Preloved Shopping in South Yarra

Preloved shopping is about buying items that someone else has owned (and possibly loved) before. The items may have been used (heavily or lightly) or they may be in new mint condition. ... A benefit of shopping preloved often means we spend less in total dollar amounts too.

There are interesting items that cannot be found or purchased in stores that sell only new merchandise.  They might be items that were only available new many years, even decades ago (vintage and retro items), or perhaps even just a season ago. Preloved shopping offers the opportunity to shop consciously and discover ‘finds’ – unique and interesting pieces that aren’t available in the big shopping centres. 

These items have much potential:

  • Combine them with existing wardrobe pieces – mix and match across eras and genres to create a unique look.
  • Re-purpose, upstyle, transform and create entirely new items from.  Turn a silk jacket into a scarf, a dress into a tunic, a printed shirt into a purse.  Just avoid the pigs’ ears – they make very poor silk purses.
  • Add pizzazz, interest and variety to a wardrobe that has become a little stale or dull.
