Head into Hull to find plenty of fine fashions at the vintage shopping event coming up
Anyone in the area who is looking to add a bit of retro style to their wardrobe will love this new shopping event set to arrive in Hull very soon.
The Vintage Weigh & Pay vintage sale is an unusual shopping experience that allows customers to take part in an affordable shopping spree by asking them to pay only for the weight of items that they wish to purchase.
The city centre of Hull is set to see this brand new and exciting shopping adventure make its way to The Guildhall on Saturday the 16th of September.
How the Vintage Weigh and Pay Sale works
The concept and execution of the Vintage Weigh and Pay Sale is actually pretty straightforward.
The idea is that tonnes of vintage clothing and accessories from decades like the 1960s right through to the more modern 1990s is brought along to the vintage sale and then customers are free to delve through the offerings and pick out what they would like to take home with them.
Each kilo costs a set price of £15 but with no minimum spend set or expected, shoppers are free and able to buy as little or as much of the vintage finds as they want to.
This means that especially thrifty fashion fans with an eye for a vintage bargain can potentially bag themselves a unique retro item for as little as just 75p.
One of the founders and organisers of the event, Lou Glover explains the appeal of the Vintage Weigh and Pay sale, stating that: “Our event offers something different from the normal shopping experience. It’s much more sustainable and ethical by giving vintage clothing a new lease of life,”
“It also allows people the opportunity to fill their wardrobes with pieces that are individual, stylish but also affordable.
“The rummaging element of the event makes it really exciting and allows shoppers to be more creative as they experiment and buy things that they normally wouldn’t even think to try.””
First organised by an award-winning events team in 2016, Vintage Weigh & Pay has gone on to become a fixed favourite with troops of retro loving customers as the event travels to a multitude of cities each weekend with simply rails upon rails of affordable and much sought after vintage fashion items and accessories.
Doors are set to open for the event in Hull at 11am with an additional early bird special hour for keen shoppers and bargain hunters costing just a £3 entry fee. General public entry on the day is from 12-5pm and costs just £1.50 for entry for the entire event.
