Take2Market Recycled Womens Wear, Melbourne
Monday, July 26, 2010
Melbourne, the 'fashion capital of Australia', is home to an abundance of fabulous second hand clothing. We are privileged to live in a city with such an array of vintage stores, op shops, and pre-loved markets for the frugal fashionista to explore.
There is a pre-loved market a friend told me about, the Take 2 Markets held in Hawthorn Town Hall.
"Take 2 Markets was launched in June 2007 we filled a major gap in the recycled fashion sector. Take 2 Markets has become Melbourne’s premier recycled fashion event, and women from all over Victoria have embraced our fun, affordable and environmentally friendly way of buying and selling quality women’s wear. Take 2 Markets celebrates women of all ages, shapes and sizes, and you’ll find fabulous preloved (and new!) clothing and accessories in a wide range of sizes, with everything from chain store bargains to vintage treasures and Australian or overseas designer fashions. You don’t have to spend a fortune to look fantastic."
Some quotes from buyers and sellers of Take 2 Markets:
"Im really impressed with the standard of the market. And I'm really looking forward to being a seller this time round!" Carly shopper turned stallholder
"We attended the last market at the Hawthorn Town Hall and were very impressed by the set up and the variety." Linda N – Shopper Nov 09
"Just a quick note to say what a great day I had yesterday. I felt the market was exceptionally well organised, and in a great location. I made $1450 which kind of blew me away." Sophia D - Stallholder Jul 09
"Mum and I had a fantastic time last weekend, our first time as stall holders at the Take 2 Markets! We sold so much of our stuff" Amy G – Stallholder Nov 09
