Once dubbed "the Rolls-Royce of garage sales" by The New York Times,
the event offers attendees the opportunity to score designer goods at a severely discounted price, and also enjoy the many Super Saturday experiences. The daylong fundraiser will feature a not-to-be-missed designer garage sale, kids' carnival and activities, a luxury raffle and gourmet treats.
Guests can stop by PRIV's Braid Bar for a hair touch up or look into the future during a psychic reading with Betsy Wahmann. Capture the moment in the DKNY Psychedelic Photobooth by The Bosco or visit a Super Saturday newbie like Alex and Ani Charity By Design manicures, beauty touch-ups by Tre'StiQue and dream interpretations by Casper. Feel the flower power while making a floral crown with B Floral and enjoy some R&R in Brancott Estate's Flight Song wine bar and massage parlor. Think you know your designer goods? Then take TheRealReal luxury design challenge "Is It Real or Is It Faux?" to win credit on the luxury resale's site.
This year's on-site luxury raffle will feature items from Charlotte Olympia, David Webb, Lorraine Schwartz, Pologeorgis Furs, Seaman Schepps and Vhernier, and experiences donated by Flywheel Sports, Soho Grand Hotel and The New York Football Giants, among others.
