Slow Fashion for Kids (ex-Little Beans preloved) are opening a permanent shop in Barnet on Wednesday. The store, located at 162 Barnet High street, will offer a selection of good quality items for kids aged 0 till 8.
The new shop is part of a growing number of new stores selling preloved kids clothes. Mid-January, Re-kindle took up a permanent retail space inside Wembley Park Market located near Wembley Designers outlet and, on Oxford Street, Selfridge’s is about to start selling preloved designers clothes as part of its partnership with Vestiaire Collective.
According to the FT,
‘From March 16, for three months, the online retailer Kidswear Collective will run a pop-up close to the Burberry and Gucci children’s ranges, giving shoppers a chance to grab some of the same designer brands, pre-worn and significantly cheaper.’
Those brick and mortar shops and pop up sales - such as the one organised by Family Affaire this week (see The Events section) - give us twice the opportunity to reduce our carbon emissions by avoiding the manufacturing of new clothes ➕ polluting delivery services.
We need more of those shops and spaces for secondhand pop-up events on our high streets. 🙏🏻
