Great opportunity to purchase a well-established women’s pre-loved fashion market event which has been operating in Melbourne since 2014.
The market/event currently utilises a venue in the western suburbs of Melbourne, however, it can be run from any suitable venue across the city, state, or Australia.
If you're well organised and a good communicator who has an eye for detail, this is a great part-time project.
No ongoing leases, each market runs as a standalone event.
Owner/operator, run from home office.
Reason for Sale
Consolidating business interests.
About the Business
The business is a well established and much-anticipated market event which facilitates the buying and selling of women's pre-loved fashion and accessories. While regular retail may be struggling, the second-hand sector is thriving and will continue to hold a place in the retail environment, especially in a tight economy. The buying and selling of pre-loved fashion is the fastest growing sector of the fashion industry.
Savvy shoppers at our markets love to refresh their wardrobes regularly for a fraction of retail price. Even if something has been gently worn, the shopper's friends, colleagues and Instagram account hasn’t seen this ‘new to you’ outfit before! Our shoppers also hold great value in recycling fashion and reducing landfill and are all ages; from teenagers to ladies in their 80s and 90s.
Stallholders at our markets consist of ladies who are having a wardrobe clear out and enjoying the opportunity to have a fun day out while making some cash, as well as return stallholders who are fashion on-sellers and for whom markets are a part of their business model.
The business consists of all the Intellectual Property and Goodwill required to run the market events, including a database of stallholders and shoppers, domain name, purpose build e-commerce website for stallholder bookings, social media accounts with over 8K followers, advertising and promotion lists and contacts, operations manual, registered business name, trademark (name). The current owner will be available to help with the transition of ownership. The business carries no stock or inventory, other than basic event supply materials (signage, etc).
Opportunities to expand the business are considerable and can be discussed further with interested parties.
The market event started in Melbourne's western suburbs in 2014.
