Gladrags' Sales

Gladrags started its sales venture in November 2018 in order to make space plus raise funds for our community work. Our ethos of sustainability and re-cycling tailors nicely into passing on good quality second-hand items to give them another lease of life with a new owner.

We have grown this into a fully-fledged Ebay shop running alongside other real-life sale events.  Mostly we sell vintage clothes, accessories, fabric (deadstock by the metre & remnants); also haberdashery, occasionally props and sewing machines. .

We also offer un-sellable items to the community via our 'Costume Re-homing' scheme. For more info click here>

Unique retro treats are always on hand at our online store: ebay/shop

Previous Sale Events

Christmas Market Sat 4 Dec 2021

The Gladrags' Christmas market returns! We raised £1100 at our winter market selling vintage clothes, retro fabric and wares from local businesses & independent makers. 

Funds from this sale enable us to continue providing subsidised or free costume hire to local schools, community groups, and supports our work with out-reach projects.

Thank you everyone for your support!

July 2021  Re-Skill. Re-Use. Re-Fashion

Sew Fabulous hosted this amazing event celebrating all things to do with Fashion Textiles and Sustainability. Gladrags were there promoting our community work and volunteer programme, plus we ran a very popular craft activity. Sales of retro fabric remnants and vintage clothes totalled just over £400 raised - Thank you!

December 2020

Thank you to all who came to our Christmas Market, we raised an amazing £2000! A fantastic Christmas present towards our charitable work that will greatly help us to be ready to support communities when we can open fully again. It was a pleasure to welcome local craft-makers to join us selling their wares, a first for a Gladrags sale event.
