If you’re anything like us, you’ve got baby clothes your little ones have grown out of jammed in plastic bags in the most unlikely of places – under beds, in drawers and tucked on top of cupboards. What to do with them all? Bring them along to the Seesaw Clothes Swap and pick up some gently-used threads that others are swapping instead! Clothes should be for ages 0-3 and in good condition.
Where: 5/F, The Club, 109 Repulse Bay, Repulse Bay, Hong Kong
When: Friday 27th April and Saturday 28th April from 11am-2pm
How much: HK$20 per person
Luxury for littlies
You might think Lane Crawford Home and tiny tots don’t mix – having whisked our little ones through the store, mindful of their sticky fingers and clambering toes, we’d generally agree! However, it’s all change this weekend at the gorge Pacific Place store where they’ll be hosting a Cool Kids pop-up store event, full of home goodies and awesome toys for your tykes. Make sure you RSVP to grab a spot!
When: 28 April, 2-5pm
Where: Lane Crawford Home, G/F Pacific Place, Admiralty, Hong Kong
How Much: Free; RSVP here to make sure you’re on the list
We’re animal lovers here at Sassy Mama so we’re big supporters of the SPCA and all the great work they do for our four-legged friends! In the run-up to next week’s annual Adoptathon, they will be holding a Pre-Adoptathon Carnival for you to learn a bit more about the cause, with fun and games, charity stalls, education booths and more information and stories about adopting pets from the SPCA. Feel free to bring along all four… or two… legged members of the family to join in!
When: 28 April, 2-5pm
Where: East Point Road (outside SOGO), Causeway Bay, Hong Kong
How much: Free; proceeds go to SPCA
