The biggest Another Woman’s Closet will take place on November 18 with the support of Noosa Council. In order to support these women and Noosa’s environmental pact with its residents, Another Women’s Closet is collaborating with National Recycling Week to bring a clothing market to Noosa Leisure Centre. It will be the largest preloved clothing and accessories sale of the year on the Sunshine Coast.
Another Woman’s Closet founder Jacinta Richmond said stall holders can expect big profits. “A curated preloved clothing market means on average over the last three years, 80 per cent of stall holders will make in excess of $300 per stall,” she said. For National Recycling Week, Another Woman’s Closet is also allowing menswear to be sold at stall spaces. The same rules apply – no stains, no damage, no zips or buttons needing replacing, no hems needing fixing, washed, hung and displayed on garment racks. “It is important that everyone involved has the opportunity to look after our environment,” said Jacinta. “This is by selling instead of sending to landfill and by purchasing great garments at very low prices.”
According to Ragtrader Magazine, one in three women prefer to buy pre-loved clothing, shoes and accessories over new, with women who have sold second hand items making an average of $982 from Australia’s second hand economy. Gumtree spokesperson Kirsty Dunn also revealed that there are more than 350,000 clothing and jewellery listings onsite. Another Woman’s Closet X National Recycling Week takes place on Sunday 18 November at Noosa Leisure Centre from 8am. Entry is free to shop
