Preloved Vintage Kilo Sale at the Colston Hall on Sunday 10th February 2019Posted on: 06 Feb 2019
Charity begins not only at home but with a jolly good rummage, which is exactly what you'll be able to do - and bag (quite literally) yourself a mountain of bargains - when Colston Hall in Bristol holds a Preloved Vintage Kilo Sale on Sunday 10th February 2019.
Vintage, preloved, shabby chic, retro, second-hand; call it what you like. One man (or woman's) junk is another person's treasure, and chances are you'll come away a few choice garments which you'll be able to re-purpose quite nicely.
Premise is as simple as it is ingenious: get a big bag on entry and feverishly work your way through all the clobber and garb strung up on racks and rails, piling in anything and everything that takes your fancy until that bag's fit to burst with an assortment of salvaged sartorial goodies.
Get it weighed (scales will also be dotted around so you can gauge how much you're spending), pay up, walk out, try on, and marvel at your well-picked jamboree of new (or should that be old?) acquired attire.
An excellent way to recycle old clothes and give them a new home (and wardrobe), the Preloved Vintage Kilo Sale takes place from 10am to 5pm. Entry is £1.50. You can find out more here.
Colston Hall is located at Colston St, Bristol, BS1 5AR. Tel. 01709 208514
