This just in from Joyce Tomonari, volunteer extraordinaire for the Hawaii Opera Theatre.

Every year Joyce spends countless hours sorting, hanging, steaming and pricing gently used garments, household items and art to be sold at incredibly reasonable prices during ACT II to benefit Hawaii Opera Theatre.

Joyce reported yesterday that she was unpacking a true treasure trove of designer items. Among them:

  • Eight pairs of Louis Vuitton sandals, sizes 6 and 7
  • Barely worn Chanel basic black shoes, size 6
  • Kate Spade black handbag with leather/chain strap
  • Louis Vuitton sweater, size 2 or 4
  • Vera Wang black evening dress, size 4
  • Black Chanel suit, size 10
  • Full sets of Limoges and Wedgewood china
  • Pegge Hopper serigraph
  • Clothing by Eileen Fisher, Anne Namba, Harari, St. John and Escada, to name a few

And she said that’s just a drop in the bucket: “We have many, many racks of clothing and this year our selection of designer and couture clothing is the largest ever. Are you looking for a fur coat? We have furs. They are priced to sell!”

If you are interested in getting first choice of all the treasures, it would be wise to attend the Preview Night on April 24, from  5:30  to 9 p.m. For preview night only, there is a cost: $50, which includes wine and pupus. Tickets are required for entry and can be obtained by RSVPing to Tracy at (808) 596-7372.

April 25 – 27 it’s free to shop at ACT II. Here are the hours:

Friday, April 25: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Saturday, April 26: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Sunday: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Location: HOT Rehearsal Space, located at 780 S. Beretania Street. There is limited parking at Hawaii Opera Plaza, 848 S. Beretania St.

Hey, if you have gently used items that you would like to donate, they will be accepted today through Monday, April 14. Please take them to the HOT Rehearsal Space.
