Vintage Preloved Shopping

Elene Marsden aka Preloved Chica

I've always loved second hand clothes and the feeling of excitement when you find a designer label bargain. At the start of 2015, I bought a lovely pair of boots from the Sue Ryder charity shop in Ipswich.

By the time I'd got home, I'd decided to broadcast a live YouTube video sharing my purchases.

BBC Radio 4's Saturday Live sent a reporter to find out more about my Preloved Chica videos. Here's the interview

But what really floats my boat is interviewing others about their purchases and their fashion tips for buying clothes from charity/thrift stores, car boots and vintage markets.

Well done Elene Marsden. Great promotion for recycled fabrics
