Welcome to Use-Ta!



Established in November of 2014, Use-Ta! is Melbourne's best preloved children's wear store with hundreds of consignment clients and thousands of happy customers- we know you will love it too!

Our mission is simple: to extend the lifespan of children's clothing while reducing waste and promoting a greener future. We firmly believe that every piece of clothing has a story to tell and deserves a second chance to bring joy to another child. By offering a carefully curated selection of preloved children's wear, we empower parents to make eco-conscious choices without compromising on style or their budget.

Use-Ta! was inspired by my own parenting, because I love dressing my kids well, but I also value having sustainable options wherever possible. I knew families had tonnes of outgrown clothing sitting at home, because I was working as a cleaner while my first born was a baby. I love helping families keep on top of the clutter and chaos that comes with children, while helping the environment, plus I'm still obsessed with kids' fashion! 

At Use-Ta!, we understand that children outgrow their clothing faster than we can keep up. That's why we've created a platform where parents can conveniently buy and sell gently used clothing in excellent condition. By fostering a community of like-minded parents, we aim to create a circular economy that benefits everyone involved. It's a win-win situation: parents can earn extra income by selling their children's outgrown clothing, while others can find beautiful and affordable options for their little ones.


Quality is of utmost importance to us. We carefully handpick each item, ensuring that it meets our strict standards for condition, cleanliness, and style. We understand the importance of well-made clothing that can withstand the adventures of childhood, so you can shop with confidence, knowing that every item we offer is of the highest quality.

Customer satisfaction is at the core of our values. We strive to provide a seamless and enjoyable shopping experience for our customers. Our user-friendly website, detailed product descriptions, and clear photographs make browsing and selecting items a breeze. We are dedicated to prompt shipping, secure packaging, and responsive customer support to ensure that you are delighted with your purchase every time.

Join us on this exciting journey towards sustainable fashion for children. Explore our collection, discover unique pieces, and give preloved clothing a new lease of life. Together, let's reduce waste, save money, and create a brighter future for our little ones.
