Frequently Asked Questions
What is a stall?
What does a stall cost?
In 2019 stalls are offered at $40 per stall space (the sale of just two $20 outfits!). You can book a single or double (or sometimes at the discretion of management, a triple) stall through the Book Your Stall buttons on this website or through using our event name on TryBooking.com.
How will I find where my stall is?
Why can't I book some markets or stall types listed on the website?
What time can I set up?
Please note: all stalls are allocated on the floor plan long before market day so there is no need to get to the venue early to grab what you consider to be ‘the best spot’.
Must I have my stall/s open for the market hours?
Shoppers expect the market to be operational until close – often this can be the best time to make quick sales! And it’s unfair to fellow stallholders and shoppers if you pack up early and leave the market looking semi-packed down.
Do I need to stay for the whole market?
Should I label my things? What should I price my things?
Can I share my stall?
What if I have more stuff than fits my stall?
Should I bring cash for float?
What are market hours?
Our markets are held on the last Saturday of most months and run from 10am – 2pm.
Do I need to print out my TryBooking ticket?
How well can I expect to do no market day?
How you do on market day can fluctuate from market to market and does not depend on where you are placed or how many shoppers come through the door.
The difference between a good day and a great day can be how you approach the day. Sometimes you’ll sell a handful of higher priced items, and sometimes you’ll sell a pile of lower priced items. Go with the flow! Come along with an open mind and the enthusiasm to on-sell as much as you can (even if that means negotiating or reducing your prices if you want).
A shopper may buy up your stall because they’re into your style – it only takes one! And, shoppers will be attracted to different stalls and stallholders on different days (that’s human nature).
Above all, a fun day is s successful one, so don’t give up!
Are there ATM facilities at the venue?
What if I have items left at the end of market day?
Four options come to mind (there are probably many more):
We will always have Red Cross boxes available to receive your very welcomed donations of quality unwanted items.
Take it along to your local Op Shop.
Ebay or Gumtree.
Sell it on.
Have another stall.
The hard prep work is behind you so if you don’t sell everything, pack it away ready to stock your next fab stall.
You’ll soon be a market pro!
Please don’t add your unwanted items to landfill!
What if I have a question before booking?
What can I sell?
What can't I sell?
This is primarily a preloved women’s clothing market and not the market for bric-a brac, books, art, furniture, tools, household goods (soft furnishings, large or small electrical or otherwise) or toys.
What if I'm not sure what I can sell?
What if I'm on my own and need to take a break?
What is the weather notification process?
Please ensure we have your email address and mobile number in case we need to contact you on market day.
Where applicable, outdoor stallholders purchase a stall with a buyer beware proviso as there’s no refund or transfer if the weather is inclement. The outdoor stall fee takes into consideration this risk..
What if I can't make it - can I get a refund?
Up to 72 hours prior to market day we may offer a one-off transfer to another market day if there are specific circumstances for you being unable to attend on the day (this excludes outdoor stalls where they apply). This will be at The Preloved Clothing Market management’s discretion.
What if I am running late?
Are there toilets? Is there a change space and mirrors?
Other than my fab collection, what should I bring?
Can my family and friends come along?
I'm on the waitlist, how will I hear if I have a stall?
You will be contacted in the order in which you joined the waitlist IF a booked space becomes vacant. It helps everyone if when you are offered a spot but can no longer take it you please communicate with us asap.
We apologise if you miss out due to timing but by the nature of a waitlist and last minute vacancies things can happen suddenly and quickly.
How often are Preloved Clothing Markets run?
Our markets run on the last Saturday of most months and pop up all over the place! Watch out for one near you. All our markets are advertised on Facebook, through local rags, posters and other marketing material. Word of mouth (thanks to you) works brilliantly as well!
Where can I park?
Parking spaces and bump in and bump out opportunities vary depending on the market venue. The market’s Stallholder Information materials will provide general information about local parking. Specific instructions will be emailed prior to market day, where relevant. Bear in mind sometimes there may be meter or car parking charges (which are not related to The Preloved Clothing Market market operation). Other times parking may be free.
