We are holding a Preloved Clothing Market on Friday 23 and Saturday 24 November with our friends Bare Bazaar, just in time to clear your wardrobes and refresh them ready for the festive season!
The clothing industry is a wasteful one, if you caught Stacey Dooley’s Fashion’s Dirty Secrets on the BBC recently, you’ll know that the cotton manufacturing industry is rife with problems – if you didn’t catch we’d advise checking it out. We are putting on the sale to encourage consumers to move away from buying new ‘fast fashion’ from high street shops and buy preloved instead.
The sale is for preloved clothing (ladies, gents and children’s) – this means good quality clothing with plenty of life left, so if you would no longer wear it yourself, or it’s only suitable for decorating or nightwear, please do not bring it. If items are in poor condition they will put buyers off and we reserve the right to remove them from the Sale. Underwear and nightwear is not accepted unless it still has the original labels.
To register as a seller, just buy a ticket for £3.73 from eventbrite and we will send you the information pack and seller labels to print yourself at home! Then bring the items to us, we will display, them, sell them and give you back 70% of your earnings. The 30% commission and seller registration fees will go to to Bare Bazaar CIC and Craftship Enterprise CIC (made in Ashford), to help us raise more funds for more community events.
You can register to sell here. We have limited space so get in quick!
