My Salvos Stores and celebrity Brand Ambassador, Barry Du Bois, officially launched the My Salvos Stores eBay Shop at an intimate evening event, at District01 in Surry Hills, last night. Furniture and home ware items being sold on the eBay shop were on display, and guests browsed the Salvos Stores eBay Shop on interactive iPads, with the option to bid on items or ‘buy it now’ – with one guest purchasing a vintage table and taking it home with them on the night!
Salvation Army officers welcomed guests, including media, celebrities and Salvation Army staff, and expressed their thanks for the great support they have received with the launch of the online eBay shop. Colonel Richard Munn, Chief Secretary at The Salvation Army, explained the range of community work that the charity does and how the funds raised from selling items on the eBay shop will greatly assist with their work, with all proceeds raised going towards The Salvation Army. Barry Du Bois took to the stage, expressing his gratitude and honour at being a brand ambassador for the campaign. Barry voiced how great he thought shopping at My Salvos Stores is to find unique, vintage and restorable items, which he regularly does for his Channel 10 program The Living Room.
Guests who attended enjoyed delicious canapés while listening to live music from local musicians, who had donated their time to play at the event, and browsed the furniture and home ware items on display. Barry Du Bois mingled with guests, ensuring he spoke to everyone who attended and encouraging them to shop on the My Salvos Stores eBay shop. Taxi service UBER provided all guests with up to $50 worth of free rides, making the whole experience seamless.
My Salvos Stores have been helping struggling families and individuals for over 125 years, and have raised millions of dollars to support The Salvation Army. Selected furniture items that have been donated to My Salvos Stores across the Eastern Territory will be sold on the eBay shop. Items will be available to purchase online through eBay’s buy it now or bidding option. Items sold will depend on what has been donated, with the focus being on vintage and unique household items. All proceeds raised from the Salvos Stores eBay shop will do towards The Salvation Army.
