A blog reader directed me to a website called The Wardrobe Store. The Wardrobe Store is a retail marketplace offering buyers and sellers the chance to sell and/or purchase premium pre-loved and second hand designer labels at a fraction of their retail value. There is a retail store in Sydney's CBD (Central Business District) however many items are available to buy through their online marketplace.
"The Wardrobe Store is thriving little Soho in the heart of the Sydney CBD which carries over 3,000 stock items, LBD's, designer heels, handbags, accessories, jackets, dresses, coats, fabulous knits and a HOT Just Arrived rack...regulars know to run to the back of the store to see what goodies have just arrived! We received over 300 new items a week instore, and load upto 100 new items online each week.
Online you can click away in the comfort of your bedroom and buy and sell fabulous designer brands - we promote sustainable living by encouraging all Fashionista's to share their gorgeous fashion items around. If you are no longer wearing an item, and it fitst our SELLERS PROFILE, then you can load it on the website to sell, OR you can call our Butler service to drop by and pick it up. Our Butler service is currenlty only available in Sydney, but we will have this service up and running in Adelaide by June 2010.
We also feature Couture Vintage, and a range of French Childrens wear.
Our site also features: a Designer Wardrobe section with selected items from leading Australian and International designers, plus there is a Celebrity Wardrobe where proceeds from sold items will go to one of The Wardrobe Store’s chosen Charities. These include; The McGrath Foundation, National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Prostate Foundation, SANE Australia and The Leukaemia Research Foundation.
At the Wardrobestore.com we are committed to treading gently on the earth and reducing the carbon footprint by recycling barely worn labelled brands."
