As the conscientious consumer mindset gains momentum, the market of second-hand shopping and selling reaches an all-time high, with the fashion-forward and eco-conscious alike eager to turn trash into treasure. Whether you’re looking to reduce the size of your ‘floordrobe’ or start a selling side hustle, our favourite clothing consignment stores around Auckland are here to help.

Tatty’s

There are three Tatty’s consignment stores around Auckland, all specialising in designer, contemporary and vintage pieces. They’re proud to stock garments that are built to last and steer clear of fast fashion items. Instore and online, you’ll typically find a great mix of local and international designers, such as Wynn Hamlyn and GANNI. Down the road at Little Tatty’s, premium designers such as Comme Des Garçons and Isabel Marant reside. All accepted items follow a 6-week selling cycle, reduced by 50% by the fourth week and sellers receive a minimum of 45% of the sold price.

Recycle Boutique

Since opening its first Auckland store in 2005, Recycle Boutique has grown to an impressive 13-store portfolio, and its ethos is simple — it pays to recycle. Recycle accepts high-quality designer, contemporary and vintage goods. Your items will then move through a 7-week sale cycle — 4 weeks at full price, 2 weeks at 25% off and 1 week at 50% off. Once sold, you get 50% off the sale price. If your item doesn’t sell, you can either pick it up within 7 days or recycle it through their donation program which recycles approximately 350,000 clothing items annually!

& Again

A newcomer to the consignment scene is online store & Again. The online-based clothing store prides itself on taking the hassle out of selling your clothes. Rather than dropping off in-store, pop online and order a ‘tidy kit’. Simply fill your tidy kit with the clothes you no longer want, send it to the team (for free!) and they’ll sort through your wares ready for selling. The percentage of commission you’ll receive on sold items depends on the price it’s sold at — the higher the final sale price, the higher the percentage— with this reaching as high as 60%!
