French Fripe Group is bringing its affordable, European-style clothing hauls to Sydney once more. The sustainability-minded Vintage Kilo Sale aims to help combat waste within the fashion industry by finding new homes for a heap of pre-loved items. Whether you opt to upcycle, thrift or keep the item as is is up to you.

Following the success of its 2023 event in Sydney, which drew in a crowd of over 5,000 shoppers, the fashion event is now offering another round of imported vintage items for sale — and this time, it's embarking on a tour across the state.

How the event works is pretty straightforward — take your pick from the hundreds of secondhand pieces up for grabs, then weigh your haul on the scales provided. Each kilogram of clothing is priced at $50, so you could opt for up to two whole kilos of clothes for $100, or five for $250 and so on. The selection on offer is handpicked and includes a wide-spanning range of high-quality and mainly imported fashion.

If you're in Sydney, you have two chances to get your hands on some pre-loved gems. If you don't want to risk missing out on the best loot, get priority access by booking a $5 ticket to the VIP drop, on Friday, June 28 from 5pm at 29 Smith Street in Marrickville. Alternatively, try your luck on Saturday, June 29. The sale will kick off at 8am and run until 4pm, so you'll want to get in early for your pick of the lot — although racks will be replenished throughout the day. If you want to plan ahead, you can also opt to book yourself into the priority lines for $2.75 to ensure you don't miss out.

After Sydney, the sale then heads south for a full weekend. If you're a Wollongong local or are keen on a road trip, a VIP drop will be available from 4.30pm to 6.30pm on Friday, July 19, ahead of a two-day general access pop-up on July 20–21. The sale then heads to Newcastle, which'll score a VIP drop on Friday, August 2, before a weekend-long sale on August 3–4.
