To Be Worn Again kilo sale tips

To Be Worn Again’s Worthing warehouse will host two vintage kilo sales on 28 & 29 April and 26 & 27 May, offering hundreds of women’s and men’s vintage at just £15 a kilo.

Here, TBWA insider Olivia shares her top five tips for getting the most from the buy-by-weight event.

1. Go through all of the rails as there are always hidden gems to be found. My favourite items have ranged from an amazing 1980s wedding dress to classic Levis. In the winter we usually have a rail of fur coats as well.

2. Get there early. There will always be good finds, but traders tend to try and beat everyone else to them!

3. Ask the hosts to save a rail for you so you don’t have to lug armfuls of clothes around with you as you browse. These rails are kept near the scales and pay desk so we can keep an eye on them and it’s clear which are for reserved items as they have a mix of garments – the shopping rails are separated by product type.
