How to :: Successfully Shop the TVM Rack Sales!

Oct 26, 2020 | How to, Rack Sale

At each TVM event, you can rummage through our curated line-up of pre-loved designer and vintage Rack Sales to find incredibly stylish, exciting pieces for your wardrobe.

Personally, the thrill of the rummage is one of our favourite parts of market day.

Byron Bay based Influencers and style queens Lisa Danielle (@lisadanielle__) and Emily Yates (@emelinaah) are regular sellers at our TVM Rack Sales, stating they are a ‘ritual cleanse’!

Sammi Burley, a head designer for a prominent global fashion brand says “I have been coming to the TVM Rack Sales for 10 years! I love the people, the music, the vibe – it’s awesome.”

In Part 1 of our How To Rack Sale series, we give you tips on how to successfully SHOP the TVM Rack Sales:

Where to start:

With up to 40-curated Racks during peak season, it can be hard to know where to start.

Our number one tip - First in, best dressed! Rack Sales kick off at the commencement of each market and that means in order to get first dibs on the good stuff, you need to be there ready to shop at 8:30am (preferably with a double shot flat white already under your belt!)

Look for a rack that speaks to you - what fabrics or colours pop? Is there a list of labels at the front of the rack that catches your eye? Is there a vendor that looks uber-stylish and rocking a similar vibe to your own – chances are he or she has plenty more where that came from. Shop it, stat!

There’s always a rack to suit everyone’s taste, so find yours and head there first for the best like-minded finds.

Be prepared:

Be sure to have your market bag in tow, to stash your finds and ensure your hands are free for more rummaging.  Our TVM giant totes are HUGE and the perfect Rack Sale buddy, shop it here or at our info tent on market day.

It’s also a good idea to have cash at the ready, although many of our Rack Sale’rs have contact-less purchasing available now too (they’re a smart bunch!).

Prior to market day check the Insta accounts of any local stylish folk you follow, they may mention they’re attending the TVM Rack Sales in advance and then you can head straight there on market day.

Be kind:

Be respectful of fellow rack salers and sellers, smile, take your time - we’re all there for a good time.

When you’re done:

Make sure you share your finds with us on Instagram, we’d absolutely love to see your purchases – it makes our day!
