Pet grooming services, custom birthday cakes, limited edition EZ-link cards ... If you can think it, you'll probably find someone selling it on Carousell. This 11th-12th August, the makers of our favourite online marketplace are bringing us the best of Carousell in the flesh at its annual flagship event: Carouselland 2018: Trails & Treasures

Here’s the gist of what’s coming your way: 

 

Over 400 specially curated vendor booths

 

Discover treasures from over 400 specially curated booths selling everything under the sun from brand new and pre-loved fashion and retro collectables to local bazaar treats and even fragrance subscription boxes.

Keep an eye out for hand-crafted items such as hand-pressed natural flower phone cases and clutches from @flonecase, customised saffiano leather accessories from @theimprint.sg. and handmade tote bags from @theeverydayclub.sg

And that’s not all, some of the most unique sellers from Malaysia, Taiwan, Indonesia, Philippines and Hong Kong will also be making a guest appearance for you to score finds from all over the region.

Raid their wardrobes and steal the looks of your favourite local influencers such as Jessica Tham (@tippytapp), Valerie Wang (@valerie_wang), Rachel Wong (@rchlwngxx) and more. Night Owl Cinematics' leading lady, Sylvia Chan (@sylsylnoc) and crew will also be selling their pre-loved items to raise funds for AWWA.

And if that doesn't entice you, drop in for a free workshop with #GirlBoss, Rachel Lim (@ms_rach) from Love, Bonito for an inside scoop on how to run your own business or pick up hand lettering with graphic and product designer, Ewejin Tee (@ewejintee). 

You can also sign yourself up for a free interactive photo trail with the phone photography kings of IG - Yais (@_yaisyusman_) and Yafiq Yusman (@_yafiqyusman_).

 

Interactive retro gaming and a food section

If you need a breather from all that shopping, head to the interactive gaming section for Kendama showdowns and some old school fun. Ready yourself for a 90s game console blast from the past and try your hand at classics like Sonic the Hedgehog and Street Fighter on Sega and Nintendo sets.

And for fuel, all our festival favourites are making a comeback. Look out for easy eats such as takoyaki by Saiko and piping hot churros by ChulopSG. Those who need a little more sustenance can look forward to Sofnade's famous Meatballs in a Bucket and Tulang Mee Kuah in a Bucket to load up their empty stomachs on the go.
