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.

Because we love the festive season almost as much as second-hand stuff, we’re on the hunt to find Brighton’s best vintage shop Christmas window, with a fantastic promotional package for the winner!
We’re looking for stunning Christmas window displays from vintage, second-hand, repro and charity shops in Brighton & Hove and will be putting all submissions to Vintage Brighton Facebook fans to decide which is the most enticing. The winner will be awarded a promotional post on www.vintagebrighton.com as well as one month’s free side-bar advertising on the site during January to help give business a kick start in 2014.
All entrants will also be featured on the Vintage Brighton Facebook page and the best, as judged by Vintage Brighton editor Jo-ann Fortune, will be featured in a round-up post on the site.
If you want to show off your window display, simply e-mail a photograph to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Christmas window’ in the subject line by midday Sunday 8 December. Your image must be at least 575 pixels wide and you must own the copyright.
