Salvos Store Rosebud

Salvos Store Rosebud

On my travels to the Mornington Peninsula I stumbled across a Salvos full of amazing vintage pieces on the main drag in Rosebud. From a cabinet of vintage purses and clutches in mint condition between $5-$20, vintage pumps, to a great selection of baggage including a...
Thrifting gifts

Thrifting gifts

I don’t know about you but I feel like every weekend there’s a birthday, engagement party, bridal shower, wedding, baby shower, bar mitzvah or farewell and I’m forever scrambling to rustle up gifts! Don’t get me wrong, I love giving presents but I’m almost...
Red Cross Opshop

Red Cross Opshop

You know it’s going to be a good day when an opshop has sale signs all over its windows! We hit the jackpot at the Red Cross Thrift store in Caloundra a few weeks back with their special offer of 50% off on the second item. I took advantage of it and picked up a few...
Steeple Opshop

Steeple Opshop

The Steeple Opshop is far from steep…the day we popped in they were having a 50% off sale…potentially the best day of my life! The place is chockers with goodies. Evidently they’re constantly getting fresh stock and right now they’re overwhelmed with winter stock,...

Opshop Regret

Red Hill Opshop

Red Hill Opshop

Every garment has a story

Every garment has a story

Every garment has a story. A dress worn on a first date, a pair of earrings that were a 21st birthday gift, a t-shirt worn on the best family holiday ever, a sweater that saw someone through winters in a freezing Queenslander with no insulation, a homemade floral...
Tunes to thrift to

Tunes to thrift to

Don’t panic, I resisted the urge to add Macklemore’s ‘Thrift Shop’…pretty sure you’ve all heard it at least 99 times, but to get you pumped to pop some tags here’s some tunes to thrift to! When I go op shopping I like to get...
The Vintage Nest

The Vintage Nest

If you’re driving between Brisbane and Sydney, do yourself a favour and take the exit to Bellingen (just south of Coffs Harbour). It’s pretty much the halfway point between the two capital cities and it’ll be one of the best 15 minute detours you’ll ever take. Aside...
Eat + Drink + Thrift

Eat + Drink + Thrift

There was eating, drinking and thrift shopping at BMW Brisbane last night, not to mention a fashion show styled with garments from the Salvos and Tum Vintage and modelled by the beauties from Vivien’s who were escorted down the runway by pooches provided by...
