The Threads Zoo has landed YET AGAIN!!!

Back by Popular Demand and Overwhelming Responses!!

As most of you would have already known, Threads Zoo is a place in which lifestyle traders of all manners can congregate during one weekend every month to peddle their wares and exhibit their materials for the eyes of the masses!
Here, although we are open to “lifestyle traders” of all sorts, we place emphasis on fashionista “bedroom fashion bloggers and shoppers” who market their second hand clothes online via their blogs, where not only will you get an opportunity to reach a larger target market, you will also get this chance to meet your buyers face to face to build your rapport.

What’s in it for you?
Basically, we will be providing you with a space to sell your stuff. Our venue will function similarly to a flea market, BUT the upper hand you get is that it is situated indoors and as opposed to steamy sweaty outdoor flea markets, we have it indoors, basking in the comfort of this special technology named airconditioning!
And amongst all this, the customers will still be able to enjoy the HIP ambience of a flea market ala woodstock, bohemian, nomadic; u name it. If they roam and they're hip, we’ve got it all. We will adorn the walls and floors with beautiful designs reminiscent of the old hippy era.
Simply put, this is the epitome of a flea market with perks.

Free Marketing?
And the cherry atop the cake, we will get your name and your wares across to the masses with no extra costs to you whatsoever!! Imagine what cash you’d have to fork out if you were doing it on your own. We’ll all end up with bleeding noses.
We will be distributing flyers, placing banners, maintaining a strong online presence with a website that at the previous event has proven to have strong HITS. We even had articles in newspapers and supportive blogs and we’ll be pushing for more coverage soon!!

Is this for you?
Of course what you’ll be needing is material to sell and you MUST be fun. We can begin to smell that sweet sweet stench of cash in the air now.. MMMMMMMM YUMMY
And unlike the previous event, we’re opening this round to a wider spectrum of traders, where you don’t only have to sell your fashionable clothes, bags and shoes, you can pretty much sell anything you want as long as it’s LIFESTYLE BASED, CARRIABLE and COOL. You want to sell your old CDs, accessories; if you think you can sell it, then BY ALL MEANS! Just as long as you don’t attempt to sell off your bf or gf there!
But to avoid repetition of stocks, we would appreciate it if we could brief through them prior to them being displayed. Since amongst our people, we have models and fashionistas who will be able to assist in such selection criteria.
EASY BREEZY RIGHT?? Then keep on reading…

Then how do I get started?
To be one of our vendors, which we so endearingly and lovingly call “Zookeepers”, all you have to do is fill out a form which we have provided below, giving us all your details and pictures of the material that you are planning to sell, and mail it back to us. Some brief descriptions of the items (i.e. this handbag was used by Hitler’s wife) would be helpful too! Hahaha!

After you’ve dutifully signed up with us, we will provide you with a 4x6 (or bigger) plot at our venue in TTDI Plaza (please see pictures below) and it will be entirely up to you how you wish to dress and beautify it up. We also have amenities such as racks and hangers and items of that sort for minimal additional costs. And I MEAN MINIMAL. Other than that, you can bring your own stuff, so we won’t patronize you by telling YOU what to do with your own space. Creativity shall flow from thy brain now!
There will be refreshments and music, possibly a live band if we can entice one to perform their acts on our cute and interesting makeshift stage. A little excitement for the boyfriends that follow their girl girl. : )r

Where in the World is it?
Oh sorry, the details are as follows:

Venue : TTDI Plaza, Unit B-2-5, Taman Tun
Atop the AYU JELITA SHOP (see picture & map below)
Date : 5 & 6 of April, 2008

Time : oh yes, 11am to 10pm

Ok? If you have trouble finding it, you can give us a call at
Dee – 012.2796944 Ben – 019.6932181
Wc - 012.3238344

Charges for Zookeeping?

We will be charging RM100 per space / per day. We will issue these spaces as packages, so tough luck. You’ll have to take both days, UNLESS there are any openings. We will be issuing a total of 25 spaces initially. This could change so we’ll keep you updated.

Yeah, we have done our market research! The conventional flea markets have much less to offer and on top of that, you’ll have to brave the scorching heat and soggy weather… so do the math!!

We would also like to take this opportunity to extend our warmest THANKS, GRACIAS, MERCI, ARIGATOU, XIE XIE, DANKE SCHON, SPACIBO and RHUMBA NANDRI to everyone who made the previous Threads Zoo possible as we definitely had the utmost fun, the music, the drinks and the people we meet; this event is something we will forever keep in our hearts, and partially in our pockets.

The turnout was SO good that we were hectic as heck and from there, have learned our ultimate lesson. BRING MORE PEOPLE!! The more the merrier.

Hi there

so happy to hear that there is going to be another sale, I missed the last one and was so jealous. I am Irish and I love flea markets but much to my disappointment when we came to live here in KL I could not find any. I am really looking forward to the 5th, thank you so much for organising it.

Hi there Liz! We'd like to thank you for your support and we hope that we can progressively deliver to you a flea market which bears some semblance to those u've probably seen in europe.

And make sure to leash all ur friends and families in and prove that we've got the juice here in our dear Malaysia too!!

Luv ya!
