Dear Gladys, a not for profit store, stocks quality vintage & contemporary clothing, accessories and homewares!


A fun event to satisfy a woman's basic need to shop and be a do-gooder at the same time. All you need to do is shop, shop, shop. Too easy! If you love vintage and contemporary clothing, and retro home-wares, this is the place to be.

Dear Gladys is having their very first Online Store Pop-Up Event in their new home at the historic Queen Victoria Women's Centre, so hop on down. Share some bubbly with the Gladys Girls and get tactile with the clothing. Here's your chance to touch, feel, try on, and rummage through their online range in person.

Their website is also pretty interesting with some DIY projects on the page as well as recipes, so check it out from top to toe.



As a bonus, they will be bringing out some special new goodies along with some fabulous SALE items. Keep an eye on their Facebook page to keep updated. I noted that if you 'like' and share their page on FB with all your friends, you're in with a chance to win a $50 voucher to spend at this pop-up event, so hurry.



You may be surprised to learn that all the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to support Dear Gladys' parent organisation, Fitted For Work. In fact, Dear Gladys plays a huge role in funding programs run by Fitted For Work who has since 2005, helped over 15,000 disadvantaged women in Australia, get back into the workforce.



A not-for-profit organisation, their fitting slogan seems to be 'never go back'. The first of their kind in Australia, they have helped abused women re-enter the workforce by providing them with mentoring, interviewing training and such like and even clothing them for free in work appropriate clothes through their personal outfitting service. Read their 2014 Annual Appeal Newsletter and click on the red 'donate' icons on the page to help out. It's NEVER TOO LATE to help.
