July 03 2020, 6.30 - 08.00PM

Clothes swap NZ

Update your wardrobe, meet new people, and just generally have an excellent evening out: come to 'Frock Swap' Whakatāne!

'Sustain-A-Ball'

Postponed due to COVID-19. A new date will be announced as soon as it's safe to run with again!

We're about THIS delighted to have been asked to help host 'Sustain-A-Ball', a Whakatāne-based prom, of sorts, celebrating "all things beautiful and secondhand":

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!

Featuring "preloved fashion, rescued food, sustainable party-wear providers, and planet-loving DJs", it's going to be THE coolest party. Grab a ticket, dress up in your most fabulous thrifted find, and come and have an amazing night to remember! 

Thriftin' With Kristen

March 10 2020 - Whakatāne

Whakatane business

Join our owner, Corrine, and her pals, Becs and Kristen, as they tour the recently-renovated Hospice Whakatāne store (ooh!), discuss the environmental benefits of buying preloved wares (there's! So! MANY!), and share their tips and tricks for op-shopping like total professionals (honestly, if you don't learn at least 5 amazingly helpful new hints? They'll eat their hats in front of you!). Word on the street is that there'll even be bubbles (fan-cy!) and cupcakes on arrival, too. F-u-n!

Re:Purpose Runway: Christchurch's Annual Preloved & Vintage Fashion Show & Market

August 10 2019 - Christchurch

Repurpose Runway Christchurch

We're thrilled to our frills to have been invited to participate in Re:Purpose Runway, the Home & Family Society's annual preloved and vintage fashion show and market in Christchurch.

"In the past we've had no plus-size options... and we'd like to fix that this year!" an e-mail from their lovely co-ordinator read (awesome, right?! It's fantastic that they've not only recognised this... but are doing something to change it!), so we'll be there with a selection of our gorgeous, curve-friendly, secondhand clothing - as well as a heap of plus-size vintage pieces from our sister 'site, The Online Vintage Store - then. Exciting! See you there!
