Second hand clothing
The sheer size of this shop is amazing and some of my favourite finds are from here. I went once to buy one skirt I saw in the window and came out with an armful of amazing garments which I have since put to good use. They also have a really good range of shoes, which I’m usually pretty wary about getting from an op shop but here they have heaps and they’re really high quality especially for secondhand.
I find something every time I visit this place, but be sure to set aside at least an hour if you really want a good search because this place is filled to the brim. The majority of it is pretty average (depending on your style of course but personally this is how I feel and I consider myself to be pretty sassy) The stuff here is pretty mainstream though not so much vintage as you would find with op shops on say K road. But there are still some really great finds to be had here!
Recycle Boutique has an impressive collection of clothing for you to sift through and find your next favourite wardrobe staple. This is where I would suggest you come if you are looking for jeans, especially if you are looking for smaller sizes which can be hard to find at the mall. If you are like me and can never have enough shoes then I would suggest you come armed with a wallet full of cash, they seem to always have an impressive range of Chuck Taylors and who can pass up a pair of new kicks?
Pictured is a pile of clothing in the CBD's recycle boutique waiting to be sorted through. Who knows what might be in those bags, perhaps it's just a whole lot of Ed Hardy cast offs or perhaps it's a bag full of vintage treasure! That's the best thing about Recycle Boutique - you never quite know what you're coming to come across. There's a great selection of men and woman's pre-loved clothing and accessories to pick from although it may take a while to find the treasure. About four years ago I picked up a great duffel coat there, and it's still a staple today. Definitely worth a browse.
