If you are from Melbourne’s inner-north, then you have to like op-shops. If someone asks you where you got something you are wearing, you should always say Savers, even if it’s from Cotton On.
The folk over at the Red Cross have observed the Melbourne hipster love for recycled clothing, and earlier in the year opened a vintage boutique at 316 Brunswick St, Fitzroy.
Prices are a little higher than your regular op-shop (though not as high as, say, Hunter Gatherer) but everything they have is the cream of the recycled crop. Plus, you get to feel like a good person - all proceeds go to the work of the Red Cross.
