Pre-WORN Rack Sale
The Market Folk hosts hundreds of rack sellers each year across our market locations. We are proud to offer a pre-worn aspect at our events and have seen some serious gems given a second chance on life! Clear out your wardrobe and earn some extra cash, alternatively shop the rack sale and never pay retail again!
Our rack sale is not your average pre-worn gathering, we like to keep things simple - one simple rack and accessories stored underneath.

What can I sell - is it just clothing?
Good quality pre-loved clothing, footwear and accessories. No children's clothing, underwear, swimwear, homewares are allowed. Remember a well thought out and not overstuffed rack performs much better as shoppers can see each piece and not be overwhelmed, resulting in more profits for you!

The rack sale is purely for preloved wardrobes, businesses are not permitted to use the rack sale to sell new stock. You need to register for a creative/ business stall. If you purchase a ticket and we see your selling new stock (or handmade stock) you will be asked to pack down.
How can I display items other than clothing garments?
All clothing items are to be hung unfortunately for safety reasons we cannot have piles of clothes on the floor, you may wish to bring along some hanging storage to display your shoes and accessories or you can have one neat line of shoes and a small basket under your rack. No tables are permitted at the rack sale. There are no other areas to have tables of preloved items.
Can I bring some suitcases to sell my extra items out of?
Unfortunately no suitcases are permitted at the rack sale - rack areas are only big enough for your single clothing rack! The space under your rack may permit space for a small basket and a row of shoes.
