Where to buy and sell preloved fashion in Sydney

Got a pile of clothes you know you’ll never wear again? Don’t throw them away! Here’s where you can turn that preloved fashion into some extra cash…

Kirribilli Markets

Where: Alfred Street South, Milsons Point, NSW 2060

When: Every second Sunday and every fourth Saturday of the month 8:30am – 3pm

With 220 stalls and beautiful views of the Harbour Bridge, you can expect big crowds and even bigger bargains. The General Market takes place on the fourth Saturday of every month and the Art, Design and Fashion Market takes place on the second Sunday of every month. Both allow second-hand fashion stalls. Some sellers clear out threads from designers such as Sass and Bide and Ellery for less than $100. TV star Sally Obermeder had a stall to sell items for charity. If it’s good enough for Sal, it’s good enough for us!

Register your details on their website to be alerted to the next rummage!

Bondi Markets

Where: Bondi Beach Public School, Campbell Parade

When: Every Sunday, 10am-4pm

Cost of stall: From $75

Situated just a few steps away from the iconic Bondi Beach, these markets have a laid-back, trendy vibe. As well as preloved fashion, there’s stalls packed with recycled homewares and antiques. It’s also a starting spot for higher end designer start-ups, so it attracts a fashionable crowd.

Surry Hills Markets

When: First Saturday of the month, 8am-4pm

Cost of stall: From $70

Vintage gear and preloved fashion are the lifeblood of this hipster market. Around 60 stalls all take up a central position in this central suburb and there’s a buzzy, relaxed vibe to browsing.

Rozelle Markets

Where: Rozelle Public School, Darling Street

When: Every Saturday and Sunday, 9am-3pm

Cost of stall: From $70

These markets take place on both Saturday and Sunday, giving you twice the chance to make some cash – or bag a bargain – every weekend. Renowned for their second-hand goodies, it’s definitely worth a trip to this inner west market if you’re looking for quirky and original items. And if you’re wanting to clear out your cupboards to make some quick cash, they encourage one-off ‘garage sale’ bookings, offering a discount if you book online.

Savvy seller tips

  • If registering a stall is a little pricey, split the cost with a friend. You’ll have more fun andget your money’s worth.
  • Make sure you have the set-up essentials – a table, clothes racks, coat hangers, a mirror and a float of spare change – $100 in notes and coins is recommended.
  • No one wants to buy clothes that aren’t clean or are in need of some TLC. Wash your items, mend any hems, missing buttons and minor tears.
