Peruse at your leisure.


Recycle Boutique 

Auckland CBD, Newmarket, Takapuna & Wellington CBD

Recycle Boutiques are constant treasure troves full of unique one-off pieces. Stock is changed regularly and the range is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. Whatever your style, there’s no doubt you’ll find something to fall in love with. Best part is, there are multiple locations around Auckland and in Wellington. Convenience is always key, right?


The Attic

Browns Bay

Right in the heart of Browns Bay you’ll find The Attic, a second-hand store focused on ethical fashion and decreasing textile waste. Housing designer labels from Sass and Bide to Kate Sylvester, it’s a place where you can grab a bargain AND save the planet, all we can say is sign us up!


The Bread and Butter Letter

K’ Road

All vintage boutique aficionados rave about The Bread and Butter Letter, located on K’ Road. Just like the street itself, this boutique absolutely oozes eclectic style and unique taste. There’s always a bargain to be found and you can rest assured no one will have anything quite like it. Yay to that.


St Vincent de Paul


St Vincent de Paul may just be the most unassuming contender on this list of second-hand faves, but despite it’s modest reputation, there are always secret goodies to be bagged. Being out of the Wellington centre, you’re more likely to score a real bargain too, so wins all around.



Cuba St

Looking for a unique outfit with some serious WOW factor? Ziggurat is THE place to go. This second-hand boutique is all about vintage pieces and has so many of the designers we all know and love. Here, you’ll definitely be able to find an ensemble to make it into your own sassy style.
