Opshop Haul

I haven’t posted an opshop/thrift haul in a long time so I thought I’d finally share with you what I got from my local Hospice last time I went. I didn’t get too much stuff but I still found some good things both in the actual opshop and in the Hospice warehouse section.

I got a mixture of brands this time too from Dotti, Lululemon and Kathmandu.

If you want to see my full haul, continue below.

Bargain Thrift Haul

I have another thrift haul to share today. I wanted to share this one because it is from a bargain bin of one of my favourite opshops.

As you may know, I love thrifting/opshopping and I go to a few different ones. One of the North Shore Hospice shops has a warehouse at the back of the normal shop where there are bargain bins and piles of clothing, books, appliances and furniture. The warehouse shop of the North Shore Hospice is the cheapest of all opshops I go to.

Thrift Haul

It has been a while since I posted a thrift haul but I have thrifted a few times these past two months. I will break it down into two posts so this is the stuff I got from Savemart and Recycle Boutique. I’ll save the other one for another day because I don’t want this to be too long.

If you want to see what I got including the awesome dress above which I wore to NZ Fashion Week, click below.

Collective Thrift Haul

One weekend, my sister and I really wanted to go out of the house but since we were over going to the mall, we checked out Savemart instead as we haven’t been there in a long time.

We didn’t get a lot of things from Savemart but I got lucky finding the Kenzo Paris dress above. I also got a few things from Recycle Boutique and an op shop close to my house.

See below for everything I’ve thrifted lately.

Thrifting/Op shopping Tips

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure

I have been asked multiple times on my “secret” to op shopping. For those that don’t know, thrifting or op shopping is when you go shopping at thrift stores, second-hand shops or charity shops. It has also been popularised by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis with their song Thrift Shop. If you haven’t heard of that song, you may have been living under a rock.

So basically, you are looking at pre-loved/second hand items that have mostly been donated by others. I am a serial op shopper. I am obsessed with it (as you can tell from my thrift hauls) and I love the thrill of finding a great pieces for bargain prices.

Opshop Haul: SaveMart

My previous opshop haul was from Recycle Boutique. This time around, I checked out my nearest SaveMart in hope of getting some good stuff.

SaveMart can be a hit and miss. It is a huge opshop and the amount of stuff inside can be overwhelming. I could easily spend more than 2 hours in there if I go through every single rack but it will also give someone a headache.

For this opshopping trip, I didn’t have anything in mind and I managed to get a few things. I was even lucky enough to find a Forever New dress!

See below for further details.

Opshop haul: Recycle Boutique

I absolutely love opshopping. I have found so many treasures in the opshops and clothes from brands that aren’t easily available in New Zealand.

I don’t have much free time to go opshopping nowadays but I like to check Recycle Boutique in the city after work. Recycle Boutique is not the cheapest opshop out there but they have really good brands.

I’ve picked up these two in the past month.
