Preloved is a market community where you can buy and sell fab quality preowned fashion items and accessories. Preloved is passionate about inspiring you to embrace slow fashion. At Preloved, there’s no such thing as second best – we reclaim second hand as second nature.
Preloved is for everyone – whether you’re saving some dollars, mindful of the environmental impact of fast fashion, after labels at a bargain, or you’re simply after something unique or fun. All great reasons (but, then again, who needs a reason) to get hunting!
Occasionally we host Pop-up Preloved Clothing Markets at different locations. And sometimes we take our Piccolo Pop-Ups along to join in with community markets. Watch out for one near you.
Preloved Clothing Markets’ home base is beachside at the Kingston Beach Hall.

The Preloved Clothing Market is joining 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. As a student, you’ve either been working very hard or about to start so come and unwind and mingle at a Uni Night Market with A. Swayze and the Ghosts.
Enjoy a host of market stalls on the Ref Steps from 4pm as well as a preloved vintage clothes off the rack sale…for all your fashion bargains.
Students are encouraged to come along and sell their clothes. It’s $10 for a stall. Please read the UTAS Night Market STALL HOLDER INFO HERE. UTAS students will be reimbursed on the night via food vouchers. BOOK YOUR UTAS NIGHT MARKET STALL HERE.
Finish off the afternoon with the sounds of Tassie favourites A.Swayze and the Ghosts supported by Art School Bullies at the U-Bar.
There will be a will be a galaxy of food options for you to feast on and entertainment during the market from talented Conservatorium students who each bring something of their own talent along.
This event is funded by SSAF and is free to students. The Market is free for all. Community members are invited to buy tickets for $10 at the door to enjoy the music.

Picture yourself hunting quality preloved clothing at a selection of quality stalls nestled beneath the vaulted gables of an 1840’s warehouse right in the heart of Salamanca.
Join us on Saturday 28 July in the Founders Room, upstairs in the Salamanca Arts Centre (SAC). Two Birds. One Stone. Wander Salamanca’s Saturday Market and pop up to shop from 10-2pm. You’ll find us through the doors off Wooby’s Lane or come up in the lift off the SAC Courtyard.
Preloved is very excited to be popping up in this newly renovated SAC Founders Room – think polished oaken floorboards, limewashed sandstone walls and heritage windows that look out over the SAC Courtyard on one side and Wooby’s Lane and Salamanca Square on the other. Gorgeous!
Whilst stalls have virtually sold out for this event (within a week of being released!), if you’re interested in being a stall holder please take a look at the T & Cs here and click here to get yourself on the waitlist. We are holding this Pop-Up again on 15 September.
We listened, and we are delivering.
This year, Preloved Clothing Markets are packing a fab four-hour punch on a Saturday from 10am to 2pm. And, at only $2 entry, and $20 a stall, that’s all-round value airtime, indeed!
Add to this experience; fun music, great coffee, delicious food, a leisurely one hour bump in (to create your fab display), and one hour bump out. No pressure, no rush, no bun fight, and definitely no dull moments to be had! Plenty of time to grab your favourite coffee and sip as you shop – taking as long as you need. We’ve known some shoppers to wander around for hours, circling and doubling back, just to be sure they’ve secured as many bargains as possible! It’s absolutely slow fashion shopping at it’s best.
Get along to any three (or more) of our markets in 2018 to enter the draw to win a $50 preloved shopping voucher and a complimentary stall.
How does this work? You can enter the draw whether you’re a stall holder or a shopper, or both, on 3 or more occasions in 2018, AND have registered yourself at the welcome desk on arrival, or by default on booking, paying for and attending a market stall. It is your responsibility to ensure we know you’ve been along each of the three times! And, we’ll keep that record in a safe place!
The winner will be notified by email so please make sure we know it!
The interest in preloved menswear is on the rise. After all, why wouldn’t men want to be in on the secret we women have known for quite some time…that there are some fab quality preloved finds (at a bargain) to be had!
We are seeing a bit of menswear and would love much more. At a recent market, a fellow said ‘you’re the only one with items for men, that’s crazy!’ So please, bring gear for him along when you’re having a stall.
We are seeking your help to up the ante on getting it out there so that your man can come along and have some fun preloved clothing shopping too (rather than looking a bit forlorn traipsing behind you). It’ll also free you up to get down to some serious hunting!
We are always seeking your help. If you can’t get along and would prefer to donate uniform items, we’ll gladly take them off your hands to pass along to others who’ll be thrilled. Entry $2
The next uniform market is on Saturday 12 January, 2019, 12-2pm, St James’ Hall, 463 Elizabeth Street, New Town
We welcome you displaying any and all preloved school uniforms, bags, shoes, and school books.
It is free to display your items for sale but bookings are essential. The TryBooking portal will open closer to market day.
Secure your spot or ask questions about getting involved by emailing us
Buyers like to be tempted by knowing what items to expect. Telling us what you’ve got to sell ahead of the market day increases your chances of selling.
Turn up with your items for sale from 11-11.45am for set up.
For more information about how this works, and with any queries about displaying your items, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are honoured to have so many fab and enthusiastic stall holders. As such, our markets tend to book up quite a few weeks ahead of market day. Please check the booking buttons above for stall availability and booking opportunities. The Book Your Stall button below will take you to the booking list where you can choose from several upcoming market dates. Don’t dilly-dally!
