Vintage and pre-loved are two types of fashion that you would least associate with a shopping mall, yet Westfield Southland broke down that barrier offering 15 stallholders the chance to offload their vintage and pre-loved wares to fashion shoppers. Stalls were offered at $50, with all proceeds going to Bayside Special Developmental School.

What a pleasure to browse second hand goods within a shopping centre that is usually reserved for high street retail. Some of Melbourne's popular blogger's were present, including Phoebe Montague (Lady Melbourne) Trish Hunter (Trish Hunter Finds) and Candice DeVille (Super Kawaii Mama).

It is difficult to know whether the event turned out to be a success or not, as I arrived quite early in the day.
One can only hope that the first Thrifty Fashionista Market at Westfield Southland proved successful enough to hold similar markets in other shopping malls around Melbourne and beyond.
