Take advantage of the pre-loved uniform range of school and sports uniforms at the Second Hand Uniform Shop.

Second Hand Uniform Shop

The Mercedes College Parents and Friends Association (MP&FA) operates a second hand clothing service located upstairs in Strathspey. Many parents take advantage of our pre-loved uniform range of school and sports uniforms.

Opening Times

As of Monday 29 July, the Second Hand Uniform Shop is open during school terms on:

Monday              2.30pm – 4.00pm
Wednesday        8.00am – 9.00am

Please note: It is no longer open on Friday mornings. 

If you are unable to attend during this time, please phone the College on 8372 3200 during opening hours so volunteer staff can check to see what we have in stock and make arrangements for you. If you phone outside of this window, there may not be someone available to assist. 

Clothing is priced at approximately half the retail cost.


Selling Items 

Parents dropping off second hand uniforms, please complete the Second Hand Uniform Shop Consignment Form and drop this along with your good quality, freshly laundered or dry-cleaned uniforms to Strathspey Reception.

Parents will receive fifty percent of the ticket price credited to school fee accounts. If families have left the school the funds will be transferred to the bank account nominated on the Consignment Form. The remaining fifty percent goes to the Mercedes College Parents & Friends Association.

Please note:

  • All clothing must be washed, ironed and on individual hangers
  • Blazers, pinafores and skirts must be dry cleaned and presented with cleaning tags attached.
  • We cannot accept hats, socks/stockings, netball uniforms or any form of zipped school bag (eg. school backpack, sports bag) for hygiene reasons.
  • Clothing unsuitable for sale or unsold after 2 years will be donated (or disposed of) at the discretion of the volunteer staff who run The Second Hand Uniform Shop.
  • All clothing must bear the current school logo. The shop cannot accept the old school logo and cannot forward these items to a charitable organisation. Please check clothing carefully. Please see logos below for clarification.
