About Us

The Preloved Clothing Market is about more than a bimonthly market. It’s about a way of life. It’s about new-to-you clothes, about how to make room for your unique style, about shopping smarter, and about all things sustainable. Particularly, when it comes to hunting for your new preloved clothes, shoes and accessories. And, it’s mostly about making sure you can have your (retail-therapy) cake and eat it too!

This Preloved Clothing Market community is for everyone – whether you’re saving dollars, mindful of fast fashion’s environmental impact, after labels at a bargain, or simply after something unique and fun. All great reasons (but, then again, who needs a reason) to get hunting!

Whilst we do pop-ups occasionally, this market’s home base is beachside at the Kingston Beach Hall.

Our stories – Cathy

Meet one of our regular stallholders, Cathy. How fortuitous for Tassie that Cathy made a lifestyle choice to move from Sydney mid-last year. Her sea change has meant we have an enormous selection of designer labels and other classy brands to choose from. Cathy’s shopping trips to the mainland make for an all-too-tempting collection. I have certainly succumbed to my fair share of temptation! If you’ve wandered her stalls you’re likely to have done so too. Cathy’s relationship with clothes, and her love for preloved fashion, started when she was a young girl spending time around her father’s clothing business. Many afternoon’s after school were spent watching and learning until she commenced down the fashion retail path herself. Cathy ran a clothing business on the mainland for years until she decided to move to preloved fashion. Cathy’s Dress Upcame to life as a little shop operating for several years in Hurlstone Park hidden around a corner, down an alley, and behind a café near a train station!  Shoppers found her though – any passionate preloved fashion hunter worth her (or his) salt knows how to unearth the good finds. And, this was coined the best little second-hand designer clothing shop you never heard of! Now Cathy’s become a local in Southern Tasmania and joins our market regularly with her fab collections. You’ll find her stalls in the left-hand corner near the Kingston Beach Hall entrance. Be warned though…you’re bound to walk away with something!

preloved is for everyone

you say it best

Thank you for running such a great event and being so professional. The service I received was excellent and it was a fun day to be part of!

Thanks for a lovely market pre-Christmas. From the welcome with bubbles to the beautiful music, it was a pleasure to browse the racks of clothing.

Thanks, Amal for getting me motivated to make space and cleanse my cupboard of those pieces I might wear one day. Amal's professionalism and organisation were great. Made enough to pay for a very special treat!

Thank you so very much for this wonderful market. Visiting a beautiful market like this tickles the imagination to put together a fab outfit.

The market had a great vibe! Hannah and I had a great time and sold lots (… managed to buy a bit too). Super organised market.

Stallholders

Over the years, I’d sold bits and pieces at markets and garage sales – usually alongside other household knick-knacks. Most of us probably have. But now I wanted to seriously turn my overstocked wardrobe into dollars to spend on a style refresh.

Get started!

Preloved shopping and swaps are great opportunities to take fashion risks. If you've always wanted to wear a high-waisted skirt or a geometric print, now is your time to road test the look. Doesn't work? Recycle it next time!

take fashion risks 

Fast fashion is high-volume, low-cost clothing that's churned through stores, and our wardrobes, at an ever-increasing speed. Consider buying someone else’s past joys first before rushing down to the high street.
