OH Summer Plans

We have been quiet off late ..Nevertheless  very productive.
Esther’s Attic Officially closed doors for this season on May 26 with an eventful day of sorting, rearranging, spring cleaning and plans to come back with a better, refreshed and focused look.
Our student interns from American University of Kuwait (AUK) and Symbiosis University (Pune) steered through the early hours of the Saturday to give Esther’s a quick wash and polish before they wrapped their tenure with us for this season. The pictures speak for themselves.

The energetic Harts club helped us wrap the last shift at the boutique before we closed off for the summer yesterday.
So we would be missing in action this summer but not quite living under the rock. While we aim to have a productive summer trying to build our donation drive for our yearly winter warmth campaign and the reopening of Esther’s Attic in the Fall ( October), we continue to meet every Saturday from 730 am – 830 am for our weekly sorting activities. We also continue to receive donations of gently used items on Saturdays (730 am – 830 am) and Tuesdays (after 6pm) .
We are thankful to each and every one of you for helping us through a successful season. You have blessed us as a customer at Esther’s, volunteer, benefactor, and support system for all of OH’s initiatives.

May Fayre Sadu House Bazaar Fun times

An Absolute day of fun at the back drop of sunny weather
with soft clouds in the sky and crisp air around..needless to say we almost did get a fright on Thursday night courtesy of the sudden dust in the air..but all turned out well :)

The team had an absolute blast manning the diwaniya and serving the visitors at the Bazaar with all kinds of savories and sweets, wide selection of Almarai Juices ( Thank you for your amazing donation Almarai), to homemade lemonade and other beverages.

Thanks to all those that came and supported us as a sponsor, visitor, baker, donor and volunteer. You all make it possible time and again :)

Esther's going away for the summer

It has been a busy few months since inception for Esther's Attic which is why it would be closing down for the summer...but for good reasons :) the boutique plans to make an early autumn comeback refreshed, rejuvenated and with a vibrant and more refined look.
We had our successful summer madness sale last week and have another three more weeks into operation until we close for the summer. 
Our last working day at Esther’s Attic would be May 26.
We are open on Fridays (9am- 11am) and Saturdays (9am – 12pm) until then. So make the most of it guys.
P.S. We may be closing Esther’s for the summer but do know that we would be accepting donations for gently used clothing and household items all summer long.

So feel free to let us know if you have something you want to donate at

Donation drop off details and time are on our website.

Summer heat, great steals and lots of madness fun at HOPE House
