Pop up shop helps to turn Preloved fashion to Reloved
A new shop will be popping up in Liberty Wharf for ten days only, offering designer brands without the designer price tag, with all profits going to Jersey Hospice Care.
Called Preloved to Reloved, the pop up shop will be open between Saturday 20 July and Sunday 28 July, selling new and nearly new quality clothes and accessories at a price that won’t break the bank. Originally set up online earlier this year, it already has a loyal following of customers who love to grab a bargain.
Julie Jubb is delighted with the response she has received already. She said, ‘Every week, 11 million items of clothing end up in landfill. Choosing to buy preloved clothes is kinder to the environment and your wallet, getting more wear out of clothes which might otherwise only be worn once and then thrown away. By opening our pop up shop, we are enabling beautiful brands to be reloved, while also raising valuable funds for Jersey Hospice Care, a charity that has touched the lives of so many people in Jersey.’
Emelita Robbins, Chief Executive at Jersey Hospice Care, said: ‘For a little while now we have been trialing selling our quality preloved clothing donations on line, this has proved very popular. The pop up shop is in a great location, accessible to everyone and will allow those after a “canny buy” to see and touch the items for themselves. We have a lot of stock and always pleased to receive more.
‘We are hugely grateful to everyone that donates; every penny made by our shops goes to providing free care to people when they need it most. Since 2008, the number of patients we support has gone from 167 to over 1,000 last year. And our biggest source of income comes from the sale of donated items.’
The pop up shop will also be selling Jersey Hospice Care’s Million Pound Lottery tickets. With fewer than 1,000 tickets left, this is an ideal location to buy a ticket and the designer outfit to wear if you win the jackpot!
