I'll be profiling or taking a peek into various cool businesses, products and places aroundabout here.
We're talking eco-minded, progressive smaller endeavours, with a definite more'ish quality.
How to define the boundaries of what is local to me? I'm going to take liberties there.
Even if you don't live around here, we can all do with a dollop of inspiration and a dose of voyeurism into someone else's heartfelt worklife, no?!
If you need to buy something, shop local and give your money where it'll count...give it to the good people! Support local goodness.
To start off, I bring you Go Jo's Recycled Clothing in Auckland's New Lynn.
A fun place to visit. Jo, the owner, is bubbly delicious and if you ask her if something looks good...you can trust her answer. I always appreciate that in a store owner.
Vintage mingles with designer here.
She seeks out beautiful clothes and accessories to pass onto you. You know how some people have an eye for the good stuff? Yup, Jo has it.
There's a $5 rack, and most things are between $10 and $14. Though the pristine vintage can go up to $40.
It's your one-stop-shop for all your clothing needs and vintage finds. Jo is handy with the sewing machine, and does beautiful work upcycling vintage clothes to modern standards and making sure everything on the racks is in good order. It's a pearl of a place to explore. Say hi from me.
