Top second hand clothing stores
Second hand clothing stores (or opshops) offer a sustainable and budget-friendly alternative to fast fashion. Here are some top locations in New Zealand and Australia:
.
New Zealand:
.
Recycle Boutique -  With thirteen locations across the country, Recycle Boutique offers a huge variety from vintage pieces to modern clothing, as well as a range of accessories including jewellery, sunglasses and bags. The store works in a way where customers hand in their pre-loved clothes that are then priced and sold. You'll also get 50% of the sale price back! Because each item is carefully sorted through on arrival, you'll find yourself trying on high quality pieces of clothing that have been looked after. Perfect for events as well as day to day wear. As it is a boutique, some items can be a little pricey, but you can also grab a great bargain!
.
Online second hand - A great way to shop sustainably without leaving the house. My recommendations for online second hand clothing would be Trade Me, as well as Depop. You'll have to do a bit of searching, but the great news is that once you've found something you like, tons of alike items will be recommended to you!
.
Local opshops - The best way to grab a bargain while caring for the planet is always through your local opshops. While you may have to do a little digging, majority of my favourite items are from places you'd never expect to find them! It's also a great way to find furniture and décor for good value. There's nothing that matches the feeling of finding a hidden gem that soon becomes a wardrobe staple. Not to mention that the proceeds from all your purchases go towards a charity, so what's not to love?!

Australia:
.
UTurn vintage - UTurn has multiple locations across Australia, selling vintage hand-picked clothing. High quality stock for low prices! Perfect place to get your hands on some sustainable, true vintage gems.
.
Savers - Savers offers a wide variety of second-hand clothing, accessories, and household goods. They have over 300 stores across the country! Head down to you local Savers and grab a great deal.
.
Local markets - Keep an eye out on facebook or for posters put up around your suburb, as the occasional pop up or local market may be selling some real finds! Support lots of small businesses while shopping through their hand picked range of second hand items.

 

 

When shopping at second-hand clothing stores, it is always a good idea to check for any signs of wear and tear before making a purchase, and to keep in mind that sizing may vary from modern standards. Happy shopping!
