How The Second-Hand Clothing Industry Works


  1. Ohhh, so that’s what Savers is! All these years I’ve heard Melbournians mention it online and wondered what the heck it was! I thought it was like a Go-Lo or something. It sounds much better than that.

  2. I’d really love a Savers down here in Tassie. I love that any clothes that aren’t saleable, or quickly sold, end up in areas that need them.

    Thanks for this Karen!

  4. That is fantastic, thank you Karen. Savers is one of our favourite stores and I often pop in to our local shop to see what is new. Particularly in the book section :grin:

    • When we go to visit family down on the Peninsula we go to the Franskton Savers….My fav things about Savers:
      They are always neat and clean.
      They sort garments into sizes and colors…..If you are looking for a black size 10 work skirt….you can find in within minutes of walking into the store.
      There is something for everyone there….from very casual to very formal.
      Always affordable
      Helps stop waste…..recycling can also be fashionable.

      • They will be pleased to hear your feedback, Michelle! And I agree with those points, even though I’ve not made it to the Frankston store, I’ve seen it in others I’ve been too.

    • There’s some real treasures to be found, M! :)

  7. I’m a lover of thrift shops too, I’ll surely visit Savers after the Lenten season. I saw that there’s an area for books too, I’m digging that! Thanks for sharing!

  8. That’s definitely a much bigger operation than I’d realized

  9. It’s really interesting to see the behind the scenes – I always wondered about the some profits going to charity thing.
