// Affordable and environmentally friendly, trendy hipsters unite to collect, collate and say sayonnara to their pre-loved items.
When boutique market Take 2 was launched in June 2007 they filled vintage shoppers with glee. The Hawthorn-based market is designed with the intention of YOU going through your wardrobe, culling the items you no longer wear, hiring a stall and finding your old pieces a brand new home.
Essentially a market for you, by you, Take 2 Markets embraces women of all ages, shapes and sizes, provide accessories in a wide range of sizes, with everything from chain store bargains to vintage treasures and Australian or overseas designer fashions. Their latest market was part of the 2010 L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural Program, with local Melbourne designers encouraged to try their luck at a stall and see what sells. They combined the market with a Once Upon A Time fashion show, a homage to fashion and fairytales.
Take 2’s new day out is on Saturday 17 April where men’s wear also gets a look in. All the stalls are so far sold out, a sweet indication of what to expect. More details here.
