The Preloved Clothing Market
This market offers no pressure, no weather issues, no grappling for stall spots, no rush, no bun fight, and definitely no dull moments to be had! This is the one for you if you like a quality, curated suite of stalls.
The Preloved Clothing Market hosts a few markets in the year on a Saturday. These are generally 12-3pm, St James Hall, on Elizabeth Street, North Hobart. All the generous-sized (pick-your-own-spot-when-you-book) stalls are indoors. From $39 a stall this is all-round value airtime, indeed.
This market community grew from being a physical market event to something that embraced the slow fashion way of life. People’s stories (seller backstories are fun), tips and guides to retail-therapy without a negative impact on your purse and planet, are great to share. You can discover the how and where (wear!) to get seriously dressed up in quality slow fashion.
Adding to these fun affairs, there’s good hot coffee, and delicious food. And, for stallholders, there is the freedom to choose your ‘always indoors’ stall spot when you book online, and ample time on either side of market trading to bump in and out. Plenty of opportunity to create and enjoy your wonderful display.
The Preloved Clothing Markets are about more than preloved and sustainable clothing choices, they’re about having a laugh, making new connections and spending a social day out selling or hunting for premium preloved, classical, every-day, vintage and retro fashion.
Shoppers, you’ll have heaps of time to grab your favourite coffee and sip as you shop – taking as long as you need to ensure you’re draped in preloved aplenty. Savvy shoppers can wander around for hours, circling (and dropping loads off to their car) and doubling back just to be sure they’ve secured as many bargains as possible!
It’s absolutely slow fashion shopping and sassy sustainability at its best.
