Refashion Vancouver was born out of that feeling of exasperation that comes from staring at a closet full of clothes but feeling like you have nothing to wear. Enter Refashion Vancouver, the event to provide a venue for those of us with a serious shopping habit to make some cash back on our regretted purchases.
Everyone has them – those pieces of clothing that we thought were a good idea at the time, only to realize shortly afterward that we weren’t in our right minds; the ones that don’t fit. Everyone has had similar experiences of beautiful brand new clothes hidden away in the recesses of our closets and never worn. And for every one of those stories, there is someone out there who is dying to re-fresh their wardrobe without breaking the bank.
Refashion Vancouver is not a swap meet and it’s not a flea market – it’s not about swapping one piece for another or selling used clothes – it’s about selling the stuff that you never wear that’s brand new or nearly new (their guideline is that if you’ve worn it more than 3 times, you can’t sell it at Re-Fashion). The idea is people who live in apartments don’t have the ability to have a garage sale, and it’s hard to reach the fashion-shoppers. So the organizers saw the need and decided to produce an event that brings all the fashion-lovers of Vancouver together in one place.
What: Community Shopping Extravaganza – a place to sell unworn clothes, shop for new styles, and glam up with free services such as manicures and makeovers.
Where: Yaletown Roundhouse Exhibition Hall
When: April 18, 2015 – 10am-5pm for shoppers, 9am-6pm for sellers.
