Just love this store.  Great place to sell those items you no longer wear and to pick up some other lovely pieces.

I was very happy with this service! Minna and Satu are lovely to deal with, a great way to make some extra cash and clear some cupboard space! Will definitely be back to rent another rack!

Sell your quality fashion and designer clothes

Is your wardrobe bursting at its seams? Need to clear up space in your wardrobe, or make some cash? The rent-a-rack system, invented in Finland, has an answer to both your needs. If you have clothes you no longer wear, but they are too valuable to give to charity, and selling at the markets or at a garage sale is too much hassle, you can now rent a rack in one of the VENLA stores across Sydney and run your own micro business for a fortnight or more.

At VENLA, you simply rent a rack and showcase your best fashion. You set the prices and you pick which items to sell. We provide price tags, hangers and merchandising, you provide the clothes and accessories. Each of our stores has trained staff there to advise you on how to maximise your earnings, but the decision is yours.

Buy secondhand quality fashion

Are you on the hunt for a secondhand Max Mara coat? Searching for a preloved Zimmerman dress? Scouring online marketplaces for a vintage Gucci bag? Well, VENLA could well have the items you’re looking for. With three stores located in some of Sydney’s most desirable suburbs, VENLA has a high turnover of designer clothes and accessories as well as great quality fashion from other main street brands.

The racks at VENLA are only there for two weeks, and we get new racks in every day, so you will always find something new and exciting in each of the stores. There’s always a chance to find the secondhand designer dress, jacket, shoes, handbags or pants on your want list. If you’re after something in particular, keep an eye on our Instagram channel for the latest items for sale across our stores. 

Join the sustainable fashion revolution

The rise of fast fashion has been disastrous on the planet. The number of fashion items purchased has doubled every year over the past 15 years. However, 85% of all clothing bought now ends up in landfills or incinerators. Sadly there is no real textile recycling scheme in Australia yet. This is where recycled fashion comes in.

Too often unwanted clothes are dumped on charities, wasting valuable time and resources. The Nordic ethos of re-using quality products provides fashion lovers with the chance to resell their good quality clothes, providing an incentive to recycle the best quality items.

We are passionate about doing our bit to help solve fast fashion’s sustainability crisis. VENLA provides a sustainable and convenient way for you to give a new home to your used clothing and accessories while making money in the process.

Two weeks rack rental is $245* and in addition to the rack rental, we charge a 25% commission on sold items. (*Check out our special offers in our different stores)

(*check out pricing and offers in each VENLA store)

What kind of clothes can I sell at a rent-a-rack designer clothes store?

Go through your wardrobe and choose the items you would like to sell. Make sure that they are VERY GOOD QUALITY and CLEAN. Think what would sell well now in the current season. What would you buy now yourself? Great brands always sell well. Make your rack look attractive for the buyer. Please note we do not accept real fur, swimwear, jewelry or dirty or faulty garments or accessories.

How much can I save buying secondhand designer clothes?

Generally between 50% - 70 % or even more of the original full retail price. More importantly you are saving the planet!

How do I rent a rack?

Make your booking on VENLA website. Choose the dates that suit you. Your payment confirms your booking. You will receive email confirmation and username and password to access VENLA platform. If you choose the all-inclusive option, make your booking online and send us an email to confirm all-inclusive service.

How do I price my items?

What is your intention? Sell fast and offload most of your items?  In this case, price them affordably. Or are you wanting to be more strategic and work on your rack? Then do a bit more research on how much you want to sell them for.

Check what a new item sells for online. Make sure the garment is not cheaper online than you would charge for it. Think like a buyer. Is the garment in good shape? Is it good quality, brand and condition? Is it the recent season? How much would you pay for it? If you have the original price tags on in your garments take min 50% - 70 % off the original full retail price.

If you have high-end brands (handbags, shoes) including original receipts and/or authentication online services such as the Luxury Authentication Australia (LAA) will provide buyers peace of mind and a better price for you. We at VENLA have partnered with LAA and can assist you with your authentication. Make your rack attractive for the buyers and become a mini-entrepreneur at VENLA!

How do I create a price sheet?

You can easily price your items on the VENLA platform. Our price sheets are called product sheets. You start a new product sheet and go to enter items. You can name the sheet and write a short description of the item and your price. Save the sheet when you have listed all your items. We will see saved lists in our system and print the price tags for you when you bring your items to our store.
