I love op shops and Savers is one of my favorites.
My three and half year old son's winter (size 2) clothes are all a bit small now and as the weather is getting colder, I have been looking around for some new clothes. I have been hesitant to pay $30+ for a jumper and jeans each (some would say tight...I like to think of it as thrifty LOL) and to be honest, I haven't really seen any I like (I hate all that stuff for little boys with skulls or bratty sayings).
Yesterday in desperation I went to Savers hoping to buy him at least one pair of jeans BUT I almost cried with gratitude at the quality and range of stuff I got to fill his entire wardrobe. I am now able to clean out all his sized 2 winter clothes and restock with jumpers, pants, tees and long sleeved tops.
I bought 21 items for $84!!!! Including Esprit (4 items) Old Navy, Gumboots, Fred Bare, Pumpkin Patch (5 items) Milkshake (2 items) Bonds etc. ALL in excellent condition!!!! How great is that? Okay so I was a little bit excited.
