THE biggest vintage clothing kilo seller in the UK is coming to Winchester this weekend.

The Worth the Weight sale will take place on Sunday June 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Winchester Guildhall.

Around 60 rails of vintage clothing from a wide range of categories, styles and brands will be available to buy for £20 per kilogram.

The company is bringing nine tons of clothing from the 1960s to the 1990s to the site where shoppers will receive a biodegradable bag in which to put their selection, ready to be weighed.

You only pay for what you buy so if your items weigh less than a kilo you pay less than £20.

Worth the Weight was created in 2018 to fight against fast fashion by selling second-hand fashion at affordable prices.

Marketing assistant for Worth the Weight, Rowan Wolowacz said: “In the UK last year, 31% of clothing ended up in landfills.

“That’s approximately 350,000 tons of clothing. Our mission is to divert that clothing from the landfill, slow down the trend cycle and provide a sustainable alternative to fast fashion.

“We do this by providing quality vintage clothing from around the world that you may not find anywhere else at an accessible price.”

Tickets available from £3 on the Eventbrite website.
