You get your fruit and veg weighed at the supermarket, but have you ever put your new outfit on the scales before you pay?

This is the idea behind the Vintage Kilo Sale, which is coming to Bethnal Green next weekend.

At the sale, shoppers can pay for their fashion finds by weight. One kilo of clothes will cost just £15.

Marketing Manager Kieran Leckey said: “We just wanted to do something really East End – something no frills and a bit chintzy.

“We’re going to have about 150 rails of stock. It’ll literally a free for all.”

There will be 10 tonnes of vintage to choose from at the sale, including dresses, denim, shorts, jumpers and accessories. Entrance will be £1.

The event is organised by the start-up company Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, which was set up in 2007.

The Vintage Kilo Sale will be held in York Hall, Old Ford Road on March 2 from 4 – 7pm and on March 3 from 11am – 4pm.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
