The Grande Braderie, the annual sale organised by UCAM, the Monaco Union of Traders and Artisans, takes place Friday to Sunday, November 3-5, at the Chapiteau in Fontvieille.
The 21st edition is open daily from 10 am to 7:30 pm, and will offer dozens of big name brands offering slashed prices of up to 70 percent.
Sort through dozens of stands and racks full of designer bargains, from clothing for women – including Marie Muller swimwear and accessories, Italian fur coats by Carlo Ramello, Banana Moon swimwear, beach towels, ready-to-wear designs, and shoes – to menswear, kids clothing and shoes.
You’ll also find sporting goods – Rossignol, Dynastar, Head ski equipment, plus sportswear and shoes from Adidas, Nike, Converse and Vans – and home accessories, like Fashion for Floors carpets.
Other brand names you’ll find are Carlo Ramello, Chaussures Antoinette, Clo, Ekinsport, Espace Monochrome, Galerie Shayesteh, JPA Monte-Carlo, Jules, La Botterie, Le Requin blanc, Lull, Sam Ichtys, Segraeti, Serna, Swann Hostein and Trends Monte-Carlo.
Stock up on Christmas toys for kids and dogs.
UCAM supports Monegasque charities, and several stands will be on hand to make a fundraising appeal. There’s also a pop-up café at the back of the tent.
Last year’s tombola, which included dinner at the Café de Paris, Sunday Jazz Brunch at Saphir24, and lunch at the Novotel Monte Carlo, was a one-off event to celebrate the 20th anniversary edition, UCAM confirmed.
However, preferential parking at Fontvieille car park will again be offered this year. Pick up validated tickets at the Chapiteau entrance.
The 21st Grande Braderie is the perfect way to spend the coming rainy weekend.
