Walk a shopping mile
RAISING money for charity while clearing out your wardrobe is now possible, as the first Pre-loved Market takes place in Airlie Beach at the PCYC.
Organisers of the event Tracy and Kendell Davies are inviting all members of the community to consider organising a stall of pre-loved goodies for their market on Saturday, November 14.
"Any women's clothes of any sizes, shoes, hats, bags and jewellery. Any items of clothing or accessories that are of good quality would be perfect sellers," Kendell said.
Kendell said she organised the market after finding it difficult to sell her clothing through Facebook.
"I put the question out there, and I got a huge response," she said.
"I don't want to take business away from op-shops, this is just for those needing a new summer wardrobe while cleaning out their old."
The markets will be raising money through stall fees and a gold coin donation entry fee.
"We will be supporting the local suicide prevention charity A Mile in Their Shoes," Kendell said, adding that she lost a classmate to suicide last year.
"It seems to be a problem in the community and I feel it's a very good cause to support."
Stall fees will be $10 and bookings are essential. A gold coin entry is required for shoppers as well.
The Pre-loved Markets takes place at Airlie Beach PCYC on November 14.
To book a stall, phone Kendell on 0418 854 986.
