What to Bring

Bring your patience ♥ 
Due to the unusual circumstances we are currently living under, the market halls have a restricted numbers policy to adhere to the physical distancing guidelines. As such our markets will operate (like many others) on a one in one out at the door to maintain a maximum number in the hall policy.

Bring an open mind and be ready to enjoy taking some style risks…why not…the prices will be great! It’s the perfect time to try that A-line skirt, the off-shoulder top, stripes or that vivid red you’ve so admired.

Coins for $2 entry. Or buy your entry tickets online here.

Bring plenty of energy, although there’s always coffee and eats so you’ll have the opportunty to refresh.

Bring cash and change. Most stallholders won’t have cashless payment devices or apps. But it does pay (pun intended) to ask.

BYOB – bring your own bags to collect up all your new-to-you haul!

No need for umbrellas or cold weather gear – all our stalls are indoors and well protected from whatever the weather decides to do.

A Note

All stallholders are independent of The Preloved Clothing Market in terms of their sales, prices and quality of their collections. These are the stallholder’s responsibility. Their market day takings and dealings are their own.

As a shopper you are paying each stallholder directly for whatever you buy from their stall.

That said, if you have any serious concerns with anything you observe or experience at one of our markets, please find us at the welcome desk and we’ll do our best to assist.

The Preloved Clothing Market has a strong focus on top quality clothing and wearable accessories for grown-ups, and ensures that all its stallholders appreciate this, but it takes no responsibility for the condition of items purchased from stallholders at this market. Please consider what you are buying and ensure you are completely satisfied with it before paying the stallholder.

A word to the wise … our markets focus on preloved and vintage wearables for adults, so if you’re after children’s clothing (under 13yo) please visit My Kids Market.

Entry to this market and purchase of items is at your own risk.

Our goal is to provide a safe, friendly and top quality event for the enjoyment of stallholders and shoppers alike.

Are you coming to have some fun?!
