A carry on from my last post about rad Adelaide op shops :D
Hindley Street Goodwill
This place has changed hands recently + has gone for an entirely new look. They have a lot more thrown out fashion from small fashion shops, which is awesome, because they avoid landfill AND you can get a bargain.
The underground costume section is my FAVOURITE, and I have always been surprised with cool shit. I found one of my favourite costume dresses there for $5.00 years ago;
But I also trawled it recently + found some really cool stuff I can customise- here they are beforehand ;D
Does that crochet shrug + shirt look familiar? ;D
Little Worn Wardrobe
I discovered this place, it blew my mind and I HAD to share with you! It’s a little more expensive than most op shops, as it’s not only second hand, but it’s also genuine vintage items, records + hand made goodies from various local artists.
I spent $50 there today and got;
A pair of Gorman’s organic denim high waisted cut offs, a cropped argyl knit + chunky crazy scarf. Instead of offering plastic bags, they wrap your bundle up in strong brown paper + twine. Beautiful!
Alex also found some vinyl gems- Bruce Springsteens’s Dancing in the Dark and The Cars’ Shake it Up for $10.00 during a sale. Rad!
Gilles Street Market
I FINALLY managed to go to one of them recently- and by managed to, Alex and I stumbled upon it on our way to coffee. IT IS AMAZING. They really don’t happen often enough- I spent about $20 and got an amazing chunky lavender knit, high waisted skirt and a new-with-tags Princess Highway cobweb dress. Awesome!
I realised today, exactly HOW slack I have been with doing clothes customisations I keep promising mysElf, and it sucked. I'll hopefully get some more pictures up as I go along- I've just had zero motivation recently- it's the worst. What do you do when you're feeling sluggish + have no motivation to do anything? I can't think of anything asides from coffee! Teehee!
I'm thinking due to these op shop posts being so helpful, that I might do a post on awesome Adelaide vegan eats. What do you think? Drop me a line!
P.S; Check out my awesome Z bling! :D
