Vintage Fashion Finds
90’s fashion is back!
Vintage labelled clothing is making a huge comeback as fashion is going back in time. It is hard to find these types of clothes as they haven’t been in stock for a long while, yet what people are looking for is in a high demand. Instead of the new stylish clothing that shops are releasing, a lot of people are instead going for the 90’s and 80’s look, bringing back mesh tops, vibrant coloured jackets and knee high boots. To be fair, clothing stores have taken that into mind and reintroduced a lot of styles from the past, but for those who are looking for authentic, vintage clothing, there isn’t a lot out there. Fortunately, there exist markets which have become increasingly popular, finding and selling previously owned clothes in a rather unique way.
Shopping for vintage clothing in Grimsby can be quite difficult, as we don’t have thrift shops that offer the range of clothing that other cities have, but the good news is one company have decided to bring the clothes to you. Preloved Kilo is a family-run business who travel around selling what people are looking for. A lot of it is branded, including big names like Champion and Tommy Hilfiger, and while this may seem like it would leave a gaping hole in your pocket, what makes this company special is that they charge you for the weight of your items, rather than the type. Yes, no matter what’s in there, Preloved Kilo only charges £15 per kilogram! They visit two cities every weekend so that everyone can take a look, but you have to be because once it’s gone, it’s gone. It’s a fantastic model that we can only hope grows as time goes on.
There are only a few dates left on this tour, but if you’re interested get yourself down to Leeds on 2 March 2019. You can find more information and additional dates on their Facebook page.
