gems at the Revival Car Boot Sale. “
During the weekend, Bay will also speak to visitors to discover the legacy and stories behind their vintage fashion.
The Car Boot Sale will be an integral part of celebrating the revival of exceptional craftsmanship, style and sustainability as Goodwood encourages visitors to embrace the event’s thoroughly modern “revive and thrive” ethos.
There is also someone to help with changes and a team of stylists on-site to suggest different ways to wear the purchased pieces to ensure buyers get the most out of their new discoveries at the event and beyond.
