The Preloved Kilo event is returning to Ipswich this weekend at the Town Hall. Instead of being individually priced, items are sold by weight. You simply pick up a basket, browse through six tonnes of stock and pay at the end.

A spokesman from the company behind the fair said: “At Preloved Kilo we source and hand-pick every single one of our items from all around the world and deliver them to you at unbeatable prices. We offer discounted rates pre-the-event for those keen shoppers and only charge £12 per kilo however, the normal price is £15.

“If you want to spend less that’s fine, we also have smaller scales and can weigh items individually so how much you spend is entirely up to you. We tour the UK and visit two different cities each weekend with our unique array of vintage attire so we will never be too far away.”
