The Kowhai Tree opportunity shop (charity shop) which supports Women’s Refuge is a must-visit store in the old Silverdale shopping centre – Hospice also has a store nearby,
When I visited the shop at the beginning of April, it was packed with good quality clothes and shoes. The staff obviously makes sure worn items don’t end up on the racks, and it’s very reasonably priced.
My buy of the day was a Karen Walker skirt for $1 off the bargain rack outside the front door.
I also bought an early 1990s magazine-styled, buckle hard cased clutch for $3.
