How does the clothes pricing work?
You can choose every kind of item or garment you like and then bring it to the weighing station. There, one of our colleagues weigh your clothes and see how many kilos you have. Depending on that you will know the price that you are going to pay. If the overall weight of your items doesn’t amount to 1 kilo you will pay less, e.g. if the overall weight of your items is 850g, you will pay for 850g.
There are two kinds of tickets. What is the difference?
We decide to have two different kinds of tickets. Early Bird Tickets are the first 100 tickets sold for each event and are free, whilst Vintage Lovers Tickets cost 3 EUR.
What can I get for 1 kilo?
You can get many unique pieces of vintage and pre-loved clothing and garments such as coats, trench coats, bomber jackets, crazy shirts, jeans, pants, shoes, leather bags, belts and much more.With a kilo of clothes, you can get a full and stunning outfit!
Where do the clothes come from?
Our supply chain starts with clothing waste. This waste is then brought to recycling warehouses of which we currently have 35 in our supply chain, located everywhere from Canada toNorway, but mainly in Europe. Our Dutch supplier has trained people to select clothes according to long-refined quality standards which results in him picking ca. 1% of the clothing waste that the 35 recycling companies gather.He then washes, repairs, and hand-folds the selected items before they are sent from Amsterdam to our warehouse in Mainz.
What are the Covid regulations for the events?
Currently, for most of our events in Italy the Super Green Pass is required, in Germany most of our events are 3G or just mask events. But, as you know, the regulations are changing, so stay tuned and read the updated information on the events on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
