Hi Opshop Queen – I’m organising an ‘op-shopping camp’ / girls getaway for some of the teenage girls at our church. We’re all keen opshop fans. We plan to stay at Waipu Cove – so will definitely visit the Presbyterian Opshop there – and I thought we could pop along to the Ruakaka Anglican one (if it’s open – hard to contact them – do you know? We’d be visiting on a weekday in the 2nd week of school hols.) Using your recent post as a guide we’ll also stop at Wellsford on the way up and visit the Anglican opshop there, as well as maybe the hospice shop although we’ll heed your note that it’s more expensive. If you have any other suggestions on places we could visit, that would be great. We’re driving up from East Auckland by the way. Thank you and lovely site – Steph
Hi, thanks for the comment. Check out my blog for the Orewa stores as there are quite a few and are worth visiting. But the cheapest and best – if you like rummaging – are in Warkworth. Visit the Methodist Church on Neville St. At the back they have a opshop with an attached shed. You can fill a grocery shopping bag with items for $2 from the shed. Then next door is the Homebuilders opshop which also usually has great buys. Although both these stores are open weekdays they do close at noon. If you are into books/magazines and the usual secondhand items then the Museum opshop just off Queen St is a must and opens at 9.30am. Have a great time!
I loved NZ when I visited the country a few years ago. Look forward to reading up on your finds from such a beautiful country 🙂
Love your blog! Just thought I’d let you know that Hospice West Auckland has just opened a brand new boutique style store in Hobsonville, at 6 Clark Road (around the corner from the new Countdown). We’d love to see you there.
thanks, I will
