From Geronimo Stilton books for 6-year-olds to buying an Audi car for the yuppies, homegrown Carousell app has certainly turned itself into a top of mind marketplace for people buying or selling new and pre-loved goods. Carouselland, a 2-day an offline event hosted by Carousell seeks to make the marketplace experience come to live by bringing together over 400 popular sellers from its community. The event will take place at Suntec City Convention Centre on 24 – 25 June 2017.
What to expect at Carouselland
From retro collectibles & games to lifestyle gadgets and homemade gifts, the 2-day event will feature 600 booths with a wide range of new and pre-loved items. Popular Carousellers like @vintagewknd will be showcasing affordable vintage clothes while @t.faith will be letting go of impulse fashion buys, something we can totally empathise with.
Carouselland 2017 is divided into 4 themed-zones: Harry Potter, Once Upon a Time, Alice in Wonderland, and Wizard of Oz. Having these themes will certainly help you communicate where you are located at the Convention Halls when going in groups or as a family amid the troves of shops and bargain-hunters.
Think you are good at retro games? It’s all going down at the Retro Gaming Corner mend by Carouseller @retrorider where you stand to win exciting prizes if you take down the highest score at Tetris. Other vintage arcade games like, Contra on the classic Nintendo Famicom System, Golden Axe 2 on a Sega Megadrive 16 bit system and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on Super Nintendo will be restored to its former glory too at this corner. We are just glad that someone is still taking good care of these classics.
If you are bringing your kids along, there is a Kids Corner set up to keep them entertained while you scan the floor for deals. Carouseller @icelebr8 will keep them busy with shows and a colouring corner among other activities. Best of all, the ‘service’ is free and you also get to print out all your memories at a free Instagram booth when you hashtag #Carouselland2017.
