About us

Welcome to Preloved @ Pearls and Scarlett Dress Agency
At Pearls and Scarlett Dress Agency, we believe that everything deserves a second chance to make a first impression.
The business was started in early 2007 by Shona & Lee Harding and since then it has continued to grow into a thriving business, specializing in the resale of preloved clothing, shoes, handbags, and accessories
As well as busy Ebay and Depop online shops we also have a busy retail shop hidden away beneath the bustling street of Irongate in the heart of the Cathedral Quarter in Derby.

The Derby Dress Agency Shop is open Thursday/Friday & Saturday 9.30-3.30pm.  Please note - In the run up to Christmas we have been opening the shop on a Tuesday from 9.30 - 3pm.  Please call 07900 910844 to check before making a special journey, however, if the A-board is out then we are open for business.
