SHOP REUSED, SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR MONEY

VENLA is a rent-a-rack second-hand store.  At VENLA MOSMAN and VENLA BONDI as well as VENLA ONLINE we provide an easy way for you to buy good quality second-hand garments from the local community and help the world become more sustainable.

It is all about playing your part in solving the fashion waste crisis.  The VENLA concept is firmly based on the ideas of sustainability, circular economy and recycling. Did you know that it requires 2600 litres of water to produce one T-Shirt!  Just buying one reused item in a year makes a big difference to the environment and your wallet!

“I usually wear the same dress 20 times.
RECYCLE. IT'S TOTALLY OK.
I even recommend it.”
Anna Wintour

DID YOU KNOW THE FASHION INDUSTRY IS ONE OF THE MOST POLLUTIVE INDUSTRIES IN THE WORLD?

The global challenge is that there are very few convenient options for people to reduce fashion waste and recycle in a way that is beneficial for the environment, community and the individual.

In Australia, we have limited options for a circular economy of good quality used fashion items. We can either donate them to charity stores or recycle drop-off boxes, which is a good thing to do. However, it’s unclear where many of  these items actually end up, and from an individual perspective, monetising the value of these pre-loved goods is obviously not possible. The other option is to sell the items via social media groups or similar marketplaces, but this is time consuming and complex, especially for second-hand fashion products.

What about those high value consignment stores? These are a great option if you have an expensive, high-end product (like a top design garment, watch or jewellery). But what about all those good quality clothing items, shoes and accessories that are beautiful and have value in them, but don’t qualify for consignment stores?

This is why we created VENLA Resell + Relove.

The concept of a self-service second-hand fashion market has been very popular and successful in Finland for years and we’re now proudly bringing this concept to Sydney. VENLA makes it easy, convenient and financially beneficial for you to resell or shop for second-hand fashion products. It’s a win-win situation for all, and most importantly the environment will thank you.

The Story behind the name ‘Venla’:

VENLA, our Muse, represents the strength of the female character. She is the spirited girl next door wooed by the brothers in “The Seven Brothers”  classic. This is the first-ever novel written in the Finnish language. The book was written in the 1860’s by the great Aleksis Kivi, national author of Finland.

What a great idea. I have sold items here and am doing another 2 week rack. I did my own pricing. The ladies are extremely helpful and it is wonderful to have good clothing recycled. I can thoroughly recommend doing this.

A fantastic idea with a positive impact on our planet! The ladies at Venla are so helpful and I was very pleased with the number of items that I sold. It was so easy to do and very well organised. It feels good to be part of the solution, instead of part of the problem.

I have rented with Venla twice now it’s been a good experience, both ladies are very helpful and friendly so will definitely rent a rack again at some stage. I have also bought a few items from the shop as the quality of the clothes and prices are great. I will happily pop in to check out some more bargains in the future. Thanks for a great idea so good to see recycling happening and less going to landfill.

Terrific concept. Minna & Satu are always so professional and helpful. The online booking system works very well and easy to use. Unlike other consignment stores, you have control over what items you choose (not only international labels) and pricing. I wish Minna & Satu well in their business - they work hard and deserve success.

VENLA is a rent-a-rack second-hand fashion store with a special twist..a place where you can give a new life to your clothes and find beautiful new garments at the fraction of store prices. I rented a rail to sell my clothing and accessories and in the process, met so many wonderful new locals,reconnected with friends not seen in a while not to mention forged a wonderful connection with the two store owners Satu and Minna who are exceptional on every level! I encourage you to do the same as we all need to stop our unwanted clothing ending in landfills and the process is it's so simple...what's not to love about VENLA. See you there soon!

The entire experience was absolutely a 5 star one! I chose the option to have my ‘no longer wanted’ clothes collected from my house, sorted and labeled for me by Satu and Minna in their ‘All Inclusive’ service. I was very impressed with their professionalism and friendliness and also, when checking out their store in Mosman, I found an inviting, airy and attractively designed shop with welcoming staff. Also, their location is in a really great position. I am planning to rent another rack and have also mentioned Venla to a number of interested people. Thank you.

It was so easy to sign up, book and organise my clothing for sale. I am very happy with the result and that someone else can enjoy wearing my pieces.

Absolutely love this concept, this store and the great team of Satu and Minna. They are both so helpful with everything! (and patient too!) Hanging out at the store feels like catching up with old friends - everyone chats to everyone and helps out with choices. So enjoyable, not to mention the great clothes and helping the environment! I'm a buyer and a seller and I'll definitely be back for both!
