Jules' Approved Black Friday

Black Friday is approaching, and it seems to bring out the shopaholic in all of us. It is that time of the year you can buy for yourself and feel no guilt. Especially when there are such great deals going on! Here are some of my top Preloved picks for Black Friday this year.

1. Frances Bean Top in Green + Grey 
Channel your inner grunge with this cute lightweight jersey + cotton flannel button-up. Pair it with jeans and your favourite sneakers to complete the look!

2. Angele Mitts in Crimson
Get your hands on (or into) these adorable crimson mitts. They are the go-to winter accessory and a perfect gift idea. They are made of salt and pepper speckle fleece and vintage reclaimed wool for the detailing and palms. These also come in Indigo!

3. Cindy Slippers
Keep those toes warm outside + inside this winter season. Our Cindy Slippers are 100% sustainable, constructed from upscale leather and reclaimed wool.

4. Justice Scarf in Red
Where's the hot cocoa? This scarf is the perfect piece to bundle up with, and get into the holiday spirit! This scarf features new fabrics in red, along with upscaled wool sweaters.

5. Logan Coat in Navy
Look chic - but feel cozy. This coat is the perfect balance between the two. The Logan Coat is made from poly fleece in navy with reclaimed sweater detailing and recycled leather accent around the pocket. This coat is a flow fit - also available in grey and white!

6. Kriss Sweatshirt in Grey
Shop Preloved for your favourite guy! The Kriss Sweatshirt is made from poly fleece in grey and reclaimed vintage wool sweater panels. It is also available in green!

7. Noel Pillow
Decorate your favourite spaces in Preloved pillows. The Noel Pillow is one of my favourites because it is like snuggling up to your favourite sweater! This pillow is constructed from a black and white striped fabric which stays consistent on every pillow and 100% vintage sweaters, with a plaid black panel.

8. Season Vest
The Ugly Holiday pieces at Preloved scream one of a kind! This Season Vest is sure to get you into the holiday spirit complete with adorable reindeers and spruce trees. This vest is 100% vintage and absolutely unique and totally fun.

Staff Picks: Kirsten

So excited to bring back Staff Picks!

This week I’m thrilled to talk to Kirsten [kirs10alexa], our Production Coordinator. I HAD to ask her a few questions, so you guys get to know her better. She’s the newest edition to our small, hardworking, and adorable team. 

So if you don’t like something... IT’S ALL KIRSTEN’S FAULT!!! 


"In my first year in high school, I went by the name 'Minnie' back then I thought it was cool. looking back now ... oh man what was I thinking. But one of my closest friends calls me by "kirs" its no nickname but hey its better then Minnie."


"Production Coordinator at Preloved. I love the creative side when it comes to picking and selecting the vintage for the up coming styles for the season. You never know what you'll find when you're at the Rag houses. To see the Final Product is my favourite part of the job!"


"UP! You would never except a Disney movie  to start off with such a sad story. When it first starts off with Carl and Ellies as kids, then later shows their lives together. The death of his wife made me cry"


"Being a young mom and working like crazy, can get overwhelming. So in my past time I like to take trips on the ferry boat to the Island and walk around. Just enjoying the view especially in the fall and winter, as the leafs fall or when it's snowing, its just so beautiful."


"I've been recently listening to a lot of Mariah Carey. From 1995- 2010 Mariah Carey's albums never gets old. I like listening to music in the late 90's/early 2000"

Logan Coat $102      |      Betty Mitts $15      |      Snowdome Shorts $36

Thank You!

We had such a great time showing at World MasterCard Fashion Week this year. It made our 20th anniversary a memorable one! Everything we've accomplished wouldn't have been possible without a great team to back us up. I wanted to thank everyone who has supported Preloved these past 20 years and especially the people who were involved in the last couple months. 

I want to give special thanks to our sponsors Guilhermina Shoes, SIGG North America, SoulScapes Designs, Redwood Classics and Shannon Murree for coming on board this crazy ride! I also wanted to say thanks to all Preloved's collaborators, they've supported us for years and Preloved wouldn't be what it is today without independent Canadian boutiques. I also want to thank Team Preloved, the people I work with day in and day out. And lastly, thank you to everyone who came to the show! We hope you enjoyed it! We had so much fun and we really hope we get to do it again.

Now that fashion week is officially over it's time to get back to normal and get back to work.

Preloved Presents TWENTY with Shannon

We had Shannon Murree come by the Preloved design studio and we had a blast! 

Shannon is a wife, mother, investor and all around business woman. She is passionate about activism and philanthropy all while being a licensed REALTOR®. Owner and licensee of Simcoe County MOMpreneur®, CEO and founder of Canadian Women Investment Network (WIN). As well as Director of charity organization Prom Blitz Project. A charity that promotes self-confidence and unique beauty by providing prom dresses to high school girls that can't quite afford them. It has been such a privilege to meet a fellow "momprenuer" that rules out the notion that we can't have everything. Because we sure can! I'm so happy to have Shannon come on board to Preloved family and so thankful for her support.

Preloved Presents TWENTY with Kate Plummer from Sigg

SIGG was founded 100 years ago by Ferdinand Sigg. They originally manufactured household goods from aluminium such as bed and drinking bottles. Nowadays SIGG is spreading great design, quality and sustainability with their reusable water bottles.

Using reusable water bottles does wonders for your carbon footprint. One plastic bottle can take hundreds of years to decompose which flood up our landfills. Even the production of one plastic bottle uses energy, omits toxins and uses a lot more water to make than you can actually put into the bottle for drinking. Reusable bottles are durable, stylish and better for the environment and your health.

It was an absolute hoot having Kate Plummer come by our studio and make us laugh with her Zoolander poses, reminding me how much I love Charlie's Angels and joining me in a much needed dance off. We're so excited to have SIGG as one of our sponsors. To gain new supporters and friends on our 20th year in fashion makes it even more of a party. 

Watch out for SIGG's amazing products at WMCFashion Week. For more information visit or follow SIGG on Instagram @siggnorthamerica 

Kate wears the Logan coat and Vimy top underneath and Julia wears the Pearl top.
