Recycled Threads made it's debut back in 2010. Sara Hobson, Owner - started her career in fashion retail as a buyer for a local high end boutique. Once she became a mom, it became her ultimate goal to keep her career and be home with her family. She began selling pre owned high end designer clothing from her previous clients at "rack sales" she would have out of her home.
The idea for the Rack Sales came from shopping sample sales, while on work trips to New York & Los Angeles. We thought the concept was genius, so we wanted to imitate this same idea in Wichita, Ks. Bringing high end fashion to the women who live here (and surrounding areas) at a discounted price.
"My vision for this business, came from my love of designer clothing & wanting everyone to be able to afford it. Being the mother of two beautiful girls, I am always searching for ways to be a good role model to my daughters. I think it is uber chic to be Eco-Friendly too. Buying & selling pre-loved clothing is a major form of recycling - Reclaiming & re-using items that might have otherwise ended up in landfill. Fact: The average person throws away 100 pounds of clothing a year."
In 2012, Recycled Threads launched its website - offering our pre-loved merchandise to fashionistas everywhere. Being online allows unlimited, exclusive access to the ultimate collection of pre-owned designer fashion.
In 2016, we moved to our current location in the Wichita, Ks Douglas Design District. Being in the DDD is exciting for us in many ways! We are stoked to able to be a 2nd Saturday merchant. We open up the shop on the 2nd Saturday Weekend (Friday & Saturday) of every month - giving the ladies of ICT a look at the most sought after closets in the Midwest! We are excited about this new adventure.
