You Are Invited to Celebrate Restoration Day! #Reloved

We are very excited to announce that we are launching the UK’s first ever nationalRestoration Day on Saturday 22nd August 2015!

restoration Day

Second hand, isn’t second best. Items can be found on Preloved almost brand new – but for all those in need of an extra little TLC, you can restore items back to value whilst saving yourself money in the process. This is what Restoration Day is all about!

Here at Preloved, we already celebrate the joy of second hand every year on National Second Hand Day, and we often share recycling and upcycling ideas to help inspire the Preloved community to resist brand new items. However, we recognise that some items advertised on Preloved are more valuable in their original state, so we wanted to promote the value that can be found in restoration!

With over 13,000 classic cars, and 12,000 pieces of antique furniture and period collectibles advertised for sale, we will be celebrating the value that can be found in restoring, refinishing, refurbishing and “reloving” period items back to their former glory.

During the run up to the day, you will be able to enjoy:

  • Inspiring restoration articles written by experts in the antiques, property renovation and classic cars industries
  • Annual Preloved membership deals, so you can get a head start in their restoration journey
  • Restoration ideas shared across our social channels, including an exclusive Twitter chat!

Restoration Day has been kindly sponsored by leading UK delivery comparison website, As part of this partnership, all you lucky retorers will be able to get your hands on £10 toward any delivery arranged through AnyVan on the day. We will also be running a competition in partnership with AnyVan, with an unmissable get-away prize!

Keep your eyes peeled and follow us on Twitter and Facebook to ensure you are kept up to date with the exciting upcoming events, and celebrate UK’s first ever national Restoration Day with us on 22nd August!
