Preloved for your littlies!

Preloved for your littlies!

Kids grow so fast and their interests change so quickly that, to keep up, parents are seeking more clothes and toys every few months. This adds up – taking up space and dollars. Fortunately, the trend to thrift has extended to children with a significant number (around 80%) of parents opting to supplement their children’s wardrobes and toy boxes with quality preloved clothing and toys, and up to 75% of parents getting on board to on-sell to help their and other’s pockets.

So, if you’re looking for items that need to last only a few months (like that briefly popular toy or game) you might get lucky at a thrift stall.

We’re excited to be offering, in addition to our usual preloved wearables for the grown-ups, 0-12 kid’s preloved clothing and small toys at our markets from December 2021. Our friend of the MyKids Market has hung up her shingles (her market will be sorely missed) and we’ve had so many enquiries that, with the MyKids Market blessing, we are now providing this opportunity locally in southern Tasmania.

Join with friends and bring along your baby and toddler wear, and small toys and items, like books, wooden, solid plastic and plush toys, small equipment like baby monitors and the such like. Just make sure, please, that all is clean, wiped down, not compromised with cracks or broken (or loose) bits, and are items you would confidently pass on to a friend.


UTAS Pop-Up Preloved Clothing Night Markets

UTAS Pop-Up Preloved Clothing Night Markets

It’s on again! The Preloved Clothing Market and UTASLife collaboration went down so well in June that we’re going for take two. Bookings are open for the second UTAS Pop-Up Preloved Clothing Night Market on Friday 28 September, 4-8pm at UTAS CBD Apartments, 157 Elizabeth Street in the city. Have a read of the Stallholders Info and Book your spot.

In June 2018, The Preloved Clothing Market joined the University of Tasmania to kick off Semester 2 with something a little new for students, staff and the local community with a Night Market.  

The event was resounding success with the Ref pumping with preloved fashion, live music and enthusiastic bargain hunters. No-one was to be disappointed with the turn out and the fab fashions on offer. Many walked away, arms overloaded with their finds.  The mood seemed to be that one can never be too wildly overdressed!

We predicted we’d be back! Don’t delay…get along for a fun night bang smack in the heart of Hobart!

Pink Ribbon TWL Preloved Clothing Swap Breakfast

Tasmanian Women Lawyers and The Preloved Clothing Market are excited to be joining together to cohost a Pink Ribbon Breakfast Clothing Swap because we want to help raise awareness and make a difference to Australians affected by breast cancer. Most of us have been touched by this in some way.

Your ticket is to swap (up to 6 preloved garments and/or accessories), to enjoy a complimentary champagne breakfast, to enter you into a hamper draw and has you kindly donating to the 2018 Pink Ribbon Breast Cancer Campaign. Book to Swap. It’s at the Law Society of Tasmania, 28 Murray Street, Hobart from 7.30 – 9.00am on Wednesday 10 October.

Donations made by purchasing a ticket to this breakfast and made to the National Breast Cancer Foundation Event Page will help enormously.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) is Australia’s leading national body funding game-changing breast cancer research with money raised entirely by the Australian public.

We certainly believe research is the best way to prevent deaths and improve how breast cancer is diagnosed, managed and treated. NBCF is working towards one goal: zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030. Together we, with you, can help them get there.
