Sydneysiders love a market — especially one that specialises in top-notch pre-loved clothing. There's nothing like finding a quality item at a clothing market. There's the thrill of searching through the racks to stumble upon the piece, plus shopping secondhand and upcycled clothing is more sustainable than buying your clothes new. If this all sounds entirely relatable, Second Life Markets are a must-visit for you.

Usually, this hub of independent designers and secondhand clothing stalls pops up in Sydney once a season; however, with its autumn edition scheduled in May, it has just announced a one-off sundowner market on King Street in collaboration with Newtown favourite So Familia. Known for its 2000s-style pre-loved and deadstock clothing and accessories, So Familia is a go-to in the Inner West for those looking towards naughties-era Paris Hilton and Nicole Scherzinger for fashion inspo.

Over 30 stalls are lined up to take place as part of the mini market which, will run from 3–8pm on Sunday, April 2 at 426 King Street. There will also be pizza, drinks and tunes, ensuring the markets are a vibrant Sunday afternoon experience. Plus, it's dog-friendly, so make sure to bring along your fluffiest companions so they can stretch their legs before you head back to work for the week.

Entry is $5 and, in the sustainable spirit of the market, you're asked to bring your own reusable shopping bag(s) with you on the day.

The Second Life Markets run successful quarterly events across Sydney, Perth and, as of October, Melbourne. The seasonal events bring together local sellers and independent designers, as well as a heavy dose of good vibes. You can stay up to date with when each new city's next market is arriving at the Second Life Instagram.
