We had such a great evening at our wardrobe capsule style event at The Loft Preloved with amazing style, colour tips and wardrobe advice from Marsha at Style Signature and Stella and Dot Jewellery brought in by lovely Elizabeth Golding @elizabethgoldingstyle. We cannot wait for our next event ! So watch this space !
Thank you to everyone that came to the evening and i’m sure you would agree that we all got some great tips and found new things that usually we would not have tried on and been surprised by how good it looked.
We find so many people come in and say, “That’s not my colour ” or ” That would not suit me ” and after persuading them to try it on ( go on please give it a try !) in our spacious, bedroom esq dressing room ! Viola what a transformation and 9 out of 10 times if it fits ( as some designers clothing sizes come up either too small or to big depending ) and if it’s the right cut , most customers end up buying that item that they previously turned down.
IF YOUR LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE TO COME FOR A TRADIONAL LUNCH, CUP OF COFFEE AND HOMEMADE CAKE OR EVEN A CHEEKY CHERRY PIE POP IN TO PISTOLS KICTHEN, BUT BEFORE YOU GO MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT THE LOFT NEXT DOOR FOR A PERFECT PURCHASE OR A BROWSE, YOU WILL BE HOOKED AT THE EXCLUSIVE CLOTHES, BAGS AND SHOES AND IN ORE OF THE SERVICE FROM THE FABULOUSE TRIO.
The first time I heard about The Loft Pre-Loved was when a friend messaged me and said “have you seen this shop that’s opened up locally – she sent me a link to their instagram page – Check them out, they sell pre-loved clothing. I think you would love it”. She had my attention straight away as I love these kinds of shops where you could stumble across a designer treasure for a bargain at any given time! Plus, I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for recycling my clothes – you do your bit for the environment whilst making yourself a bit of extra cash- a win win situation in my eyes! The shop décor is gorgeous and everything is beautifully laid out, with plenty of space to shop and a huge dressing/changing room.

I am based in Epsom, Surrey covering mainly the London and Surrey areas and have worked in fashion for the last 5 years. My passion has been fashion for as long as I can remember and I feel so lucky that I get to work in a job that I love and feel so passionate about.

So I am delighted to have partnered up with The Loft Pre-Loved after having met the owners recently Kiki and Bonnie to bring to you An Evening of Summer Style on Friday the 29th June. During the evening I will be chatting to you about the items you need to get you through the Summer in Style: including helping you to put together a capsule wardrobe, giving examples and talking through why each piece is important. It’s a key skill for dressing and shopping better. The Loft will provide all clothing and you will be able to shop all the items on the night.

After weeks of preparation we have finally opened our new shop and we are really pleased how it looks . We have a lovely little parade now in Walton on the Hill as two new businesses have opened also, so you can have a break for lunch or coffee, have some beauty treatment and then try on some beautiful clothes. Sounds like the perfect day to me !. You must try and visit the village if you haven’t already !
We specialise in high end second hand clothing and accessories and cater for Proms, Occasional wear , Ladies days, Derby day etc.
If you would like for us to sell your items why not get in touch and arrange an appointment only service where we can discuss prices etc.
Our Shop now consists of one side that caters for casual wear and the other for occasion wear and dresses.
We are always on the look out for that special something, be it a bag, hat, or dress. You will find a large selection of shoes, heels to buy and an amazing dressing room so why not use it to get the full picture of that perfect outfit, look . You can even bring in part of your own outfit to match with a pair of our amazing heels or hat / bag to finish it off !
I think you will find that this is a real gem of a shop and people in the village have already commented that this is now their favourite go to shop and don’t want the hassle of going to large shopping outlets that are expensive and don’t hold the range of stock, items that we have and we have something new in every day. While we are on the subject there are plenty of items in the shop that are new with tags and have never been worn so you will always find a bargain !
We are looking forward to the Walton on the Hill May pageant . If the weather holds up we are looking to expect around 2000 visitors and you will find all of the shop windows dressed in the theme of an English tea party . No pressure but there is a prize to be one for the best dressed shop. We Look forward to seeing you . Do pop in and say hi . Bonnie, Kiki & John

Well anyone really, as we have found our client base ranges from sixteen to eighty and for both genders, male and female. If you like trying to find something that’s not on the high street or something special that you could not justify spending hundreds of pounds on then Preloved is just for you. It’s great searching through our products and finding that perfect something special just for you and knowing that you are going to stand out from the crowd and have a more individual look.
Who brings clothes to a Preloved shop ?
Anyone who probably spent a lot of money on their items, have probably only worn it once or just purchased it for that special occasion, like a wedding. Some are mistake purchases and have never been worn or just never got around to taking it back to the shop as it did not fit . We then have the people that love the idea of trading up, they will sell their items and then buy that special something they have been waiting to find.
Whats great about Preloved is that fashion trends come and go in cycles and what was dated yesterday is probably going to be in trend tomorrow.
We resell clothes of the highest quality from high street labels to high end designer .
We Love “Preloved” Previously owned by someone else, may or may not have be worn but cared and loved for Just the same !
Ok so could be sold as second hand but that sounds like a car boot sale … Nothing wrong with car boot sales by the way !
When you pop in or order online from The Loft you can tell straight away that our shop is like a beautiful boutique and the items we have on display are immaculate and ready and waiting for a new home.
We sell a lot of items that come into us still with tags on and have never been worn but we still class them as Preloved – Well they soon will be ! …..
We all buy things that are forgotten about and lurk in the depths of the wardrobe.
If you would like us to sell, upcycle your unwanted items please contact us through the Contact us page or if there is a particular item you are looking for Kiki and Bonnie are on hand to help !
