Nine tonnes of vintage clothing to go on sale at Meca

By Barrie Hudson - 21 September 2023


Worth the Weight returns to Swindon's Meca on Sunday 8 October.

The Sheffield-based company was founded in 2018 as a way of fighting fast fashion, and has since travelled the length and breadth of the country with tonnes of vintage stock every weekend.

The Meca sale will feature nine tonnes of handpicked vintage and pre-owned stock for people to rummage through, including a range of Autumn coats and jackets. 

A Worth the Weight spokesperson said: “Swindon is always a great place to come this time of year, knitwear is always very popular, so we’ve made sure to stock up for all the sustainable fashion pioneers.

"We’ll also be capping heavier items at £20. Even if it weighs over a kilo, you’ll never pay more than £20 for one item. Simply point out heavy items to your server at the till to redeem the discount.

"There will be 60 rails of clothing, where shoppers can pick and mix from the best denim, sports, ladies' fashion, men’s fashion, outerwear and accessorises and pay on the scales at the end. 

"It costs £20 per kilo, with prices starting as little as £1. It’s a cost-effective way of getting bulk sustainable clothing and helping the environment at the same time."

Entry is £3 for early bird and £2 after, and further details can be found at
