This market has offered 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 has hosted a few markets in the year on a Saturday. These were 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 was all-round value airtime, indeed.

Our 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, is what we have loved to share. You could discover the how and where (wear!) to get seriously dressed up in quality slow fashion.  

Adding to these fun affairs, we surrounded ourselves with some toe-tapping tunes, good hot coffee, and delicious food. And, for stallholders, the freedom to choose your stall spot when you booked online, and ample time on either side of market trading to bump in and out. Plenty of opportunity to create and enjoy your fab display.

We have been invited to host the occasional clothing swap such as for zero waste expos, school events and fundraisers. They’ve been a fun low-to-no-cost way to recycle your wardrobe whilst also sassing up your style.

The Preloved Clothing Markets have been about more than preloved and sustainable clothing choices, they’ve been 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 had 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. We’ve known savvy shoppers 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. This could be yours to build and enjoy. I certainly did!
