Treasure vintage hunting in Dunedin, New Zealand

“I have to admit that someone already stole my heart. But the second place will go to this shop. The Preservation Society in Dunedin, New Zealand, is a room full of magical and sparkling dresses, hats, jewelry, shoes and more to discover.”

The first time we visited this shop I said to my boyfriend: ‘I’ll just take a quick peek in this shop because it looks so nice. He’d wish I’d never said that because I was truly lost between all the dresses, vintage jackets and shoes.

I felt like a kid in a candy store. I just wanted to have everything. Yes, everything! The store is a collection of things that the owner has carefully collected over the years. And I have to say, she truly did a great job. I never came across a vintage shop with such quality and diversity. The shop looks like a room full of treasures. You can just tell that this shop has received a lot of love.

I’ve bought a really nice poncho, some shoes and a bracelet. A nice touch is that some of the clothing has a tag attached to explain its history. The poncho that I have purchased for example was made by New Zealand Maori people. This poncho is definitely a keeper for me. Even my boyfriend bought a really nice woven tie. So both of us were very happy when leaving!
