Trade Me has opened a pop-up store in Tamaki Makaurau where Kiwis can refresh their clothes and get them auction-ready.

The pop-up coincides with Trade Me’s annual Circular Economy Report, which indicated that the average Kiwi had approximately 11 pieces of clothing they no longer want or wear, which could earn them $300 by clearing their wardrobes.

The pop-up, called ‘Secondhand Spin’ and housed at 242 Broadway in Newmarket, will only be available this weekend, (March 2-3). 

“Finding the next home for quality secondhand pieces provides a new life for garments that could otherwise go unworn or potentially end up in landfill,” said New Zealand fashion designer Juliette Hogan. 

“Presenting these pieces in a way that feels special to buyers is an important step to help achieve this”.

The pop-up Secondhand Spin will feature styling stations where consumers may steam, press, lint roll, and fragrance their clothes. On-site listing professionals will be available to advise attendees on how to prepare clothes for auction.

To encourage Kiwis to list their pre-loved items, Trade Me is giving free selling the site in its Clothing & Fashion category until March 10, allowing users to list and sell items for free.
