Fashion and vintage

Norwich Vintage Kilo Sale, St Andrew’s Plain, October 2, 10am-4pm

There will be nine tonnes of handpicked stock to rummage through at this vintage sale with a twist.

Instead of items being priced per item, you fill a bag with pre-loved finds and pay for what it weighs.

Pick and mix men’s and women’s vintage clothing from the 60s to the 90s - we can’t believe that the 90s is vintage now, it feels like yesterday.

Stock is replenished all day, so the rails will be full, no matter what time you arrive.

Early bird entry tickets for admission at 10am and 11am cost £3 via Eventbrite and general admission tickets for noon onwards cost £2.
