Hunting and gathering to build a store

The hard work has been completed and Hunter Gatherer finally opens at Knox Shopping Centre.

With the constant revival of old fashion and what’s old is new again; op shopping has never been so in vogue. Local fans of ‘upcycling’ will be excited to hear the renowned Hunter Gatherer recycled retailer has finally arrived at Knox Shopping Centre, where customers can shop for sassy recycled finds at bargain prices.

Every item in the store is handpicked from the hundreds of thousands of items donated to the
Brotherhood of St Laurence stores across Victoria. From purse friendly pants to blouses, handbags, skirts, coats, hats and shoes, upcycling stores have fabulous !nds for the fashion forward shopper as well as everyday wardrobe staples for the whole family.

Shoppers can purchase a garment knowing that their friends won’t be wearing exactly the same item at their next social occasion!

Customer purchases also contribute much needed funds to the Brotherhood of St Laurence to deliver its many programs and services, which prevent and alleviate poverty in Australia and help disadvantaged and marginalised people.

That kitchen setting is just fantastic! If I had somewhere to put it, I'd be snapping that up.

This place is now on my list of Things To Do on the weekend.

We have a 1960s house we moved into last year, it has been modernized, but that table would still suit perfectly! If I could just find the tiles to match pur green bath I would be set.

Hate it already. Would not enter the place. The thrill of rummaging is not to be found in such a sterile retail environment.

Oh dear...if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
Was this store set up by Trish who used to post here all the time? If so, she has done a great job - congratulations!

This is such an awesome store with a great layout. I love a good rummage too, but this store is suitable and perfect to "compete" with the mass produced retail stores at Knox City shopping centre!
