thrift thrifting haul opshopping

Thrift Haul

It’s been a long time since I posted a thrift/opshop haul here on the blog. As much as I love thrifting, I haven’t had the time to go or if I have, I’ve only bought one or two pieces that weren’t enough to feature in a post.

A few weekends ago, I made the time to go to my favourite Hospice shop and I got lucky because I came home with a bunch of thrifted goodies.

I have a mixture of clothing, books and a kitchen item so continue on if you want to know everything I got.

I’ll start of with the clothing items I got from the Hospice:

I got six things which were all from the fill-a-bag for $2 section in the Hospice warehouse.

I got this black McGINN KNIGHTSBRIDGE blazer. I have so many blazers but this was in my size and it seems well made. I haven’t heard of this brand before though but it’s a pretty good fit on me.

The brightest top in my haul is this green blouse with cutouts by the collar. I think this would look good with my favourite high-waisted pants for work.

This was a random purchase but because it was so cheap, I chucked it in the bag anyway. It’s this sweater with mesh and embroidered cutout details on the shoulders.

The remaining three are quite simple winter pieces. I got a scowl neck long-sleeve dress with pockets, a striped Glassons dress and the black blob on the bottom left is just a plain turtle-neck shirt.


Besides clothing, I scored some 7 books too.

I rarely buy brand new books anymore as I like to find new reads in thrift stores. I was stoked to find this hardbound copy of Nelson Mandela’s book.

The rest of the books I picked up were light reads and cook books.


Lastly, the one piece of kitchen item is this copper pizza tray:

I usually never check the kitchenware section of the Hospice warehouse but I saw this in the corner of my eye. Thankfully my bag still had room and I was able to fit it along with the clothes and books.

I got all the things above for $13! Yes, only thirteen dollars. 14 items for $13 is a pretty good deal to me!


Before I end this post, I also want to add the one item I got from a different Hospice shop.

I couldn’t resist buying this awesome top. it has a collar, laser cut details, 3/4 sleeves so good for this colder weather AND it is long enough that I can wear it with leggings.

This top actually ticks all the boxes for me and it is my style. It is great and I know it’s going to be a favourite of mine.

Turbo seems to approve of this purchase too. This is my favourite thrifted purchase so far this year and it was only $8.


Hauls like this is why I love thrifting/opshopping. I love bargains and finding pieces that I might not usually see in stores here in NZ. I may not go thrifting as much as I used to but I still find awesome things every time I go.
