Grab some fashionable pre-loved threads this winter
Rug up and head down to the historic Seaworks in Williamstown this June. Keep some cash in your pocket and a couple of reusable bags, because Melbourne Frock Swap is back in town, just in time for you to grab some fashionable winter threads for the cool months ahead.
Melbourne Frock Swap 14 June 2015
Melbourne Frock Swap is one of the newest indoor second-hand markets in the city, dedicated to women's clothing and accessories. (Sorry guys, no men's clothing this time, although menfolk and children do get to enter the market for free!)
You will find a mix-bag of over 70 second-hand market stalls at each Frock Swap, from everyday folk clearing their wardrobes and making some extra cash, to vintage clothing traders. You will find all sorts of fashion to buy, not just frocks, but pants, coats, shoes, scarves, bags, tops, shirts, skits, and a whole lot more.
Additionally, special guest appearances will take place at the June market, including the Birney & Co crew with their mobile vintage tram retail store, as well as Bron from Style Tonic running personal stylist sessions, and Nichola from the Handmakers Factory running DIY workshops. There will also be mending and alteration stations so people can bring things along and use the machines at the market.
A market isn't a market without coffee, and Steve from Coffee Van - Caffeine Lab will be joining the Melbourne Frock Swap Team this June, providing hot beverages to busy shoppers. Hungry tummies will be filled by Captain Cannonball's hearty filled rolls, served from their truck o' goodness, returning to Melbourne Frock Swap this winter; and Twins Pantry, offering roasted nuts.
The market will run from 10am until 4pm, so there will be plenty of time to shop, and at the end of each market, stall holders donate a large portion of their unsold goods to the Red Cross Shops, so each Melbourne Frock Swap also happens to be charitable, too.
Winter doesn't mean you have to say goodbye to your most fashionable outfits, and with Melbourne Frock Swap happening on the 14 June, you will be able to leave Williamstown with a new-to-you set of warm threads, all for a fraction of what you'd spend if you were shopping retail.
