WAMP Summer Sale, Erzsébet Square Budapest, 4 August

  • 1 Aug 2013 9:40 AM
The warmest summer month is here, and now its time for the hottest design fair in Hungary, WAMP, to be held again in downtown at Erzsébet Square. For the first time in the history of WAMP - but apparently with the intention of starting a tradition - the 70+ local 'creators' will offer hot discounts, in parallel with end-of-season sales elsewhere in the city.

So no need to hesitate anymore, no need to just keep looking at a design object of your desire from afar, because here's a great opportunity to purchase the garment, accessory, gift, toy, children’s book or hand-made delicacy that you have been dreaming of....

Among the exhibitors, you can find labels such as Artista, who always centre their collection around a concept, Camou, decorating urban outfits and accessories with prints based on photos of Budapest or Noár Line, who use delicate fabrics. If you want to add a cool T-shirt to your wardrobe, you can be sure to find one that you like among the garments designed by Erikataylor or Szputnyik. If it is a unique piece of jewellery that you need, check out Bernadett Varga’s elegant creations that are made using a bead crocheting technique or the eye-catching items offered by Ottoman Design.

Those who need some refreshment at the fair can have some apple cider, one of this season’s cool product, at a discount at the almaCID counter, or some colourful macarons offered by Party Macaron, with creative yet delicious flavour combinations.

'Find the sticker and win a free gift'

The organisers are also launching a 'guerrilla campaign' connected to the Sunday fair. They say, "Try to find WAMP Summer Sale stickers in town, take a photo of one or more stickers and upload them to WAMP’s Facebook page. Your prize will be a pair of super comfortable white flip-flops, decorated with the WAMP logo, which you will receive at the fair on Sunday. Hurry up because we have a limited number of flip-flops!"

'WAMP goes to Szigetl'

Organisers also claim that the summer festival season isn't complete without a design fair, so this year WAMP is moving to Sziget again for the whole week. So if you get tired of partying you can go shopping at six WAMP wooden huts featuring designer clothes, bags, jewellery, accessories and gifts, and for those that can't stop drinking, they're offering specialty teas.
