Vintage Sales, Recycling & Costume Re-homing

Gladrags started its sales venture in November 2018 in order to make space in our store and raise funds for our community work. We have grown this into a fully-fledged Ebay shop running alongside other real-life sale events. Our ethos of sustainability and re-cycling tailors nicely into passing on good quality second-hand clothing to give them another lease of life with a new owner. Completing the circle, we also offer un-sellable items to local schools and community groups with our 'Costume Re-homing' scheme.  

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.

25th Birthday Vintage Sale, May 2019

What a success! You picked up some of our best retro clothing, jewellery and fabric at bargain prices, and with 100% of proceeds coming to Gladrags, we raised an amazing £1200!

We committed most of this to funding our Storybox and dress-up play sessions with Chomp Moulsecoomb, a free holiday lunch club for families struggling to feed everyone at home out of term time. Thank you for being a part of that.
