Bindaring has proven itself to be Perth’s treasure trove, and it’s back this weekend

When I found an Aurelio Costarella jacket in perfect condition within the depths of packed clothing racks in 2020, I thought I’d hit the jackpot.

I later discovered this monochromatic masterpiece was a one-of-one garment, and my jackpot find had suddenly turned into treasure.

Bindaring clothing sale, founded in 1963, has earned a name for itself as Perth’s treasure trove by consistently obtaining the largest luxury range of vintage pieces within the saturated Perth market scene.

The coveted event, which has raised in excess of $2.4 million for the Red Cross over the years, has eager guests line-up from six o’clock on the day to score themselves a designer piece of the past.

Big names such as Christian Dior, Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood can often be spotted, but for committee member Karen Leary a stand-out designer donation in 2020 was two authenticated Chanel jackets that resold for $900 each.

The luxury finds didn’t arrive as one would presume hung in a garment bag without a spec of dust visible, but instead within a large bag of regular clothes as if it were treasure to be uncovered for an unknowing volunteer sorter.

“We get huge names donated and never cease to be amazed to find them in bags all folded up,” Leary told AAA.

“It speaks volumes about people who don’t need to make a fuss about the fact they’re donating a high-end label. They’re just happy to pass it on.”
