Seek & Revive Vintage Kilo Sale

Last Saturday I went over to the Seek & Revive Vintage Kilo sale at The Oval Space East London.
It was only the second time the event had been held there, I had read great things about it before hand so I thought I would get involved in some thrifty fun. The Oval Space is a warehouse building tucked behind a main high road, it's great location for a shopping event like this. I arrived there just after the doors opened at 11am and went straight inside to rummage through the stacks of clothing.

Inside there were lots rails of full of second-hand and vintage clothing. I spotted rails dedicated to vintage jeans, varsity jackets, floral shirts and woolly jumpers - this place is a haven for vintage lovers. It's a really cool idea to attract people who love recycling clothing and for those like me who are open to trying out a different approach to shopping. I enjoyed looking through the quirky pieces, wondering who wore them first and how?

If you like people watching like me, this is also a good place to spot some cool streetstyle. A couple of the girls I saw picked up some unique pieces including box bags and tea dresses in good condition. I think if you get there super early you’ll pick up the best stuff.


Outside the space there is also a cute spot for people to grab a refreshment, chill out and head back inside for some more shopping.

The way the kilo sale works is you can buy as many clothes and accessories as you want at £15 a kilo - pretty purse-friendly don't you think? That works out to be about four or five items all together. I didn’t find that many things to buy so I didn’t purchase anything but I would definitely go back as it’s nice to try something different every once and a while.

Seek & Revive is held every month the next pop up sale is at Concrete 16th June. Find out more about it here.
