Bargains galore at Alvi’s garage sale


On Saturday 14 September, our community members had a day out buying and selling second hand goods at Alvi’s garage sale on Soi 5 Beach Road.

Among the many vendors was Pat Burbridge who put up a stall full of Patricia’s home made jams and pickles on one side and jewelry on the other side. She could have easily put up a sign called “Jams and Jewels” as her trademark.

PILC came with a truckload of clothes and knickknacks to sell with proceeds going to charity as always.

Elfi Seitz came to support the cause and brought down a bunch of colorful retro clothes and pillows and cases.

Alisa brought down the ever so popular and fast selling organic Riceberry from Singburi province.  This limit-harvested vitamin-filled black rice is only milled for each order placed, thus preventing the need for fumigation and is absolutely free of chemicals. Orders are welcome. Contact: alisa. [email protected]

Alvi Sinthuvanik herself opened her home to all who came to browse and buy items visible to their naked eyes. Secondhand clothes, pots and pans, furniture, books, fax machine, potted plants, and even her dogs and cats, but because they gave her a puppy dog (and cat) eyes, they got to stay.

Home cooked foods were also available such as beef or pork curry on rice and spaghetti meat sauce.

There are still many items left before the house is cleared out, so email Alvi and you never know, come this weekend, she may open her home again for a good bargain and lovely foods: [email protected]
