Besides inviting readers to take part in the garage sale, the market will also feature more than 300 items donated by celebrities.
These items include Channel NewsAsia’s presenter Steven Chia’s wetsuit, Timothy Go’s tailored jackets worth nearly S$2,000, and Nominated Member of Parliament Eunice Olsen’s golf clubs and bag worth over S$2,400.
And for S$10, you can either kiss the cheeks of Elvin Ng or Jade Seah at the flea market.
"When I was told about it, I was quite afraid since our society is still conservative. But the organisers told me selling kisses is common in America. I expect that I’ll be blushing on that day," said Ng.
Proceeds from the kisses and sales of celebrity items will go to one of MediaCorp’s adopted charities Rainbow Centre Balestier Special School.
Editor—in—Chief for 8 Days, Lau Kuan Wei, said: "We’ve got lots of very nice clothes, bags, shirts and makeup. We also have a chair from Bryan Wong he’s going to do a makeover of his chair, so we haven’t seen it yet. And Fann has generously donated a sofa from her warehouse. It’s a two—seater sofa."
More than 300 cars are expected at the 8 Day’s Car Boot Flea Mart on Sunday, 2 December, at St James Power Station car park.
And 8 Days hopes to make this inaugural event an annual affair.
The 17—year—old magazine has seen readership increasing in the past few years hitting 150,000 readers in 2006.
8 Days said recent surveys showed that more executives and professionals are turning to the magazine for their dose of entertainment.
