The Preloved Clothing Market
Our Markets & Other Stuff
No pressure, no weather issues, no sifting through non-wearable paraphernalia to get to the preloved clothes, no grappling for stall spots, no rush, no bun fight, and definitely no dull moments to be had! This is the one for you.
The Preloved Clothing Market hosts a few markets in the year on a Saturday. These are 12-3pm, St James Hall, on Elizabeth Street, North Hobart. All the generous-sized (pick-your-own-spot-when-you-book) stalls are indoors and offer purely preloved wearables for grown-ups! From $39 a stall this is all-round value airtime, indeed.
Our market community has grown from being a physical market event to something that embraces 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 love to share. Discover the how and where (wear!) to get seriously dressed up in quality slow fashion.
Adding to these fun affairs, we surround ourselves with some toe-tapping tunes, good hot coffee, and delicious food. And, for stallholders, the freedom to choose your 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 fab display.
We are invited to host the occasional clothing swap such as for zero waste expos, school events and fundraisers. Watch out for one in your area – they’re a fun low-to-no-cost way to recycle your wardrobe whilst also sassing up your style.
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. 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.
